Microsoft Ramping Up Search Engine Use
Oshoma Momoh, General Manager of the MSN Search Program has announced that MSN will be directing more of its search traffic through their beta engine.
The tests are designed to test the scalability of the system:
As you know we have been testing the beta of our new search service on an opt-in basis for several months now. From time to time we also route some of the customers from our live search service at search.msn.com through the Beta web site in order to do scalability testing.
Next week we intend to begin turning up the dial and direct more of our users to the Beta. You’ll continue to see us doing this on occasion for the forseeable future. As before, the service remains in beta status and we will officially launch it when it’s ready.
