Is the Find utility standard on all linux servers? Like Sed and Grep?

Yes, it is standard.

I've never seen one which didn't have it by default. It's usually in the findutils package.

but specifically the gnu findutils package? – user1166981 Dec 15 '12 at 1:10
I never ran into any GNU/Linux or BSD installation which did not have a version of find. – Hennes Dec 15 '12 at 12:33
All GNU/Linux systems will have the GNU findutils package. If they don't have the GNU packages they are not GNU/Linux. – terdon Dec 15 '12 at 15:13
