Learn how Solr advances its capabilities in release 4.0 with the addition of “SolrCloud”. In this session, you will 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, learn how to configure and tune your own cluster, and gain practical experience with hands-on labs - guided by a SolrCloud expert. 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 an expert in SolrCloud configuration, scaling, monitoring and tuning.
