Is there a way to implement Azure Search with Sitecore 8.1x? Currently I can see only one option to update current Sitecore instance to 8.2x.

Out of the box Azure Search is only available on Sitecore 8.2 update 1 and above.

If you wanted to use it on earlier versions you would have to write your own provider for it.


Jamie Scott has implemented Azure Search for Sitecore 8.1. However this is not officially supported by Sitecore. Here is the git repo for the same. https://github.com/jscott1277/SitecoreAzureSearchProvider
