SharePoint Enterprise Search in SharePoint Server 2010
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010
Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 provides two SharePoint Enterprise Search options—SharePoint Server search and FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint—which are designed to share a common platform to enable search solution developers to use the same query-side interfaces. Developers can take advantage of the same object models, services, and a common query language instead of having to learn new APIs or programming models.
This section provides information about how to develop and deploy search solutions in SharePoint Server 2010.
