Google Search Appliance Now Being Sold in Japan

Google’s enterprise search technology (aka Google Search Appliance) is now available in Japan via a reseller according to an IDG News Service article.

The system will be offered in Japan through reseller Mitsui & Co. Ltd. and will cost around ¥6 million (US$56,216) for the GB-1001 model, said Kaori Saito, a spokeswoman for Google’s Japanese unit…The price is about double that of the unit in the U.S., where it costs $30,000. The higher price includes software licensing fees and services including network integration, setting and maintenance, said Norio Kozuka [cq], a spokesman for Mitsui. Such services are often requested by Japanese clients, he said.
