Search Engine Hakia Opens Data Center

Google isn’t the only search engine opening data centers. Hakia recently announced that it has completed work on two data centers, one at 165 Halsey Street in Newark, N.J. and a second data center in Atlanta, Georgia. The announcemnts don’t provide details on the size of either facility.

New York-based Hakia was founded in 2004, and is one of a number of companies developing semantic approaches to search. Hakia says it has developed a “meaning-based search engine,” utilizing a new infrastructure designed to deliver the most relevant search results.

So is Hakia relevant? Certainly not if you’re searching for information on data centers, where a Hakia search gives the number two ranking to a five-year story from the Washington Post about data center market trends in Northern Virginia. Sorry, but if you’re looking for current trends in data centers, you may want more relevant info than analyses from 2002.
