Subject Re: Poll: SolrCloud vs. Master-Slave usage
Date Fri, 01 Mar 2013 01:22:33 GMT
I don't know a ton about SolrCloud but for our setup and my limited
understanding of it is that you start to bleed operational and
non-operational aspects together which I am not comfortable doing (i.e.
software load balancing). Also adding ZooKeeper to the mix is yet another
thing to install, setup, monitor, maintain etc which doesn't add any value
above and beyond what we have setup already.

For example, we have a hardware load balancer that can do the actual load
balancing of requests among the slaves and taking slaves in and out of
rotation either on demand or if it's down. We've placed a virtual IP on top
of our multiple masters so that we have redundancy there. While we have
multiple cores, the data volume is large enough to fit on one node so we
aren't at the data volume necessary for sharding our indices. I suspect
that if we had a sufficiently large dataset that couldn't fit on one box
SolrCloud is perfect but when you can fit on one box, why add more

Please correct me if I'm wrong for I'd like to better understand this!
