I will be deploying a SharePoint Intranet using SP Standard 2010. I know i have to pay for FAST search if i want to use it.The only option i have to create a search site is Basic Search Center which is under Enterprise tab. Is that all i get under Standard version? Or i need to do some setup get something advanced. Just confirming. Thanks i advance ** If you have any resource you can forward me to on hwo to connfigure search for SP Standard Server 2010 i would appreciate it.
The best place to see the differences between Standard and Enterprise features is at http://sharepoint.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/pages/editions-comparison.aspx . Click on the "Search" filter and it will narrow the list down to what you are interested in. Standard Edition offers a lot.
Here is the TechNet page for configuring search: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee808863.aspx
