How SolrCloud Changes the User Experience in a Sharded Environment
The video above focuses on a new feature of Solr called SolrCloud, and its impact on the design of Solr-based search apps.
The next major release of Solr (4.0) will include "SolrCloud", which provides new distributed capabilities for both in-house and externally-hosted Solr installations. Among the new capabilities are: Automatic Distributed Indexing, High Availability and Failover, Near Real Time searching and Fault Tolerance. This talk will focus, at a high level, on how these new capabilities impact the design of Solr-based search applications primarily from infrastructure and operational perspectives.
