Well, we go live with our project very soon and we are now looking into what we will be doing for the next phase. One of the enhancements we would like to consider is an indexing platform to start building searches into our application.

Right now we are just using column families to index the information (different views based on what we want to find) however it is proving to be quite a task to keep the index views in sync with the data - although not a showstopper, it isn't something we want to be handling all the time especially since operations like deletions require changes to multiple column families.

I've heard of Solandra and Lucandra but I want to understand the experiences of people that may have used them or other suggestions.
