2/17/2016: ARTEC IT Solutions Starts Switchover Campaign for Users Using the Discontinued Google Search Appliance
Several media outlets have reported that Google will phase out its Search Appliance and is offering no successor based on physical hardware. ARTEC IT Solutions is now offering a switchover campaign so that resellers and value-added distributors can provide affected customers with a suitable alternative. Customers switching to one of ARTEC's information management appliances can benefit from exclusive discounts on regular prices as part of the switchover campaign. The campaign will last until the end of 2016. The exact discount depends on the chosen appliance. Resellers and value-added distributors can contact ARTEC to obtain further information.
Experts expect that Google Search Appliance will be replaced with a cloud solution. We expect that few companies in Europe will want to switch to such a solution due to privacy concerns. Our appliances provide companies and organizations with a powerful internal search engine for all kinds of content, and ensure that all data remains inside the local network. As an additional benefit, our appliances provide a way to create an additional backup without requiring external access or storage of data on third-party systems in foreign countries. We encourage all of our resellers and value-added distributors to reach out to their customers and to take advantage of this one-time campaign.
