The Google Mini

By Derek Sooman on
Google will introduce the Google Mini, a hardware device for corporate-intranet search at an affordable price. Google hopes that the device will cater to smaller businesses with fewer documents and tighter budgets, being priced as it is at $5,000. This device, this is a blue box, plugs into a corporate intranet and searches up to 50,000 documents. The big brother of the device has been around since 2002 and searches 100,000 documents or more.

The Google Mini is in the sweet spot of the enterprise business because it will appeal to more companies with a need for search that are typically priced out of the market. With its latest upgrade, the company is also improving the technology to delve into and search specialized databases, such as Oracle.
