Google Upgrades Enterprise Search Appliance
Google has released a new version of its search appliance for businesses with enhanced end-user features such as personalized alerts and results ranking.
The GB-7007 hardware-and-software bundle integrates storage hardware from Dell and features a self-contained search system for managing an organization's internal electronic files. It can index up to 10 million documents compared to the 2 million of its predecessor, GB-1001. The new version is available in five-box and 12-box rack versions.
The appliance allows administrators to manage data in 27 languages and deliver search results in 40 languages.
Prices start at $30,000 for an entry-level version that can index 500,000 documents, and includes two years of support, hardware replacement coverage, and software updates.
