- Manage content growth through site quotas and monitoring solutions such as Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 or the newer System Center Operations Manager 2007 product.
- Use site collections to scale SharePoint to varying groups with different security needs.
- Use IIS virtual servers (IIS websites) to manage varying types of web-based access to SharePoint sites, such as SSL-encryption or different host headers.
- Consider SQL Server 2005/2000 log shipping for simple redundancy of SharePoint data, if clustering is not an option.
- If the full level of scalability with SQL Server 2005/2000 is required, use the Enterprise Edition of the software and the Windows Server 2003 operating system.
- Utilize SharePoint farms to provide for scalability beyond single server SharePoint environments.
- Don't deploy any more than four search or four index servers in a single SharePoint farm.
- Consider the use of network load-balancing failover technology on the front-end SharePoint web servers of mid-size to large SharePoint deployments.
- Deploy MSCS clustering technologies for the database servers of large SharePoint deployments.
- Use Office 2007 components at the client level for the best integration with SharePoint technologies.
- Deploy MOSS 2007 with Exchange Server 2007 for the most robust messaging and collaboration environment.
- Integrate SharePoint with BizTalk Server 2006 to control, manage, and centralize access to business process data. This allows intelligent business decisions to be made more easily.
- Use SharePoint document libraries to address the problems of redundant creation of documents and inefficient document collaboration in an environment.
- Utilize SharePoint's search and indexing capabilities to efficiently search across different types of content.
- Use SharePoint document libraries and versioning to avoid the excessive use of email attachments during document collaboration.
- Utilize metadata in document libraries to effectively organize or classify content.
- Deploy and utilize the features of a Windows SharePoint Services team site, such as document libraries, meeting workspaces, tasks lists, and discussions, when users need to collaborate on a common project.
- Use MOSS 2007 to index external content sources for creating a corporate intranet solution that provides centralized access to information and processes.
- Utilize the extranet features of MOSS 2007 to manage content directed to customers outside an organization.
- Map SharePoint's functionality with the specific user needs of the organization.
