MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Google Inc. today announced a new edition of the Google Search Appliance, GSA 6.0, with architecture that indexes all of even the largest organization's content: limitless linking of appliances to create unparalleled enterprise search power.

The GSA 6.0 allows businesses to:

Scale to billions of docs simply - The new GSA can search not just thousands or millions, but billions of documents. With our dynamic scalability feature, you can easily connect multiple GSAs, whether in one location or many, while providing employees an an easy-to-navigate set of results that also unifies information across departments and data stores.

Customize across the board - GSA 6.0 comes with options to customize administrative, security and relevancy features. Ranking Framework, Node Biasing and Collection Biasing allow you to fine-tune search results to your needs. The new Administrative API provides more control for automation of common tasks, and GSA 6.0 now supports both early and late binding, so search results can be screened according to company security policies.

Achieve higher quality search results - Along with improved precision in the core algorithms, GSA 6.0 includes social search features, such as Query Suggestions and User-added Results, that aggregate knowledge across the organization for more precise search results . Additionally, cross-language enterprise search also enables enterprise users across the globe to translate their search results in real-time -- into whichever language they choose.
