Here’s an update on the great results from Microsoft’s acquisition of enterprise search developer FAST Search & Transfer last April. As you may recall, the plan was to bring together FAST’s deep search expertise with the widely used SharePoint Server platform technology. Today, Microsoft gave out some details on FAST Search for SharePoint, a new search server that will add the high-end search capabilities of FAST ESP to SharePoint.
Microsoft also announced ESP for SharePoint, a special offer available for SharePoint Enterprise Client Access License customers, allowing them to purchase FAST’s high-end search capabilities today with a defined licensing path to FAST Search for SharePoint when it’s released.
FAST Search for SharePoint will be available with the release of the next version of Microsoft Office.
