Harrod's Creek, KY (PRWEB) November 29, 2008
Stephen E. Arnold, online search expert, recently interviewed a Perfect Search Corp. (http://www.perfectsearchcorp.com/) representative about how the company hopes to "catch a ride" on Google's search wave.
Senior technologist Ken Ebert explained that Perfect Search will use its more than 30 years' experience in the search field, mixed with a new approach in a patent-protected process to carve out a niche in the search industry.
Ebert said Perfect Search technology, explained in depth at http://www.perfectsearchcorp.com/technology-benefits, provides a very economical single-server solution for customers who use the Google Search Appliance (GSA) to index files and documents and can add the capability of indexing large amounts of database information as well.
"Rather than compete...we are looking to augment and enhance the Google Search Appliance's capacity," Ebert said.
Perfect Search's software uses semantic technology and allows clients to index and search massive data sets with near real-time incremental indexing at high speeds without latency.
Ebert said the GSA's document licensing limits create cost-prohibitive situations restricting companies' ability to search all its compiled information. "This is because Google counts each record in a database as a document. For example, if a company wanted to use the GSA to index and query its database that had 300 million records, it would cost them over $10 million dollars," Ebert said.
Perfect Search's forthcoming product will be a GSA add-on to enhance the GSA search and capacity.
"As one example, we have a customer that has over 10,000 databases of both structured and unstructured content and over 1.2 billion records. We were able to provide them with an economical solution that allows them to query all of their records on a single server," Ebert explained.
These customers are Perfect Search's targets in 2009.
"Our very first market niche will be GSA customers who need to index and query large databases," Ebert said. He said the company will launch a second GSA add-on appliance to augment e-mail search later in 2009.
Perfect Search is hitching its wagon to Google because the search giant's brand, simplicity, and overall economic sense will draw customers. By offering to leverage Google's strengths, Perfect Search can benefit.
"Perfect Search delivers excellent content processing and query processing speed without the hardware imposing the often onerous server requirements needed to make certain data management systems usable," Arnold said in his analysis of the company's products.
Google isn't Perfect Search's only target for enhancement. Industry focus on mobile search has also drawn its attention. The company recently released a Microsoft Windows Mobile device search they believe is unique in the marketplace.
"We index and query all of the content stored locally on the mobile device, including the content of the memory card," Ebert said. "Both indexing and query processing are so fast, that very little computational demand is placed on the device, avoiding power-drain on the limited battery capacity."
According to Ebert, no major mobile manufacturer or OS provider offers an indexed search product, and some mobile platforms don't offer search at all. Perfect Search is in the process of adapting its mobile search to the iPhone, Symbian and Google Android platforms.
"We think our GSA add-on product is well positioned to piggy back on Google's success in this market, and we don't see Microsoft competing in this arena in the near future," Ebert said.
Perfect Search's key performance differentiator, whether on internal servers or mobile devices, is the ability to handle massive data sets and our speed.
"We have a current customer that has over one billion records of both structured and unstructured content that we have been able to search on a single low end server. This single server replaced seven servers that they were previously using for query processing."
Ebert said the company has also made improvements in the indexing process and query speed to offer large amounts of throughput per server. This significantly reduces the amount of hardware required to handle large query volume.
"If you are have large volumes of data to process and must deliver low latency response, you may want to take a close look at the Perfect Search system," Arnold said.
