Vanilla, an Open Source business intelligence application by bpm-conseil.com, offers unique features such as report indexing through an embedded Lucene integration. Using Vanilla and Lucene, developers can manage both report indexing and external document indexing, which ultimately saves end users time when they search for specific keywords such as "product code," or "customer code." Vanilla can build upon an existing Solr/Lucene installation that takes care of all the indexing processes while Vanilla takes care of the Reporting/Dashboard creation. During this presentation, attendees will learn how we moved from embed Lucene Api to a Solr/Lucene platform and all the technical and business benefits from this architecture in terms of clustering, caching and access mode.
In this talk, Lucene/Solr committer Mark Miller will discuss the low level architecture and design decisions around SolrCloud and distributed indexing. Come learn about the latest work on Solr's new scaling and fault tolerance solution - how it works and how we built it.
