Hi Guys,

take a look at the Google Search Appliance http://services.google.com/appliance/request_info

What I would like to know is how something like this works? As in how would I got about making a self contained device like this that has some sort of internal database and basic search function, so that it could just be plugged into a network somewhere and configured via a web interface?

Anyone know of some good guides on the web about this?

Thanks

Essentially what this box is, is an operating system and a search engine.

You could build somthing similar with a server running Windows 2K and IIS. Activate the Web interface onto indexing server and publish the searchable file system as virtual web folders.

It will be a little less automated but should do the trick assuming the server account has permissions to view and index the documents.
