Gaga over Google
Smart and simple, Google Search Appliance GB-1001 is a great findFollow @infoworld
The GB-1001 can also be configured to send automatic status updates to administrators via e-mail, a feature that I found useful in keeping track of the daily crawl of the site.
The only downside to the Google Search Appliance GB-1001is that it lacks an API, which is surprising because Google has been a pioneer in the Web services arena with its SOAP-based Google Web API. Many enterprises will neither need nor want API access to the appliance, but for those wanting to integrate search results into enterprise applications, this feature is notably missing. In a similar vein, API access to manipulate the search index on a per-URL basis would be useful.
Despite this shortcoming, the Google Search Appliance GB-1001 promised power, simplicity, and the quality search results you expect from Google and it more than delivered. With an API for the system, the Google Search Appliance would be close to perfection.
