FAST Search and Transfer Technology To Power MapQuest

Every now and then I like to post an item or two about happenings in the enterprise search world. This is especially true when they have a consumer search angle.

News from Fast Search and Transfer that their Enterprise Search Platform technology will be used to power MapQuest.

This is the second time we’ve heard about AOL (MapQuest is a wholly owned subsidiary) announcing a deal with Fast Search and Transfer. In January, Chris mentioned that Fast Search and Transfer is providing AOL with a crawl of the web for their local web search tool.
