Google has dived into the enterprise search market with the local launch of its Search Appliance and Mini devices.
The hardware-based products allow for the searching of information across company intranets, databases, business applications and public websites.
Google has also moved to create a new services-based offering around the products with the appointment of BearingPoint to build a Search Solutions Practice in A/NZ.
ChannelWorx has been appointed as the distributor for the range in the region.
The Google Search Appliance pricing begins at $74,486 and allows for searches within 500,000 documents.
The Google Mini starts at $4965 and allows for searches within 50,000 documents. Additional versions allow searches within 100,000, 200,000 or 300,000 documents.
Google claims its success in the enterprise market is on the rise with more 4000 customers worldwide at last count. Its global enterprise business doubled in the last year.
