The Thunderstone Search Appliance is intended for organizations seeking the simplest possible software administration, but without giving up the security and performance of a locally hosted solution. It is a complete web-search or intranet-search solution ready to use as soon as plugged into a network. The Appliance is based on Thunderstone’s Texis software. The Thunderstone Appliance allows customers to create as many separate indexes as needed. Thus the administrator may give different groups of users access to content that is appropriate for each group. The Appliance indexes most document formats including HTML, PDF, and word processor files. The Thunderstone Appliance is also the only search solution that indexes JavaScript links and content. The Thunderstone Appliance also indexes Flash links and content. The Thunderstone Search Appliance may be integrated into an organization’s web sites by means of a simple HTML form added to any page. The appearance may be customized by adding an organization’s “look and feel” template, or by using XSLT.
