This post is part of a series of posts on setting up your Sitecore application to run with Solr Cloud. We’ll be covering the procedure for setting up a Sitecore environment using the Solr search provider, and the creation of a 3-node Solr cloud cluster. This series is broken into four parts.
- Part 1 – Architecture
- Part 2 – Setting Up Zookeeper and Solr
- Part 3 – Creating Your Sitecore Collection
- Part 4 – Tuning Solr for Production
For the third part of this series, we will create our Sitecore collection, add replicas, and connect Sitecore to the collection. We’ll also go over load balancing the requests to distribute them among the Solr cloud nodes.
