FS4SP Installation Process

stand alone server configuration
Stand-alone server configuration
  • Easy to setup and can handle 15 million indexed items
  • Used for development environments, test and small scale production environment
  • All FS4SP components deployed on a single server
  • No scalability or failover capabilities
  • Can be changed to a multiple server deployment
multi server configuration
Multi-server configuration
  • More complex to setup and has no theoretical upper bounds for scale
  • Recommended for most production environments
  • FS4SP components deployed on a specialised server to provide scalability and failover capabilities
  • Additional operational overheads
content search service application
Content Search Service Application
  • Create SSA to associate FAST Farm with SharePoint farm and enable crawling
  • Enable content feeding
  • Content sources managed through SharePoint Central Administration
  • Deploy additional connectors specific to FAST
query search service application
Query Search Service Application
  • Create Query SSA to enable queries from the SharePoint WFE’s
  • Contains the query and crawl component for people search
  • Configure FAST Specific service endpoints – Query, Administration and Resource Store.
  • Add Query SSA to the default group for your web applications
  • Enable Claims Based Authentication
backup restore and monitoring
Backup, Restore and Monitoring
  • Plan backup and restore strategies early in your FAST deployment process
  • Configuration backup and restore
  • Full backup and restore
  • Pair with SharePoint Backups
  • No UI all backups and restores administered via PowerShell
  • SMO is required
  • Monitor FS4SP
    • SCOM SP1 or R2
    • WMI
    • Perfmon and SP Logs
