We have data in text files and a mysql database that we need indexed and searchable. Think of the data as similar to the data on youtube. We have videos, meta-info, tags, and comments. People need to be able to go onto our site and search for "funny rabbits" and find results that have funny videos of rabbits. Simple concept, but we need a top-notch developer to design and implement a fast, accurate, reliable, and scalable solution. We are not worried about the front-end display of results, but the searching functionality needs to support the return of a configurable number of results per page. It should also be easily integrated with a dynamic ajax website so that, say, if there are 100 results, not all 100 results are returned as once, but instead they are retrieved as needed to save time and bandwidth.
