What are the key differences in unsing hdp-search over solr?

Expert Contributor

When I think of managing my stack from Ambari, then hdp-search makes that much more sense, but what am I loosing out on? Are there any limitations for me in using hdp-search over solr.

You are not missing any thing. Starting HDP 2.5, Ambari supports managing HDP-Search from Ambari making it easier to manage. Before that, it was not managed by Ambari.

HDP-Search under the hood is SOLR version 5.5.2 and Banana 1.6.0

Thank you!

Just to add to the previous reply, the version of Solr in HDP Search is *exactly* the same as the same version downloaded direct from the Apache Solr project.

Besides Solr, the benefits of the package are the connectors for indexing from HDFS, Hive, Pig, HBase, plus Storm and Spark development kits, and the Ambari integration.
