It's less appropriate if you can't afford your data being persisted on a cloud service. Also, if search is a key component of your business I don't believe relying on a third-party service is worth it. Deploying your own Elasticsearch cluster is not that hard of an endeavour and would also save you money.
However, for any other use case Algolia will save you a lot of time and give your business amazing full text search capabilities with minimum friction and time.

Any consumer-facing business that needs instant search results for user searches. Excellent fits would be e-commerce solutions and marketplaces. If your traffic is low it is also a relatively cost-effective solution than using your own solution (e.g. elastic search). Perfect for teams that do not have the architectural knowledge to set up their own search solutions.

Algolia is great anytime you need client search. I would never use it to do any automated tasks or anything like that, though. It's great for human use, and I don't know if anyone would ever want to use it for anything other than client-search, but Algolia knows its domain very well and solves client search more easily than any alternative I've seen.

Algolia provides lightning fast search results and allows you to customize and pull in results from a lot of different places. Support and reliability are top notch and I have no problem recommending it to anyone.

Smaller companies with less tech resources may find Swiftype somewhat more user friendly to implement and use, but Algolia can definitely be plug and play if you only have one platform and can just use their out of the box plugins (Shopify, WP, etc.)

If you have a dedicated developer who has the technical know-how to delve deep into Algolia's documentation to figure out what makes it tick, this is the product for you. Algolia's framework is extremely powerful, making search instantaneous and providing users with results at break-neck speeds. If all you need is great search, but you do not require a complex relevancy algorithm running it, Algolia will work well for you. The more complex your use case, the more expensive the product becomes.

Algolia is best suited for e-commerce websites where you have a large number of products to display to your customers. It could also be useful for knowledge bases and site search.

It may be less suited for small amounts of data since a simple algorithm can work just as well.

Algolia supports platforms that are web-based and Windows phone app based, which makes it more flexible. It focuses on features like API and SSL Security. The search results provided by Algolia are super-fast and very useful. It is extremely useful in a high-speed environment where data is required at your [fingertips]. When there is complex systems involved, it does a very good job.

[It's] well suited when you don't want to manage search infrastructure and favor spending your development cycles on your competitive advantage.
