Topic: Search from SharePoint to FAST
With the release of SharePoint 2010 and the integration of FAST Search into this platform, there are a number of questions about the use of this add on tool. To that end, Philip Helsel will give a brief look at where FAST came from and why Microsoft paid $1.2 billion to acquire them. He will then take a look at the bundled SharePoint search architecture and compare that to FAST search engine. He will end up comparing and contrast the features and functionality of the two search engines.
