Apache Solr Committer, Varun Thacker from Lucidworks will share some of the goals of Solr's Autoscaling framework, and Reddit Software Engineer, Jerry Bao from will be sharing how the Reddit teams continues to scale their search infrastructure using features built on Solr. Food & drinks will be provided. Hope to see you there!


--Solr's AutoScaling Framework, Presenter: Varun Thacker, Solr Committer, Lucidworks--

The goal of Solr's AutoScaling framework is for search clusters to be able to grow to a trillion documents without much human intervention.
We'll discuss practical use-cases to keep the cluster healthy and performing optimally, complete with fault tolerance.
For example, we'll cover how to achieve these scenarios by utilizing the framework.

- Effectively managing disk space by setting triggers and sending out
- Maintaining a minimum replication factor when nodes go down. We'll
also use rules to make sure the replicas are spread out, thus maximizing
fault tolerance.

The talk will cover how to use the suggestions end-point to know the violations in your cluster.
