One Box Extender
Perfect Search Corp. and Adhere Solutions have formed a partnership to deliver Perfect Search's database indexing solutions through the Google Search Appliance. The companies claim their One Box Extender (OBX) will extend the appliance to enable organizations to search their database content with searing query speeds seamlessly delivered though the Google Search Appliance's OneBox interface.
Perfect Search and Adhere Solutions explain that currently, Google Search Appliance users search their database content by sending the query through the OneBox Connector to retrieve results from different systems. They add that the OBX for the Google Search Appliance enables rapid search of Oracle, Microsoft SQL, DB2, MySQL, and any SQL-compliant database without placing any additional load on these systems. The OBX integrates within the same Search Engine Results Page for database searches through the Google Search Appliance's OneBox API.
The developers say One Box Extender can:
- index millions or even billions of database records,
- remove load on existing database systems,
- provide better results than traditional SQL queries, and
- comply with database security policies.
