Fast & Scalable Email System with Apache Solr – Strategies, Tradeoffs and Optimizations – Arnon Yogev
Email interaction has its unique characteristics and is different than traditional web search (for example in that users search their own private mailboxes and are often interested in recent emails rather than the archive).
Taking advantage of these characteristics, we were able to optimize our infrastructure in terms of indexing strategy and query optimization and achieve a significant gain in scalability and performance.
Arnon will present the various tradeoffs that were explored, including multi-tiered indexes, sorted indexes, query optimizations and more.
Arnon will then present the benchmark results that stress the importance of correctly designing a Solr infrastructure and tailoring it to oneäó»s specific use case.
