SolrCloud provides fault-tolerant distributed search capabilities using Apache Solr. SolrCloud supports all types of distributed search configurations. It also has in-built load balancing capabilities that optimize effective load on all the nodes participating in SolrCloud. With the simplest configuration of all, the cloud can be set up.
A collection in Solr is a combination of one or more indexes spanning one or more cores of Apache Solr.
SolrCloud lets you create a cluster of Solr nodes, each of them running one or more collections. A collection holds one or more shards which are hosted on one or more (in case of replication) nodes.
