EMCWORLD 2011LAS VEGASMay 10, 2011EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) today announced a new solution available for the Google Search Appliance (GSA) that improves time-to-information with on-the-fly indexing for content stored on EMC VNX storage systems. As customers continue to create massive amounts of contentit becomes critical that they are able to find it. The new solutiona connector within the EMC VNX unified storage systemenables the most current Intranet search results across these systems. Together, the two market leaders in information infrastructure and search are enabling employees to be more productive by ensuring the most up-to-date search results across EMC VNX storage systems.
The GSA is the fastest, easiest and most logical next step in an IT infrastructure to ensure users get to their information faster and increase employee productivity. With the new connector, customers can now achieve blazing fast and accurate VNX unified storage search results leveraging the GSA and EMC VNX unified storage, providing enterprises with:
- Dynamic, relevent and more up-to-date search results in EMC VNX unified storage environments.
- Faster indexing of targeted or specific content in VNX unified storage environmentsin minutes.
- More granular searching of informationfor example at the departmental or author level with support for GSA dynamic navigation.
- Advanced enterprise search features through the GSA including user added results, people search and Cloud Connect.
Every time an employee searches for content stored on VNX storage systemssuch as documents, spreadsheets, multi-media, and .pdf files, the GSA references its index to provide the search results. Leveraging the new connector, the VNX unified storage system will automatically publish a notification to the GSA to update the index when files change. The GSA then indexes the updated content and makes the search results readily available to users.
New integration between the GSA and EMC VNX unified storage automates event notifications anytime files change on VNX storage to the GSA, providing customers with:
- Assurance that any file changes to VNX unified storage contentincluding edits, creating copies or deleting fileswill prompt the VNX storage system to send notifications to the GSA.
