We’ll be looking at three elephants today

Elephant number 2: The semi- and unstructured enterprise database
The ’Leach’ Architecture

Apps

☺

Good architecture for federated search in several heterogeneous sources Not ideal for indexing large enterprise data repositories
Storage needs grow at 3.5X ’Leaching’ makes real real-time index updates difficult and resource intensive Security Architecture needs to be replicated in the search system

File Server API

Index Mail Server

Proprietary File System Intranet Server

Elephant number 2: The semi- and unstructured enterprise database
The ’Plug-In’ Architecture

☺
Apps

Good architecture for indexing large enterprise repositories

☺ Plug-In runs natively in database and pushes
updates to the Index in real real-time ☺ Two-level indexing ensures optimal search performance during indexing

SQL repository
Speed Plug-In API: SQL

☺ Securiy Architecture is not ’short-circuited’
Requires enterprise SQL database Storage overhead is still 1.8X

Speed Index Server
