An Event on Big Data and Cloud Computing

Anshum Gupta


SolrCloud and NoSQL

Submitted May 23, 2013

If Search in NoSQL, NoSQL in Search or either of them separately interest you, this session could be for you. I’ll talk about how NoSQL datastores have evolved and are trying to provide search, Solr is moving towards them as a potentially great ‘big-data’ store.


With both NoSQL and Search both trying to add features that have traditionally belonged to the others` domain, where are they both headed? Will one be victorious over the other or both finally provide a bridge to plug into the other?

I’ll speak about data stores and how does it compare to “Integrate search into a data store” vs “Doubling up a search engine as the datastore”.
