Hi Sam!

We have recently done a project with 17 million videos, where (fast) 
search was really important. After some research, we ended up with 
Apache Solr, which is really well supported in Perl. It's been a very 
robust and good solution for us. It's relatively simple to set up and 
well documented.

We've only heard praise of Lucene, from some of the big players which 
use it so we decided to give it a shot. It was worth it.

I really suggest you try it. If you need any help, feel free to contact me.
