Connecting Sitecore 9.1 with Apache Solr 7.2.1 for High Availability Environments

Your Sitecore website needs fast, reliable Solr search capabilities, with the fault-tolerant infrastructure that is required for high-speed service and disaster recovery. SearchStax Cloud hosts Solr 7.2.1 clusters that integrate with Sitecore 9.1.

Sitecore 9.1 and Solr 7.2.1 are the recommended versions for Sitecore/Solr integration. Here’s how SearchStax provides turnkey Solr clusters in a variety of sizes. A cluster has at least three nodes, any one of which can provide uninterrupted service all by itself. Each cluster is preconfigured with a load balancer and a Zookeeper ensemble that keeps the Solr indexes in sync across the nodes.

Integrating Sitecore with a Solr cluster requires several configuration steps. You can read a clear, step-by-step procedure on the SearchStax Documentation Center. The procedure covers editing your Sitecore configuration, setting up the eleven required Sitecore indexes, and populating the Solr index with fields appropriate to your data.
