Exalead extends enterprise search platform

Exalead has announced Version 4.0 of its enterprise search platform, which is said to deliver performance improvements, new semantic technologies to improve multilingual search results, greater flexibility and new customization capabilities.

The company emphasizes the following features:

Performance enhancements--Indexing and search performance has been increased by a factor of three for large document collections (up to 200 million documents on a single server).

New integration with exalead one:desktop--Combined with other Exalead products, users are offered a unified view of information whether it resides on one's PC, company intranet or the Web.

Enhanced configurability--Exalead has implemented a new HTTP crawler configuration tool to allow administrators to have a better control of the crawler's behavior.

Tighter security--A refined security infrastructure allows for a finer-grained control of the access control list of any document, including Windows or Unix files, Lotus Notes items, database entries and even HTML pages.

Increased flexibility--Improved support for custom style sheets allows administrators to more easily customize the Exalead user interface and take full control of the style and layout.

Support for more industry standards--Exalead's software products and user interfaces now include support for W3C specifications, including the W3C WAI (Web accessibility initiative).

Real-time filtering technology--Exalead technology provides a unified, integrated tool that can be used for lexical, grammatical, structural (XML-based) and business rules-based filtering.

Advanced semantic technologies--Exalead offers named entity recognition (people, places, dates, currency); thesaurus integration; a full-fledged document categorization module; and a new open architecture for integrating third-party semantic indexing technologies.

Advanced query capabilities and linguistics--Version 4.0 offers spelling suggestion, phonetic and proximity search, fuzzy matching, word-stemming, multilanguage search, automatic phrase detection, automatic translation, regular expressions and more.

Extended multilingual support--Exalead now natively supports more than 49 languages, including Chinese, Japanese and other Asian languages.

Easier configuration--The point-and-click configuration user interface has an expert mode and rapid application development for complex applications. The configuration module is also fully remote-controllable via Web Services APIs.
