Key Solr features

Easy accessibility

Interactive full-text search and faceted navigation lets users explore and analyze data in real-time to find what’s relevant and gain new insights.


Solr supports batch, real-time, and on-demand indexing (and reindexing) of data of any type so more users can get value from data, faster.

Industry standard

Full-featured search is built on Solr, the standard for search. A proven, rich API opens up big data to users for the fastest time-to-insight and an active, mature community means constant innovation with the enterprise in mind.

Integrated across the platform

As an integrated part of Cloudera’s platform, users can search using Solr, while also analyzing the same data using tools like Impala or Apache Spark — all within a single platform. It also benefits from simple deployment and administration (throughout Cloudera Manager) and shared compliance-ready security and governance (through Apache Sentry and Cloudera Navigator) — all critical for running in production.

Cloudera Search integrates, out-of-the-box, with the open source visualization interface, HUE, for simple, intuitive insights into data, immediately.
