Search at Etsy poses significant challenges. Our marketplace is filled with millions of unique, short-lived items and people trying to find them over 13 million times a day. In this session we'll discuss many of the solutions we've engineered to meet these challenges including, the evolution of indexing at Etsy, how HBase and Hadoop have taken indexing from hours to minutes, how and why we use bittorrent for Solr replication, how we track search performance, our approach to shave crucial milliseconds off every search, and an overview of our continuous deployment strategy, web / search config integration and A/B testing and analytics.
