Perfect Search OBX Helps Google Build a Better Database Search
Perfect Search Corp. and Adhere Solutions, a Google enterprise partner, teamed up to bring Perfect Search's database indexing solutions to the Google Search Appliance. The resulting One Box Extender (OBX) lets organizations search their database content through the Google appliance's OneBox interface.
Google Search Appliance users currently must send a query through the OneBox Connector to retrieve results from different systems, but OBX now offers users rapid search capabilities for Oracle, Microsoft SQL, DB2, MySQL, and any other SQL-compliant database without increasing the load on those systems. It also will integrate within the same search engine results page that the Google appliance's OneBox API uses for database searches.
OBX includes the following features:
- Integration of database search with Google
- Ability to index billions of database records
- Lower load on existing database systems
- Improved SQL query results
- Compliance with database security policies
