Searching through massive amounts of Data
 
Good evening,

The company that I work for has massive amounts on our file server and that amount continues to grow. What we are looking for is a search appliance that will make it easier to search all documents on the file server and also search the content of those documents. I don't really like the idea of everyone using an app like X1 and searching the share drives that way on their individual PC. I would like a search appliance. Any suggestions?

Google makes one, specifically for such a task.

You don't say anything about your environment, so it's hard to give any solutions. What kind of servers? What kind of data? What kind of workstations? How many users???

The servers we have are all CentOS 5.2. We have about 50 users who would need to access the information. There is a mix of Mac OS and Windows XP workstations.

Beagle will search the contents of documents. Kerry Beagle search is a google like interface. It is based on a Windows project which in turn is based on the Linux/Unix Apache project "Lucene".

You could look at namazu or htdig for such tasks,
and use a web-interface for the searches
