The Zaval File Search solution is a local area network tool designed for fast file search on SMB and FTP shares.
It supports lots features like regular expression usage and search based on custom/predefined extensions.
It was designed to provide easy and powerful indexing and search facilities in corporate networks with SMB/MS/FTP
shares - try our Online demo to see what it is capable for. The similar technologies are MS Indexing Service, and Napster-like tools.
Unlike well-known solutions the Zaval File Search provide support for small and medium networks(for 300-500 computers
it works pretty fast) and it does not require any database.
The Zaval File Search spider provides possibilities to do regular network scan and create indexes.
Another part of the product - Zaval File Search client, provides fast, powerful and robust search facility over the
files have indexed.
Actually, this situation is a common one in big companies. When you need a document and you now
it is somewhere on the local network it can be a problem to locate it fast. Some companies have
their own home-made solutions that do the job, but they are not perfect and sometimes are hard
Everybody wants to have a local Google for this purpose, but nobody wants to pay for it too much.
Idealy, it should be light, fast, free and functional solution.
We have big experience in developing databases and search engines, so combined this with good knowledge
of perl, awk and some other tools, we are trying to develop lightweight solution for IT companies
that will be easy to use and support.
