Hybrid Search

The question is which one is right for me?

Microsoft recommends that you choose cloud hybrid search for these benefits:

  • Your users get unified search results, search relevance ranking, and refiners even if your organization has a hybrid deployment with content both on-premises and in Office 365.
  • Your users automatically get the newest SharePoint Online search experience without your organization having to update your existing SharePoint servers.
  • Your users can use cloud capabilities such as Office Delve also for your on-premises content.
  • You no longer have to worry about the size of your search index, because your search index is in Office 365. This means that the footprint of your SharePoint Server 2013 search farm is smaller, and your total cost of ownership for search is lower.
  • You don't need to upgrade any of your existing installations of SharePoint to have enterprise search in the cloud because SharePoint Server 2013 supports crawling of existing SharePoint Server 2007, SharePoint Server 2010 and SharePoint Server 2013 content farms.
  • You no longer have to migrate your search index to a newer version of SharePoint because this happens automatically for you in Office 365.

If you have some on-premises content that’s highly sensitive and shouldn’t be indexed outside your on-premises network, then we recommend using a combination of cloud hybrid search and hybrid federated search.
