Background:

The term "SharePoint" can collectively refer to a number of products ranging from the base platform to various services. The platform is Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), which is included with Windows Server and available as a free download for those with Windows Server licenses. (Vista users can use a helper application from Bamboo Nation to allow them to run SharePoint without having to have Windows Server installed.) Services such as Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) provide additional functionality and features and are licensed accordingly.

Here are the current SharePoint products and technologies:

  • Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS)
  • Search Server 2008 Express
  • Search Server 2008
  • Forms Server 2007
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 MOSS Standard
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 MOSS Enterprise
  • Microsoft Office Groove Server 2007
  • Microsoft Office Project Server 2007
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer

SharePoint, as a collection of technologies, is not intended to simply replace a full file server or to be a single use solution. Instead, it is geared and positioned to play various roles in the business and enterprise environment. Microsoft markets these vectors as Collaboration, Processes, and People.

The SharePoint user interface is a web interface accessed through a browser. While all browsers are supported, only Internet Explorer is fully integrated and able to utilize the full functionality of a SharePoint Solution.

SharePoint sites are functionally ASP.NET 2.0 web applications, which are served using IIS and use a SQL Server database as a data storage back end. All site content data, such as items in document libraries and lists, are stored within an SQL database named by default as "WSS_Content_[ID]".

Microsoft Search Server:

Microsoft Search Server (MSS) is an enterprise search platform from Microsoft. It builds on the search capabilities of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server. MSS shares its architectural underpinnings with the Windows Search platform for both the querying engine as well as the indexer. MOSS search provides the ability to search metadata attached to documents.

Microsoft has made Microsoft Search Server available as Search Server 2008, released March 2008. A free version, Search Server 2008 Express, is also available. The express edition features the same feature set as the commercial edition, including no limitation on the number of files indexed. However, it is limited to a stand-alone installation and cannot be scaled out to a cluster.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer:

Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer is a free WYSIWYG HTML Editor that administrators can use to customize the design of the SharePoint site and that end users can use in designing workflows. SharePoint Designers is the successor to Microsoft FrontPage and replaces it.
