Subject Re: Multiple solr servers Vs Katta
Date Tue, 03 Aug 2010 03:54:06 GMT
This is nowhere near the volume of data where you would have to use
Katta. Katta has much more limited search and configuration features-
it is more a very distributed version of Lucene than a search server.
Solr has added a lot of features over and above Lucene.

To have 2 query servers for each index, we have 2*20*35gb/5 = 280gb of
index per server. This is a large Solr but many run much larger
systems. This should run fine on a server with 24-32G of ram and at
least 3 fast (10k SATA) disks in a raid.
