Google introduced a new state-of-the-art technology "Google Mini" that is considered as a dynamic solution for modern organizations. With the Google Mini, it is possible to search across intranets, file servers, and business applications in a secure way. Employees' familiarity with Google's user interface from searching on Google.com will facilitate adoption in enterprise, and instant access to corporate information will make them more productive.
The Google Mini works with over 220 different file formats and its integration with existing security systems ensures that employees can only access information they are supposed to view.
The Mini comes in multiple versions. The most affordable Mini searches up to 50,000 documents for $1,995 including all hardware, software and a year of support. Additional versions search up to 100,000, 200,000 or 300,000 documents. Since upgrading is easy, the Mini is great for growing organizations.
