SharePoint 2010 provides 5 different type of out of box search:

This comes with SharePoint foundation 2010. This will work only with one site collection at a time and it cannot index external data sources.

2. Microsoft Search Server Express:
This is an Enterprise Search product that is freely downloadable. This engine can index external sources and supports search federation. It is intended for organizations that want an Enterprise Search capability but do not require significant scalability.

3. Microsoft Search Server 2010:
This is an Enterprise Search engine that can scale across multiple servers and tens of millions of items. This product is the upgraded version of Search Server Express. It is intended for organizations that need a scalable search engine but are not using SharePoint Server 2010.

4. Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010:
This provides all the facility of Search Server 2010 and also provides integration of people search, taxonomy and social networking.

5. FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint:
