How can we integrate Microsoft FAST with SDL Tridion 2011 SP1?

Hello All,


Right now we are using SDL Tridion 5.3 soon we will be upgrading to Tridion 2011 SP1. While upgrading to Tridion 2011 SP1 we also want to use FAST FISE (SP 4) search engine for implementing search on the published web site.

Can anyone help us in understanding how this can be done with respect to Deployer extentions as well as changes in Content Delivery side (we have .NET implementation) and also Azure. Is there any API reference or implementation documentation available?



  • I unfortunately cannot help you with your FAST FISE query, however I would recommend if you're upgrading that you go to the latest, greatest and supported release - SDL Web 8.5. SDL Tridion 2011 (along with SDL Tridion 5.3) is now a retired release.
  • From the beginning, the Microsoft SDL identified that security needed to be everyone’s job and included practices in the SDL for program managers, developers, and testers, all aimed at improving security. Further, recognizing that one size doesn’t fit all development approaches, it described flexible practices and activities proven to improve security of software applications at every stage of development using either the classic waterfall or newer agile methodology. However, other than considering the production environment, the SDL didn’t include activities for operations engineers.
    The DevOps approach changes that. Now, development and operations are tightly integrated to enable fast and continuous delivery of value to end users. DevOps has replaced siloed development and operations to create multidisciplinary teams that work together with shared and efficient practices, tools, and KPIs. To deliver highly secure software and services in this fast-moving environment, it is critical for security to move at the same speed. One way to achieve this is to build security in development (SDL) and operations (OSA) processes.
