InfraSearch (a.k.a. gonesilent.com) was acquired by Sun Microsystems in February to become part of Sun's JXTA (Juxtapose) project. InfraSearch, a technology prototype of a fully-distributed search engine, was orginally based on the Gnutella technology but has since been moved to a proprietary framework. Infrasearch was built by Gene Kan and other Gnutella developers, and the founding engineering team has roots in UC Berkeley's Experimental Computing Facility.
