PBS and the Google Search Appliance
The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is a 34-year-old private nonprofit media enterprise, owned and operated by 349 U.S. public television stations. As with any site providing information that can change frequently, search is increasingly important to PBS. But budget constraints and earlier decisions had led the organization to rely on a freeware search application that was no longer up to the task of supporting millions of users. Using Google Search Appliance, PBS no longer worried about operating system compatibility to run the search engine, and software updates are included in the license.
