Currently we use Verity as our searching software for external and internal sites. We have found that it is not cost effective nor a very good tool...

does anyone have any other solutions that arent going to cripple our budget?

This is a concern I currently have as well -- though we don't use Verity. I've been looking into the Google Search Appliance [google.com] but I haven't found many independent reviews which gave me much insight into the matter. I posted on here about a month or two ago but never received any feedback about them.

Here's a bit from Google about the Search Appliance Mini (the one I am considering):

The Mini comes in multiple versions. The most affordable Mini searches up to 50,000 documents for $2,990 including all hardware, software and two years of support. Additional versions search up to 100,000, 200,000 or 300,000 documents. Since upgrading is easy, the Mini is great for growing organizations.

Which hardware/services are you considering?
