Elsevier is also the company behind Scirus [scirus.com], the scientific search engine powered by Fast.
Fast's enterprise section has really been successfull in getting important prestigous customers. Seeing that it is in fact powered by the same core technology as the websearch product it's hard to believe they shouldn't be able to land another huge partnership for websearch.
