Google plans to release a newly architected version of its Search Appliance enterprise search device that can index more than three times as many documents as the current model. The new Search Appliance, model GB-7007, can index up to 10 million documents, up from the 3 million maximum capacity of the existing product, model GB-1001.
However, Google will continue to sell the GB-1001, since it can be clustered in configurations of either five or eight units, providing maximum capacity for up to 10 million or 30 million documents, respectively. The new GB-7007 can’t be clustered.
Those interested in purchasing the new Search Appliance can place orders already, but Google will begin to deliver the products next month.
