- A stand-alone deployment is useful when you want a deployment for product evaluation or demonstration, a small-scale deployment with minimal administrative overhead, or a development environment or test environment. A stand-alone deployment is an installation of FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint on a single server. All required components are installed on this server.
- A multiple server deployment is recommended for most production environments, except small deployments without any fault-tolerance requirements. A multiple server deployment is an installation of FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint services on multiple servers. During configuration, one server is defined as the administration server, which is the server where the administrative services are installed and run. The deployment is scaled out by adding one or more non-administration servers. A non-administration server does not have the administrative services set up, but connects to a running administration server in a multiple server deployment. The non-administration server runs services such as query matching, indexing and document/item processing
