Search in SharePoint Server 2007 is a shared service that is available only through a Shared Services Provider (SSP).

Table 16-1 provides a feature comparison between the search engine that is installed with a Windows SharePoint Services 3.0—only implementation and an SharePoint Server 2007 implementation.
