Dell has partnered with Norwegian company FAST (Fast Search and Transfer) to build the world's most comprehensive Web search engine, which FAST will be offering to portals as a plug-in search engine much like Inktomi has done. FAST claims that the site, at www.alltheweb.com, already indexes 80 million Web pages, will have 200 million by the summer and is aiming to index the whole Web, a billion documents, by 2000. AltaVista currently holds the record, with 150 million pages indexed. Dell will provide server hardware, while FAST provides the search algorithms and expansion cards which contain specialised chips, developed at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
