Summary

Solr offers many knobs and levers for increasing performance; the biggest challenge can be figuring out which knobs and levers to use! Make sure you budget time to try a number of approaches, and take a stepwise approach to trying different approaches out. From turning the simpler knobs for enhancing the performance of a single server, to pulling the big levers of scaling horizontally through replication and sharding, performance and scalability with appropriate hardware are issues that can be solved fairly easily. Moreover, for those projects where truly massive search infrastructure is required, the ability to shard over multiple servers and then delegate to multiple slaves provides an almost linear scalability capacity.
