Twitter Says Search is Now 3x Faster [engineering.twitter.com]
In the spring of 2010, the search team at Twitter started to rewrite our search engine in order to serve our ever-growing traffic, improve the end-user latency and availability of our service, and enable rapid development of new search features. As part of the effort, we launched a new real-time search engine, changing our back-end from MySQL to a real-time version of Lucene. Last week, we launched a replacement for our Ruby-on-Rails front-end: a Java server we call Blender. We are pleased to announce that this change has produced a 3x drop in search latencies and will enable us to rapidly iterate on search features in the coming months.
