Solr on Kubernetes

Enterprise applications have seen an evolution over the years in terms of deployments from bare metal to virtual machines (VMs) and now to containers. In our experience over the years, as we moved from bare metals to VMs to containers, we have experienced increased flexibility and cost optimization for a slight performance degradation as a trade-off.

Even though Docker is the most widely accepted technology for containerization, container orchestration was, until recently, an open problem. With Kubernetes finally winning the container orchestration wars, we have moved some of our Solr clusters to Kubernetes based infrastructure in production.

In this talk, we present our learnings about caveats & pitfalls in moving from VMs to Kubernetes in the following broad areas: (a) storage, (b) fault tolerance, (c) scaling, (d) network performance. Our talk would be followed up with a brief demo on using Solr on Kubernetes with scaling.
