Your private GoogleIn between the Internet (where search engines help you find the information you need) and the slightly smaller world of your own desktop (where, hopefully, you don't need help finding information), there lies a whole realm of knowledge that's often hard to access - that created by the combined data wells of your company. With the content of corporate intranets, databases, Weblogs, Web sites and so on growing exponentially, a company-specific search tool could come in very handy.

Enter the Google Search Appliance, from the makers of the search engine so famous it became a verb. The standard version of this combination of hardware and software will search through up to 500,000 documents in a single collection (other versions can index 15 million or more), while a scaled-down version, Google Mini, can search up to 100,000 documents; all promise to unleash the information scattered around your organization.
