Google Search Appliance Aims to Be Your Site’s Universal Search

As I type this, it seems silly in a world dominated by Google. But “search” is hard, requiring a lot of resources. And yet, the ability to crawl, index, and retrieve data from sites – both internal and external, from behind the firewall and from the open internet – is crucial.

But today Google has announced Cloud Connect for the Google Search Appliance, promising to bring about a more comprehensive search tool for on-premise and cloud-based content, all from within a single search box.

Cloud Connect will display results from Google Docs and Google Sites alongside results from other repositories – files shares and content management systems. The tool will also provide searches from Twitter, blogs and industry websites. The improved search also adds a People Search function, improving the ability to find experts and co-workers associated with a particular search query.
