Google Search Appliance
Google.com puts the Internet's wealth of information at your fingertips. The Google Search Appliance does the same for all your corporate information. The Google Search Appliance is an integrated hardware and software product designed to give businesses the productivity-enhancing power of Google search. It's a corporate search solution as simple, powerful and comprehensive as Google itself. The latest version includes improved relevance, access to more content and enhanced security options.
What it does The Google Search Appliance makes the sea of lost and misplaced data on your web servers, file servers, content management systems, relational databases and business applications instantly available from a single familiar search box. Through an interface as simple and intuitive as Google.com, your employees will have instant, real-time secure access to all the information and knowledge across your entire enterprise – in more than 220 different file formats, and in over 109 different languages.
With the Google OneBox for Enterprise feature, your employees can now also access information from all your business applications -- including employee directory and calendaring, CRM, ERP and business intelligence. Learn more about the Google OneBox for Enterprise feature.
How it works The Google Search Appliance crawls your content and creates a master index of documents that's ready for instant retrieval using Google's search technology, whenever a customer or employee types in a search query. The Google Search Appliance can index millions of documents, and its security features ensure that users can only access the information that they have permission to view. The Google Search Appliance is easy to set up and requires minimal ongoing administration, making it extremely cost-effective. The Google Search Appliance starts at $30,000 to search up to 500,000 documents

While the Mini is capable of searching 300,000 documents, the Search Appliance can search up to 30 million. The Google Search Appliance starts at $30,000, whereas the Mini starts at $1,995.
