FAST has had a relationship with Dell for a long time.

Dell servers power AllTheWeb.

"The FAST Search architecture is based exclusively on high-performance Dell® PowerEdge® servers and Dell PowerVault® storage subsystems. These systems operate in parallel with each other to distribute user queries, search the document catalog, and spider the Web through dedicated computing and storage nodes."

automatic spell checking and search keywords highlighted in all results descriptions

Not currently turned on at ATW.

Dell’s Web site, ..., receives approximately one billion page requests per quarter.
