New Google Search Appliance Goes “From Cloud To Ground”

Google is introducing what it calls “Cloud Connect” for its enterprise Google Search Appliance. The new functionality “lets workers search across both on-premise and cloud-based content from a single search box, delivering more comprehensive results and improving productivity.”

Accordingly the new “Cloud Connect” brings together Google Docs/Apps with web content and other internal company documents. Google said that it now has 3 million businesses using Google Apps.

Google also says that it has improved navigation with the latest release:

Our new Dynamic Navigation feature allows users to drill down into search results based on search modifiers for their queries, and Active-Active Mirroring improves reliability by spreading search traffic across multiple boxes. Dynamic Navigation was a top user request and we’re glad to be able to add it.

Google added that GSA now supports Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 content.

Overall the new functionality is designed to be comprehensive and bring internal, cloud and external web and cloud content together in a single searchable interface.
