As we countdown to the annual Lucene/Solr Revolution conference in Austin this October , we’re highlighting talks and sessions from past conferences. Today, we’re highlighting Michael Busch’s session session on how Twitter executes real-time search with Apache Lucene.

Twitter’s search engine serves billions of queries per day from different Lucene indexes, while appending more than hundreds of millions of tweets per day in real time. This session will give an overview of Twitter’s search architecture and recent changes and improvements that have been made. It will focus on the usage of Lucene and the modifications that have been made to it to support Twitter’s unique performance requirements.

Michael Busch is architect in Twitter’s Search & Content organization. He designed and implemented Twitter’s current search index, which is based on Apache Lucene and optimized for realtime search. Prior to Twitter Michael worked at IBM on search and eDiscovery applications. Michael is Lucene committer and Apache member for many years.
