The Parallel Document Retrieval Engine (PADRE) has previously demonstrated that full text scanning methods supported by parallel hardware permit powerful query constructors and rapid response to changing document collections. Extensions to PADRE have been designed and implemented which make use of parallel secondary storage to allow each processing node to handle data up to 32 times the size of its primary memory.
