The following is the announcement written by Perfect Search Corporation:
Orem, Utah - October 12, 2009 -- Perfect Search Corporation (http://www.PerfectSearchCorp.com) announces today that OneGreatFamily.com has contracted to install the Perfect Search Database Search Appliance for Oracle to search the more than 200 million names submitted to OneGreatFamily.com that are stored within their Oracle database. At www.OneGreatFamily.com, users enter names, dates, and facts about their family tree. The site compares this information against its details for more than 200 million names already published in other family trees - and it continues searching as hundreds of thousands of new names are added each week. When exact matches of information are found, the trees are automatically merged.
Alan Eaton, CEO of OneGreatFamily.com, said, "The number of searches and matches that we perform is staggering. In fact, OneGreatFamily.com (http://www.OneGreatFamily.com) makes more than 18.8 TRILLION comparisons of family information per week! As the amount of data increases, our demands on our infrastructure grow as well. We expect the tools we'll be implementing from Perfect Search to greatly increase our searching capability, to improve our ability to index and search hundreds of millions of names in our Oracle database, and to accelerate the process of getting results."
"We are honored to be able to provide search for such a wonderful, mission driven company," states Tim Stay, CEO of Perfect Search. "Our Database Search Appliance for Oracle is specially designed to search across all the fields within an Oracle database, including text content, and to provide blistering indexing and query speeds. We anticipate that we will provide this powerful search functionality to OneGreatFamily.com as they continue their rapid data growth."
Ken Ebert, CTO of Perfect Search, states,"Companies that have massive amounts of data struggle to index and search these large content repositories in a timely, cost-effective manner. We are able to search over a billion records on a single Database Search Appliance. We are excited to be able to be involved in the important work of genealogy and be associated with such a visionary company as OneGreatFamily.com."
