As is ElasticSearch. (Apache 2 License)


Although it's not an Apache project, it appears to be an open community.

ElasticSearch.com is now a Corp, which could at some point in the future
decide to refocus on a commercial version.

As Thomas said, its based on Lucene, which was not designed as a
persistence store like MongoDB, other NoSQL, LevelDB or RDBMS's. Both TarMK
and MongoMK on MongoDB were. ES doesn't loose data because it has features
on top of Lucene than make it both elastic and reliable, provided you
deploy on at least 3 servers. (ideally 5 or more).
