Gigablast to Build the Biggest Search Engine



ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., July 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shortly after releasing its web search engine as open source and available for free download, Gigablast, Inc. has inked a deal with the Internet Archive. Gigablast has agreed to provide search for the archive's 400+ billion web documents. After conducting tests, the Internet Archive found that its users prefer the quality of Gigablast's search results over the leading open source search engine solutions.

"We're proud to work with the archive to help unleash its true potential. Right now you can't effectively search their hundreds of billions of documents. That's going to change," says Matt Wells, CEO of Gigablast. "We are providing them with the technical support to get Gigablast up and running. When we are done, they could be the biggest search engine ever created. They've tried the other search solutions out there and they can't scale anywhere close to Gigablast's levels. Gigablast is a proven, free solution that makes information discovery easy, and saves you time and money. It's a considerable alternative to SOLR or elasticsearch."  Wells continues, "On a further note, there has been some confusion that Gigablast was recently acquired by a company called Yippy. This is untrue. Gigablast is still a thriving independent entity and has no affiliation with Yippy, Inc."
