What is the recommend SOLR architecture for a 180mil record dataset.

I have been asked to stand up a weighted search appliance for a company.  The decision was to use SOLR to create the search tool so they can use the associated REST API for searches and recommendations.

I'm am still beginning in SOLR and have to ask a basic architecture question.  I have a table with 220 elements, 130 Million record strong.  I grow 5 million a year.

Does this become a Hadoop solution?  or can this still be done with a single SOLR engine?  I need to know which direction to start with so I do this right

Thanks much.

Hi Evan,

A single SOLR engine..... depends on the time that is acceptable by you for getting the response.
Not the 130 Million records will be the problem, but more the access-paths that are(n't) available
(Views, Indexes or even a combination of them)
Afaik SOLR  has no record limit in processing (probably your client will have a timout problem for some requests.
