New Google Search Appliance Makes Its Debut
Google announced the latest edition of the Google Search Appliance-GSA 6.0-which is designed to deliver a new architecture centered around effortless scale, powerful customization, and higher-quality search results to all organizations (www.google.com/gsa). The new GSA 6.0 provides businesses with the following features:
- Scale to billions of docs-With its new dynamic scalability, users can easily connect multiple GSAs, to scale to large document counts, or search data across departments and geographies, while providing employees a unified, easy-to-navigate set of results.
- Customize across the board-Customizable administrative, security, and relevancy features allow users to fine-tune search results and provide more control to automate common tasks. GSA 6.0 also enables flexible security policies, allowing users to customize to their needs.
- Achieve higher-quality search results-Social search features aggregate knowledge across the organization for more precise search results, while multilingual features such as Language Bundles and Cross-Language Enterprise Search enable users in all languages to achieve better search results.
- Upgraded platforms-Google now offers two powerful hardware platforms to new customers. The GB-7007 will support all license counts up to 10 million documents and delivers three times the computing power of the previous GB-1001. The GB-9009 searches up to 30 million documents out of the box and can scale to search billions of documents.
"With the GSA 6.0, it's easy for companies to give all employees the powerful Google search experience inside their business-even if they are searching among billions of documents in dispersed intranets, data stores, languages or geographies," said Dave Girouard, president of Google Enterprise. "With the improved architecture and software for the search appliance, global businesses can provide secure search across the largest enterprise content repositories-with one GSA system that can scale to billions of documents without limits."
