SharePoint 2010 Redundant & Virtualized Farm

Monday, March 12th, 2012

Question: How to achieve SharePoint 2010 redundant & virtualized farm with minimum number of physical servers?

Answer: Plan for virtualization (SharePoint Server 2010)​

SharePoint Server 2010 – Virtualized Farm Architecture for fully Redundant Farm with only Two Physical Nodes

  •  – High Availability across Hosts
  •  – All Components Virtualized
  •  – Uses Only two Windows Enterprise Edition Licenses

As more companies try to decrease managing and investment expenses, fix the problems of datacenter solidity, and provide versatility to their SharePoint deployments – so in such circumstances virtualization becomes the pivotal point of conversation.  SharePoint 2010 provides more versatility in assistance of virtualization and similar to other hosting server technological innovation needs appropriate preparing to make sure those objectives are met.

How to Modify Database Capacity Settings in SharePoint 2010?

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Microsoft has come up with the following benchmarks, beyond which performance suffers.

Content db Recommended Default
Site Collection in Single Content db 10000 15000

Navigate to Central Administration and then Application Management

Central Administration> Application Management
Click on Manage Content databases Under Databases
Click on Database Name On which you want to modify capacity setting.

Modify the Maximum Number of Site per Content db. (15000 to 10000)

According to Microsoft, you can have up to 50,000 Site Collections in a single web application. The bigger question I think you should be asking yourself is, how many Site Collections do you want to put in any single content database? When you look at SharePoint from a recovery perspective it is important to limit the size of your content databases so that you can manage your backups and restores. Each Site Collection can only reside in a single content database, though you can have any number of collections in a content db. So, while I can have 50,000 collections in my web app, how many content databases will that be and how many of those collections will be in each db?
