The Google Search Appliance

By Deane Barker on September 6, 2005

AnandTech Search goes Google: These guys provide a review of the Google Search Applicance, which is a box you can buy from Google(for three grand) to index your own site or your intranet.

What’s interesting is that they spend three of the four pages talking about the hardware (it’s a hardware-oriented site, after all), and how hard Google tries to prevent you from touching the hardware — there are no usable heads on the screws, they don’t give you the BIOS password, they cover up the CD-ROM drive, etc. Funny.



  1. Just wanted to note, you mention 3 grand, but it says $30k is the starting price tag.

    “Google Search Appliance starts at $30,000 to search up to 500,000 documents.”
