Fabasoft Mindbreeze Search Appliance

November 19, 2010

Austria’s Fabasoft Mindbreeze – a Microsoft centric development and integration vendor — has rolled out an appliance that offers users the opportunity to customize their configuration in order to meet the specific needs of the organization.

This Appliance combines hardware with specialized software to create a highly efficient search platform. In their blog post “Three Configurations for Dynamic Scalability and Deployment” (http://blog.mindbreeze.com/blog-en/-/blogs/three-configurations-for-dynamic-scalability-and-deployment) Fabasoft Mindbreeze outlines the various ways their Appliance can be used. The first level is a single Appliance, for small-scale enterprise environments; the second level involves adding additional Appliances and utilizing automatic data partitioning; and the third level involves multiple Appliances and index replication. It remains to be seen whether this type of set-up will be seen as beneficial by end users.

Many companies are offering appliances and the market is getting crowded. Some vendors, such as Exalead have moved towards cloud alternatives. The Fabasoft Mindbreeze Appliance will have to compete with EPI Thunderstone, Index Engines, and the Google Search Appliance and prove that this Appliance performs where others can’t.

    Thanks for discussing our blog article.

    I just want to add that Fabasoft has a cloud offering as well which is called Fabasoft Folio Cloud (http://www.foliocloud.com/).

    Behind the scenes we use Fabasoft Mindbreeze Appliances (powered by a Linux OS) for all the search centric parts there (http://www.mindbreeze.com/products/appliance/overview).

    Give Fabasoft Folio Cloud a try at and test our search capabilities there as well: http://www.foliocloud.com/ and https://folio.fabasoft.com/search.

    By the way “Fabasoft Folio Cloud primo” is free.

    Looking forward getting your feedback.

    Best regards,
