Keynote Panel: Building and Running Solr at Scale
Panelists will discuss what it takes to run Solr at scale for their business, including deployment tradeoffs (on-prem versus cloud), how to build a team to support Solr at scale, and developer success and how to stoke app development. They'll also share tricks of the trade including plug-ins, connectors, and integration points, as well as dreams for the future of Solr and how to measure success.
The audience will leave with an understanding of how to successfully set up a team to deploy, monitor and run a large-scale Solr stack and how to make it useful to the broadest possible audience.
