Improve Retrieval in Riak is awesome at storing data (not so easy to query it). MapReduce can be resource intensive (also, you have to write code). 2i is limited, resource issues.Efficiently query nontrivial amounts of data.
Riak Search Lessons Learned Lessons LearnedPretends to be lucene/solr (but it ain’t).Lack of analyzer/language/feature support. Poor performance on certain queries.Poor anti-entropy (indexes can corrupt). Basho isn’t a “search company”.
Solr is Better Excellent analyzer/language supportFeatures: ranking, faceting, highlighting, geo, etc. Built upon Lucene Actively developed, built search innovators
By Our Powers CombinedRiak: HA, distributed,scale out/inSolr: efficient index,features people want,known entitySolr scales with RiakMake Riak searchable with Solr
