    InfoLibrarian Search Appliance™ Scalability

    Increased computing power can be accomplished by adding appliances. The key characteristic of the InfoLibrarian™ scalable solution is that increased load requires only additional hardware, rather than extensive modification of the application. The scalability of InfoLibrarian™ allows users to: Expand performance by adding appliances to clusters as needed. Protect existing hardware investments and develop virtually unrestricted scalability options.

    Stacking Search Appliances

    InfoLibrarian™ is a highly componentized application, significant performance scalability can be easily and cost effectively achieved by dedicating multiple appliances to various roles. Under this scenario little or no configuration is required, allowing you to simply add as you grow.

    Load Balancing Technology

    InfoLibrarian’s™ load balancing allows a cluster of up to 32 individual appliances to appear as a single appliance. This advantage automatically distributes load among available appliances. Additionally, there is no single point of performance failure; if one appliance fails, the remaining appliances pick up the additional load. This results in reduced downtime (no downtime for maintenance), and higher fault tolerance, in addition to the overall performance gain.

  • InfoLibrarian Search Appliance™ Supported Documents

    Industry Standard Document Filters

    Document filters scan documents for text and properties. It also extracts chunks of values, which are properties of an entire document or of well-defined parts of a document. Once the document properties are filtered and indexed, they are available for querying

    Properties are extracted from documents by filters implemented for specific document types. The indexing-related processing of the Search Appliance takes one or more sets of distributed documents and produces indexed catalogs for those sets. The document sets can reside on the local host computer performing the indexing, or the documents can reside on a remote computer.

    To extend the power and capability of the Search Appliance, you can install many different additional Filters. These Filters allow the indexing of other file types. Some of the filters are free downloads. Others are offered from third-party developers and require either registration or licensing. You can even write your own!
