Search engine provider Inktomi yesterday signed a deal with British Telecom that permits the UK telco not only to host Inktomi's first European search cluster, but to resell Inktomi search engine facilities. Financial terms of the "strategic alliance" were not made public. Inktomi said it will deploy one or more search engine clusters at BT's Web hosting facilities and have the system up and running by the summer. The cluster will provide access to up to 40 million European Internet-based documents, and will be linked to the company's 110 million-document US search database. Inktomi will also provide a range of search services to both BT content sources and publishers, and other European and global customers, the company added. Users will be able to carry out country-specific searches and real-time translations as part of the search experience. Meanwhile, Inktomi's chairman, David Peterschmidt told attendees of a Goldman Sachs technology conference that the company will unveil what he dubbed "the first full-blooded approach for online shopping" before the end of June. The company has already licensed the contents of the Consumer's Digest product database to form the basis of a guide for online shoppers keen to find the best deal on the specific products they are looking for. Peterschmidt implied other databases may be licensed before the launch of the service. ®
