I don't know how far regex matching is with solr these days. This
implementation is AFAIK based on [1]. But then the tool exists and would need
to be thrown away completely for no obvious gain. How would you store the solr
index? How would lookups be faster than a custom built index where it's
basically known how many seeks you need per request?

It's akin asking you to port everything to Chef just for the sake of it,
except that the target language would actually be Java, which likely
consumes even more resources than the Go binary.

Michael was never opposed to sharding. HDFS is apparently a high-throughput FS,
so not particularly suitable for random access if you try to avoid SSDs at all
cost anyway.

Kind regards
