MS Search Server 2008 Part 2 - Versions

There will be 2 versions of MS Search Server 2008 :

MS Search Server 2008 Express (MSSX)

  • This is the FREE version
  • Supports only standalone installations (SQL Server (express) and SharePoint on 1 Server). This version is NOT scalable or ment for high availability.

MS Search Server 2008 (MSS)

  • This version is scalable over multiple servers like the Moss 2007 version
  • This version is not free but the good news is that MS has announced to go for a License per server instead of per user licenses.

These are the only differences between the two versions, isn't that easy?

My next post will discuss the improvements of the product !
