Join Lucene/Solr committers, Lucidworks experts and Solr 4.0 users to learn how Solr 4.0 dramatically improves scalability, performance, and flexibility.  An overhauled Lucene underneath sports near real-time (NRT) capabilities allowing indexed documents to be rapidly visible and searchable. Lucene’s improvements also include pluggable scoring, much faster fuzzy and wildcard querying, and vastly improved memory usage. These Lucene improvements automatically make Solr much better, and Solr magnifies these advances with “SolrCloud.”

In this session, you’ll learn how to use SolrCloud to transform your existing Solr application into a highly scalable, fault tolerant solution with distributed indexing and search capabilities. You will see demonstrations of SolrCloud in action, and learn how to configure and tune your own cluster. Learn how Solr 4.0 can be used as a NoSQL store, how to do near real time search at scale, and all the tricks of the trade for maintaining your cluster over the long term. Whether you’re looking to build a 5 node cluster or a 100 node cluster, this session will put you on your way to becoming knowledgeable in SolrCloud configuration, scaling, monitoring and tuning. There are many other changes that will be surveyed as well. This session will cover these improvements in detail, comparing and contrasting to previous versions of Solr.
