Microsoft Sharepoint Services 2010 Goes 64-bit Only

Recommended Posts

Microsoft's new Sharepoint Services (SPS) 2010, which is currently in beta, takes serverside computing to go 64-bit only as it is available exclusively as a 64-bit version, runs only on 64-bit editions of Microsoft Windos 2008 Server or Microsoft Windows 2008 Server Release 2, and requires the use of the 64-bit edition of the Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 database or the 64-bit edition of the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 database. The hardware requirements are high, specifying a quad-core processor, four gigabytes of memory for a developer installation and eight gigabytes of memory for a single server installation.Sharepoint Services 2010 bring few new features over the Microsoft Office Sharepoint Services 2007, such as the ability to write to external data sources, support for rich media content, and support for binary large object data. The Sharepoint Workspace client enables users to work in offline mode, and supports working with either the Sharepoint server or in peer-to-peer mode.Sharepoint Services 2010 can be run on a client operating system, such as Microsoft Windows 7, and is one of the key benefits for Sharepoint developers, who currently have to setup a virtual machine, use a server operating system, or run a server operating system on a separate machine. The high system requirements will be a road block for some developers who would have to upgrade or replace their development machines to be able to develop software for the new platform.Windows Sharepoint Services (WSS) 3.0, which is a free addition and is a part of the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system, is no longer included with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 and has to be downloaded separately. The download, however, is free and does not require registration. Windows Sharepoint Services is undergoing a re-branding and will be called Microsoft Sharepoint Services 2010 Foundation, although some sources currently refer to it as Windows Sharepoint Services (WSS) 4.0.Sharepoint Services 2010, currently in beta, is available from the Microsoft website, although currently a free registration is required to initiate the download.
