Google upgrades Search Appliance with bigger index, added enterprise features

Google upgrades Search Appliance with bigger index, added enterprise features

Google on Wednesday announced a new version of its enterprise-oriented Google Search Appliance that the company said can index up to 10 million documents in a single box — up from 3 million previously — while also giving IT managers more control over the search results that end users see.

For instance, the new version lets IT admins set pages with certain metadata, such as a particular author's name, to show up higher in search results. Or they can bias results so that engineers get pages that have particular keywords or come from certain data repositories, while marketers typing in the exact same search terms see different results, according to Nitin Mangtani, Google's lead product manager for enterprise search.
