comment How to design a website with search capabilities?
I haven't edited the Wiki Entry, but Lucene is a fast, in memory searchable index that you create based on a larger slower database, or you can just create it as being its own database or in memory subset. This is especially useful if you wanted to bring back all music artists that start with the letter Mi. In MsSQL that would make a round trip to the db run the query and return a result. Because it's sitting in memory on the server it avoids the round trip call, but it needs to be replicated on all servers in your cluster depending on your setup, that's where Solr and ElasticSearch shine.
