Well, Solr is a text search engine, and a good one. But this sure
feels like a problem that RDBMSs were built to handle. Why do
you want to do this? Is your current performance a problem?
Are you blowing your space resources out of the water? Do you
want to distribute your app to places not connected to your RDBMS?
Is there too much traffic on your RDBMS machine?

Something about "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

In general, you have to tell us the problem you're trying to solve
so we don't go off into XY land.
