Subject Solr hardware memory question
Date Tue, 10 Dec 2013 16:51:28 GMT
We're probably going to be building a Solr service to handle a dataset
of ~60TB, which for our data and schema typically gives a Solr index
size of 1/10th - i.e., 6TB. Given there's a general rule about the
amount of hardware memory required should exceed the size of the Solr
index (exceed to also allow for the operating system etc.), how have
people handled this situation? Do I really need, for example, 12 servers
with 512GB RAM, or are there other techniques to handling this?


Many thanks in advance for any general/conceptual/specific
