NetDocuments, a SaaS document management company, is migrating their large document repository from Microsoft FAST to Solr. During this presentation, the speakers will discuss the the entire process, including major decision points and lessons learned. The migration is a two-phase implementation: The first being a short-cut of moving the FAST xml data directly to Solr to get a Solr meta-data index available quickly and the second phase implements the full architecture, including both meta-data and full text processing and search. The presenters will talk about architecting Solr to meet the company's requirements of scaling to billions of work-product documents, low indexing latency, and high availability. NetDocuments uses the search engine to build the user experience and also for document discovery by users. Solr was architected to scale and perform in order to address these two very different needs and also to match all the features and functionality available with FAST. Finally, the presenters will share the benchmark results from tests run on various hardware configurations and on different file systems, and also share results from search quality testing as the capabilities of Solr were tested on a single server, both single Solr core as well as multiple Solr cores.
