This presentation will discuss migration from FAST ESP to a Lucene Solr search platform. Illustrated through actual case studies, the presentation will include challenges and concerns, and present solutions and work-arounds to overcome migration issues. There are many reasons that an IT department with a large scale search installation would want to move from a proprietary platform to Lucene Solr. In the case of FAST Search, the company's purchase by Microsoft and discontinuation of the Linux platform has created an urgency for FAST users.
