Imagining a new search experience
When building platform that will
be heavily used over the web, like search engine, there are many things that one has to
be careful about. Ensuring the platform can not only scale, but can in a efficient, quick
& cost effective manner is critical.
Disrupting the user for even
split of mini-second is out of question.
Working on such platform, does one encounter problem in a more magnified way. For example, coming up with a intelligent deployment strategy become all of sudden, one the most critical point.
Ensuring that the system does not
have single point of failure, is essential. Securing customer is always a concern,
however, for public facing platforms like these, it takes a more central stage.
From a pure coding and Architectural standpoint, a bad design pattern or bad programming practice can quickly deteriorate the product, and make the project unmaintainable.
Then there is the challenge of Using the tools ( Apache Solr, Natural Language Processing, Scaleable configuration and Multiple Deployment on several domains) themselves in a way that previously has not been explored and there is little help available, as you are building things, which are not commonplace.
