Growing Your SharePoint Service

  • Steve Goodyear


In this chapter, I provide guidance on how to plan for growing your SharePoint service. I define general infrastructure components and server roles related to SharePoint. From there, I introduce considerations to scale for availability by adding redundancy and planning for growth. I also discuss how to add servers to expand a farm’s infrastructure capabilities, as well as how to allocate and distribute services on different servers. Finally, I discuss some considerations for planning subordinate farms and how they can work alongside an enterprise farm.
