ACIS Consulting Takes Microsoft FAST Search to the Cloud

(Toronto , Canada March 31, 2012) ACIS Consulting Inc. (ACIS), one of the most experienced Microsoft FAST Enterprise Search technology developers and systems integrators, has announced the release of Version 4 of its hosted Enterprise Search as a Service (ESaaS) offering that now runs on the Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint.

ESaaS is a complete “solution + services” package that includes a hosted IT infrastructure, a highly advanced, multi-tenanted enterprise search platform and access to professional search technology consulting services.

The ACIS ESaaS hosted search service was initially released in 2006, with the objective of meeting the needs of customers who wish to reduce the total cost of operation of their enterprise search service by sharing the search technical infrastructure and platform.

Companies that manage and deliver large volumes of web content to thousands of clients know that search is a strategic application that serves as a primary tool for quickly connecting clients to the information they are looking for. However, with content volumes continuing to grow at exponential rates, maintaining an optimally configured search service can become very complex and frustrating. Search technology experts are essential for continuous monitoring, tuning and adapting to changing business needs.

“FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint is starting to gain traction in the marketplace” said Efrem Habteselassie, principal at ACIS Consulting. “We have upgraded our product to run on this new platform because wanted both to use the new innovations in this release and also to position ourselves and our customers to be among the first to take advantage of the new capabilities we anticipate in future releases of the Microsoft FAST Search Server.”
