Shard Splitting in SolrCloud

It's been around two years since my last post and after this hiatus, I intend to be more regular at it.
I've been a part of a couple of organizations since then. After being a part of the small team that launched the first ever AWS Search Service, CloudSearch, I am back to the open source world.

I joined LucidWorks in Jan '13, the primary company backing and supporting the Apache Solr project. The last few months have been spent trying to absorb the changes that the Apache Lucene/Solr project went through over an year and a half, when I was busy with A9. I've also actively worked and contributed on the Shard Splitting feature (SOLR-3755) for SolrCloud, with Shalin Shekhar Mangar since then.
