The Google Search Appliance starts at $30,000 and the Google Mini starts at $1,995. Both search appliances are covered by Google warranty and support services.
“Having the Google Search Appliance and Google Mini available from Dell bolsters our enterprise offerings and helps simplify the search engine process for our commercial and public customers,” said Terry Klein, Dell vice president, Americas Advanced Solutions Group. “Google’s turnkey search appliances align well with Dell’s priority to simplify information technology in the data center.”
