Exalead finally launches

Exalead has launched (as in: it's still in beta but the index has grown significantly). Finally someone (Francois Bourdoncle) is bringing something new (per-request clustering) to the arena. It's not totally new, as IIRC Francois had implemented this for Altavista back in the days (it was called Cow-9).

Make yourself a favor - switch away from the GOOG for a week, see what the world looks like elsewhere.
