Why is Disaster Recovery so hard when it comes to Solr?
Disaster recovery in a broad sense typically means having systems in place to perform automatic failover to a secondary cluster, and having those secondary systems synced with the very latest index data, and all the infrastructure required to handle that – there’s DNS changes and load balancers involved, for example. When you fail over to a backup, you don’t want your users searching data that is days or weeks old. You want that secondary system to have fresh data.Solr has seen widespread adoption throughout a variety of vertical markets, but the technical experts for Solr are not in great abundance. So when you combine the technical requirements of a highly-available, up to date secondary cluster or node, with a lack of widespread expertise, Solr Disaster Recovery is a challenging problem to solve.
