Google Mini Now Even More Mini
The hardware side of Google now offers a fourth configuration of its Google Mini search appliance with the lowest price tag yet.
Only $1,995 out of the Information Technology budget will enable a business to obtain a 50,000-document version of Google’s hardware search machine. The Google Mini has four configurations available now for installation on the corporate intranet.
The high-end configuration that can index 300,000 documents became available in January 2006. But Google saw a need to address the other side of the business market, as noted by InternetNews:
A single Google Mini can scale from the low-end of 50,000 to the more voluminous 300,000 document capability, simply by paying for an upgraded license. All versions include the first year of support; a second year of support that includes upgrades and hardware replacement would cost $995 according to Google.
