Has anyone every used Amazon CloudSearch with Xenforo? I know that Enhanced Search utilizes ElasticSearch by Apache. Is there an Enhanced Search like plugin that utilizes CloudSearch instead? Is that even possible and an option?

Thanks,

From what I seem to recall, the Cloud Search API was unrelated to Elasticsearch's, so it'd effectively have to be a distinct implementation.

CloudSearch is based on SOLR and I believe you can use SOLR clients. Definitely possible, as in most things are possible and I considered it - briefly. But really other than saving a bit on configuration and being a bit more fault tolerant, the cost of developing your own implementation and the actual cost of CloudWatch itself makes it not worthwhile.
