News Search at Bloomberg

By on September 19, 2016

As we countdown to the annual Lucene/Solr Revolution conference in Boston this October, we’re highlighting talks and sessions from past conferences. Today, we’re highlighting Solr Committer Ramkumar Aiyengar’s talk, “Building the News Search Engine”.

Meet the backend which drives News Search at Bloomberg LP. In this session, Ramkumar Aiyengar talks about how he and his colleagues have successfully pushed Solr to unchartered territories over the last three years, delivering a real-time search engine critical to the workflow of hundreds of thousands of customers worldwide.

Ramkumar Aiyengar leads the News Search backend team at the Bloomberg R&D office in London. He joined Bloomberg from his university in India and has been with the News R&D team for nine years. He started working with Apache Solr/Lucene four years ago, and is now a committer to the project. Ramkumar is especially curious about Solr’s search distribution, architecture, and cloud functionality. He considers himself a Linux evangelist, and is one of those weird geeky creatures who considers Lisp beautiful and believes that Emacs is an operating system.
