Google has announced an upgraded suite of GSA Connectors for the Google Search Appliance (GSA)- including connectors to integrate offline company data with information stored in the cloud. GSA Connectors connect the GSA with content management systems and other repositories, so that users can find the information they are looking for in unified search results. With the upgraded Google Search Appliance Connectors, the connector framework is simplified so that it can search content stored across various databases. One of the featured GSA Connectors is for Salesforce, enabling the GSA can search content in Salesforce, providing sales, marketing, and customer support personnel access to the information they seek regularly. In addition, new updates and features have been made to the connectors for SharePoint, Livelink, FileNet, and Documentum. Specifically, the SharePoint connector supports batch authorization and multiple site collection, and has added 64-bit Windows support. Additionally, the Google Search Box can be implemented within SharePoint, which would be powered by the GSA, giving results from databases outside of the SharePoint system. Multiple connectors now support more recent versions of content systems, such as the Documentum v6.5, or the FileNet v4. www.google.com/enterprise/search/gsa.html
