MS Search Server 2008 Part 3 - Product Improvements

What are the product improvements?

Easy installation, you can install the search server in +/- 35 minutes depending on the type of installation. The installer installs automaticaly Windows Server 2003 SP1, .NET Framework 3.0 and configures your IIS to allow the ASP.NET Role as you can see in the screenshot below.

Better User Interface for management, SharePoint 2003 had, in my opinion, a bad interface for configuring search, the Moss 2007 is much better but the interface for the MS Search Server 2008 is even better! (see screenshot below)

The product has also some performance and stability enchancements for the search functionality.

The number of documents is UNLIMMITED! It now only depends on the performance of your hardware and server setup.

In my next post i will discuss when to use Moss 2007 and when to use MSS 2008 !
