Subject Lucene vs RDBMS indexing at scale
Date Tue, 05 Feb 2013 22:09:39 GMT
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to figure out what would be a better approach to indexing when it comes to a large
number of records (say 1 billion).

As far as queries:
1. Only support exact matches (a field is equal to some constant value) or range matches (a
field is larger/smaller than some constant value) or a combination of both
2. NO need for full-text searching
3. Support for aggregate functions (sum, average, etc.)

Would it be better to use Lucene or an RDBMS to index the data? Are there any good reads on
this subject?
