Lucense is a (free) incredibly fast search engine and you can use it against any content, since it has a very loose model where you put “documents” into the index and you can decide yourself which properties the document should have. For example I have used it to accomplish fast full text searching against an existing  MS SQL Server database, where some of the indexed properties just were pointers into the database tables (article_id column is one example.)
