The Google Search Appliance (GSA) provides a number of features to allow its deployment into a variety of architectures to meet diverse requirements for high-availability, throughput and content scale. This paper provides guidelines for using these architectural features as well as other supporting deployment components, to design an appropriate GSA solution architecture.
The recommendations and information in this document were gathered through our work with a variety of clients and environments in the field. We thank our customers and partners for sharing their experiences and insights.
