We just got a brand new 1U blue boxed Google Mini for full text indexing of a new database we are setting up. It took about an hour to get it out of the box, install and index our content set (although we are doing some extra work fixing up our search result templates and scripts to make the output real nice and pretty).
And a few Google Mini notes: The Google Mini is very easy to install – open box, turn on, set IP addresses, select URL to index, click mouse, check indexing status. If you want your own machine with Google search software to index 100,000 documents for only $2999… visit the Google Mini Site… and be sure to read the Google Mini Legal Services Success Stories or other industry Google Mini success stories. We hope to be one ourselves some day 🙂
Peace – Tim & Sheba
