Brightplanet will host content for all Deep Web Silos or install the Silo at the customer's facility.
Multiple Uses
Deep Web Silo usages vary by customer. Some customers may want a simple enterprise search interface to easily leverage
harvested Web content. Some may choose to integrate the Silo with proprietary content to offer an even richer analytic
opportunity. Still others may need hrther enriched content to rune or train analytic technologies on a topic-specific
