JCVI Metagenomics Reports (METAREP) is an open source web application designed to help scientists analyze and compare annotated metagenomics data sets. It utilizes Solr/Lucene to quickly query large data collections. The web logic is implemented using the CAKEPHP framework. Index files are served by two load balanced Dell Power Edge R710 servers each having 8 cores (2.66 GHz), 72G RAM. Currently, we have indexed 68 million documents distributed over 330 index files.  The following was a presentation from Lucene Revolution 2010.  Click here for the details about next week's Lucene Revolution 2011.
