On-Premise SharePoint 2013 Edition Comparison–Search

Pulling the table below from TechNet, the difference between Standard and Enterprise search in SharePoint 2013 is really only:

  • Content Search Web Part
  • Custom Entity Extraction
  • Extensible Content Processing
  • Advanced actions on Query Rules
  • Video Search

The differences from Foundation to Standard are too many to list separately so I’ll let the table do the talking.
