Solr and Cloud (1.5 day session)Overview

Solr and Cloud

 (1.5 day session)

Overview

After taking this course you will understand the differences and use-cases for Solr and SolrCloud, create Spatial Search and Function Queries, perform Document Grouping, configure and tune Query Spellchecking and Suggesters. During the second half of the source you will learn how to tune and scale Solr and SolrCloud etc

For whom

The course is designed for technical attendees of any knowledge level and is aimed at those who need to configure, tune and manage Solr and have only basic Solr knowledge. No prior Solr experience is required. Experience with Linux systems is not a must, but basic familiarity with running shell commands (e.g., using curl command) will be good
