Microsoft Corp. gains the right to distribute FAST Data Search for sales promotion, demonstration, and marketing purposes with Microsoft’s next-generation integrated solution platform for e-business that is designed to enable the rapid development of personalized sites and provide a highly scalable foundation for global e-commerce solutions.
Note: this is not about Fast websearch.
It's a further strengthening of Fast's business solutions branch. Fast has been one of the first companies to make a solution conform to the specifications of MS E-Commerce Server.
Press release [fast.no]
First of all I accidentially had linked to an old press release, where it just said FAST had met the specs - sorry for that.
If you read this new press release [fast.no] I think the matter clears up a little.
MS sells it's Microsoft Commerce Server 2002 and Microsoft Content Management Server 2001 to business customers. Part of this product is FAST software. It's a data mining solution, which very successfully works for huge companies already, like IBM, Reuters etc. In short. Fast provides the search architecture for those MS Commerce servers.
P.S... Our site is still getting most (I mean almost all) visitors from Google :) Good Google :)
