FAST’s good old enterprise search platform, ESP™ has not been upgraded or improved since Microsoft took over the business in 2008. And this summer it is the end of support and hotfixes too.
Most ESP users have already taken action and completed or at least started a migration project. Those who want to stay within the Microsoft world, must move to Sharepoint. For others that is an awkward solution, and for several of these, we have facilitated migrations to Open Source solutions such as Apache Solr™ or ElasticSearch™.
Still not decided what to do? Call us for a chat. We know ESP inside/out and also Lucene based solutions and may guide you through a successful migration whether you like to do 10% or 90% of it yourself. See our migration page for more.
