About Apache Solr
Apache Solr (pronounced "solar" and stands for Searching On Lucene w/ Replication) is a free, open-source search engine based on the Apache Lucene library. An Apache Lucene subproject, it has been available since 2004 and is one of the most popular search engines available today worldwide. Solr, however, is more than a search engine — it’s also often used as a document-based NoSQL database with transactional support that can be used for storage purposes and even a key-value store.
Written in Java, Solr has RESTful XML/HTTP and JSON APIs and client libraries for many programming languages such as Java, Phyton, Ruby, C#, PHP, and many more being used to build search-based and big data analytics applications for websites, databases, files, etc.
Solr takes in structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data from various sources, stores and indexes it, and makes it available for search in near real-time. Solr is also used for its analytical capabilities as well, enabling you to do faceted product search, log/security event aggregation, social media analysis, and so on.
