Azaleos Eases Configuration for Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010
Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 prides itself on delivering an exceptional intranet and people search experience and a platform for building custom search-driven applications. However, that doesn’t mean it’s easy to configure. Thanks to Azaleos, now it can be.

Managing SharePoint Search

Azaleos, known for its managed messaging, collaboration and unified communications services, announced Azaleos Managed Enterprise Search, an addition to its Managed SharePoint Services portfolio.

Azaleos Managed Enterprise Search provides enterprises the ability to extend their Azaleos SharePoint private cloud infrastructure with FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. With remote architecture design, configuration and day-to-day monitoring and management for FAST Search Server 2010, Azaleos has made it possible for users to integrate with SharePoint as well as other enterprise data repositories.

Search, Discover & Innovate (Not Maintain)

With its interactive, visual search experience, Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint’s visual cues help people find information quickly, while letting them drill down into the results and discover insights. It also brings considerable complexity. Azaleos Managed Enterprise Search masks the administrative challenges required to keep this high-visibility application available and operating at peak performance around the clock. 

Learning Opportunities

But it’s not just helpful for those in charge of configuring FAST; it also gives knowledge workers the ability to locate information and people both within SharePoint and across the enterprise. And isn’t that what search is all about, anyway?

No matter which Azaleos Managed SharePoint private cloud service you’re using (Azaleos SharePoint Starter Edition, Azaleos SharePoint Core Edition, Azaleos SharePoint Premier Edition), each is able to connect with Azaleos Managed Enterprise Search and can benefit from a variety of storage options and scalability.  Azaleos Managed Enterprise Search Service is available now for US$ 1,000 per month.
