Jazzed about Solr: People as a Search Problem

Presented by Joshua Tuberville | eHarmony

Search oriented architectures are obvious approaches for web pages, emails, documents, and other text based entities. Often with traditional structured data, text searching is "added on" to the traditional Boolean queries in relational stores. When Jazzed was initiated we wanted search to be front and center. When we evaluated Solr we realized we could take the opposite approach "add on" Boolean components to textual searches. This hybrid query approach makes transitioning to flexible ranking easy and straightforward. In this talk we will cover

  • How we model semi-structured user data in Solr
  • Indexing strategies and their tradeoffs
  • Where in Jazzed architecture Solr does and doesn't fit
  • What aspects of Solr we are using
  • Future considerations
