Apache Solr - definition(s)

Apache Solr - Apache Solr is an open source search platform built upon a Java library called Lucene.

Solr is a popular search platform for Web sites because it can index and search multiple sites and return recommendations for related content based on the search query’s taxonomy. Solr is also a popular search platform for enterprise search because it can be used to index and search documents and email attachments.
