The Search for Better Search at Reddit
Reddit, the seventh most popular website in the world, needed a search app that could handle their 320M users posting 1M posts, 5M comments, and 75M votes every day across 1.1M communities—plus 75M queries daily. After trying five different search stacks over 12 years, they needed a solution that could scale.
The team at Reddit built faster, scalable, more responsive search with Lucidworks Fusion that reduced hardware, increased relevancy, and lays the foundation for further search improvements.
Reddit’s CTO, VP of Engineering, and Director of Engineering joined us at Lucene/Solr Revolution 2017 in Las Vegas to share their experiences with search and plans moving forward.
