Google has introduced a new "search appliance," a pizza-box size unit that contains the full Google search functionality for internal networks and intranets. Designed to compete head-to-head with enterprise search tools offered by industry titans such as Verity and Inktomi, the Google appliance differs in that it's an integrated hardware/software product that needs comparatively little configuration to put into action. More details can be found via the articles below:

Gartner sees some appeal in Google's product, but not necessarily for business with sophisticated needs. And a quibble with this: "While Google provides standard keyword analysis and other ranking methods, its PageRank--which analyzes a page's prominence against others in a categorical search to determine which is most often referred and linked to--is less valuable in the structured design of business sites or intranets." Of course -- but that also suggests that Google's on-the-page ranking systems are somehow inferior to other people. That's not necessarily the case at all.
