Hi Phillip,
I'm interested in why you think that SOLR would be more scalable than FS for retrieving files.I
am not saying it isn't. For my use cases, it wouldn't be, but your case may be different.

Do you have any numbers / theories that make you think that would be the case? 

How big are the files you intend to store? What file types? how many queries / sec do you
expect to serve?
