Clients wants to go full PaaS with Sitecore 9 and Sitecore Experience Commerce 9.
We have existing solution which was built with Sitecore 8.2 and Sitecore Commerce 8.2.1 with Solrand it's deployed as IaaS on Azure. We would like to continue using Solr as Search Provider instead of Azure Search also in upgraded solution.
I saw there is possibility to create VM in Azure and install Solr there but I want to have Solr just somewhere as a service and specify connection string at the end.
Is there possibility to use Solr as SaaS in Azure or other cloud platform?
I saw there is https://www.searchstax.com/. Can you recommend this or something similar?
