Migration from FAST ESP to Lucene Solr, by Michael McIntosh, VP, Enterprise Search Technologies, TNR Global

Migration from FAST ESP to Lucene Solr (PDF) (pdf:4,067,091)
presented by Michael McIntosh, VP, Enterprise Search Technologies, TNR Global at the Lucene Revolution Conference in Boston, MA.
There are many reasons that an IT department with a large scale search installation would want to move from a proprietary platform to Lucene Solr. In the case of FAST Search, the company’s purchase by Microsoft and discontinuation of the Linux platform has created an urgency for FAST users.
This presentation compares Lucene/Solr to FAST ESP on a feature basis, and as applied to an enterprise search installation. We explore how various advanced features of commercial enterprise search platforms can be implemented as added functions for Lucene/Solr. Actual cases are presented describing how to map the various functions between systems.
