Solr GermanyFor those of you unable to attend our 2011 Solr summit series this past week in Munich and Frankfurt — How Open Source Search Is Changing The World — we’ve now posted some of the presentations:

  • Marc Krellenstein, founder and CTO of Lucid Imagination, spoke about trends in search, with some discussion about the historic and contemporary landscape of search technologies, followed by a discussion of how Lucidworks Enterprise was designed to address key gaps in the open source/enterprise landscape.
  • Ebay KleinanzeigenOlaf Zschiedrich, Head of Technology at Lucid Imagination customer eBay Kleinanzeigen (formerly Kijiji), presented a case Study on their Solr installation (presentation not available). A couple of data points about this ‘classic’ classified advertising site: they run ~ 60 M requests per day, peaking at ~1500 Solr request per second, with an average response time of about 20 ms for searches and down to a typical 3 ms for auto-suggestions.
  • ImmobilityThomas Kwiatkowski & Oliver Schönherr of Immobilien Scout, the leading German online real estate site, discussed how they used an iterative approach to move to Solr from a legacy search & data infrastructure. They’re a big shop, with 67 developers in an organization of 500 people. Today, they serve over 5 million monthly visitors, with over 1.2 million listings from 110K real estate providers.
