Google reduces price, increases capacity of search appliance
Google Inc. is making changes in price and capacity on the Google Mini, its smaller search appliance. With twice the search capacity the Google Mini can now search up to 100,000 documents within an organisation for a lower price of US$2,995.

The Google Mini is an integrated hardware/software search appliance that indexes all content within a company's intranet or public website. After an installation process that takes only a matter of hours, users can search for information just as they do with Google.com. The device was launched in January 2005, as a smaller version of Google Search Appliance, which has a larger capacity - and price.

The entry-level Google Search Appliance now offers search of up to 500,000 documents (more than three times the previous search capacity), for US$30,000 including hardware, software, and two years of customer support. Other versions of the Search Appliance can index 15 million documents or more in a single collection.

Google says that since its announcement the Google Mini is being used by law firms, healthcare organizations, educational institutions, consulting firms, government agencies and other small-to-medium sized businesses to access and manage their information.

"Content is dramatically increasing everywhere and it's no longer limited to documents, spreadsheets and presentations," said Dave Girouard, general manager of Google's enterprise business. "With more web pages, weblogs, wikis and other content, businesses of every size are having a hard time keeping track of it all. With Google, you can help your customers and employees quickly find the information they need."

The Google Mini comes with one year of support, software updates, and hardware replacement coverage. It can be purchased online, directly from the Google Store with a credit card, check or purchase order.
