Digital Equipment Corp’s AltaVista Internet Software unit has released a Windows NT Server implementation of the corporate intranet version of its AltaVista search engine, reports ClieNT Server News. The AltaVista Search Intranet Private eXtension engine, first released in a version for Digital Unix, indexes the data on Web servers behind corporate firewalls. The engine crawls through every page on every Web server in a company’s network and indexes every word on those pages. DEC is still working on a version that will also be able to index word processing documents, presentation files, spreadsheets and electronic mail messages. Also under development is a software developers kit with an applications programming interface to enable database indexing. AltaVista PX licences are $16,000m for a 250-user licence, $6,000m for additional 250-user licence packs and $34,000 for an unlimited user licence.
