ZooKeeper is an open source Apache™ project which provides a centralized infrastructure and services that enable synchronization across a cluster. ZooKeeper maintains common objects needed in large cluster environments. Examples of these objects include configuration information, hierarchical naming space, and so on. Applications can leverage these services to coordinate distributed processing across large clusters.
Following services provided by Apache ZooKeeper makes it compatible with Apache Solr to provide benefits in the distributed computing environment.
