I’m the creator of Apache Solr and founder of Heliosearch, the company dedicated to development and support of Solr.

I’m also a former co-founder of LucidWorks (formerly Lucid Imagination), an Apache Lucene/Solr PMC member and committer, an Apache Software Foundation member, and author of various other little things such as , the fastest streaming JSON parser for Java.

Solr is a open source NoSQL search server. If you need a blazing fast search platform that provides tons of features such as faceted search (those category counts you see on all the shopping web pages), or highly scalable distributed search, check out Solr!
