  • MS has made a huge investment in user facing improvements. Hundreds of small changes add up to tremendous increases in usability. With the time we have today I’d like to focus on just a few of the larger changes.

  • Lots of RAM – SharePoint 2010 and 2013 will actually turn down features like type ahead and search previewsHardware requirements—location of physical serversAll servers that belong to a server farm, including database servers, must physically reside in the same datacenter. Redundancy and failover between closely located data centers that are configured as a single farm ("stretched farm”) is not supported in SharePoint 2013.
  • Some KB’s needed if you use Server 2008 R2 sp1, check TechNetPowerShell 3.0 – Performance enhancements. Workflow and Simplified Command DiscoveryThe new Show-Command cmdlet is designed especially for beginners. You can search for commands in a window. You can view all commands or filter by module, import a module by clicking a button, use text boxes and drop-down lists to construct a valid command, and then copy or run the command without ever leaving the window.AppFabric – Caching this is key to a lot of the new social features. It takes memory across the servers and fuses it together to make it available for farm. Login token cacheInformation Protection and Control ClientWCF Data – Creation on consumption of OData services over the web, brings enhancements to BDCOData is an open web protocol for querying and updating data. It uses a RESTful approach to return data from resources on the web. That is, you use a URI with query parameters included to get information about a specific resource.The Open Data Protocol (OData) is a web protocol that is used to query and update data. OData applies web technologies such as HTTP, Atom Publishing Protocol (AtomPub), and JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) to provide access to information from a variety of applications, services, and stores.
  • The SQL Server configuration option 'max degree of parallelism' controls the number of processors used for the execution of a query with a parallel plan. Less Queries = higher MAXDOP. More Queries lower MAXDOP. SP2013 lots of queries. You will get errors creating DB's if not set to 1.
  • Shredded storage is, on the whole, a good thing, and is on by default. You can disable (or re-enable) shredded storage on a per-web application basis. BLOBs are not shredded on an upgrade, but are shredded when uploaded or modified. Shredded storage is SharePoint 2013, running on SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2012. Shredded storage is different than Cobalt. Cobalt is a framework that allows Office client applications to efficiently synchronize changes to SharePoint using the File Synchronization via SOAP of HTTP (FSSHTTP) API. Shredded storage is about how a document is shredded, stored, and reassembled by SQL Server. I’m hearing lots of people suggest that shredded storage works only on Office documents. Not true. Such statements are confounding shredded storage with Cobalt. When we look inside a content database on SharePoint 2013, we see PDFs and other file formats being shredded as well. Shredded storage is independent of RBS. You can use RBS with or without shredded storage, and vice versa. Now whether you would use RBS with shredded storage is another question. Folks in the community are currently running tests to determine the performance implications of doing so. My guess is that many of the performance advantages of RBS that I saw with customers, and that both Microsoft and I have documented in white papers, will be reduced or eliminated due to shredded storage. There was also a benefit in SharePoint 2010 to running RBS to store BLOBs on SAN and NAS devices that support deduplication. Shredded storage might very well reduce or eliminate that benefit. However, RBS will continue to be critically important in hierarchical storage management, where you are managing tiers of storage (and therefore cost and other characteristics) based on business rules.
  • Think of it as Shreds / Chunks of documents. This allows for deltas to be sent to sql for updates
  • One Search Platform – Previous we had multiple versions on search ( FAST Technology, FAST Search for SP, SP2010 Search Foundation)Crawl Component – Crawls / Indexes content. Uses local disk cache for further content procession Types of Crawl – Full, Incremental and Continuous (default 15mins)Content Processing – Processing the content and analyzes it before sending it to the index, creates better and cleaner index. Security Updates are done here. SP2010 this could take a long time 2013 much faster. Parses Docs and maps to managed properties. “Smart Title and Author Extractor” New in SP2013 will pick up titles and names and add it to the index. Prevents against poor naming of documents.Index - Add one index partition per 10 million items. Crawled property converted to Managed Property =Searchable,Refinable, Sortable,QueryableQuery Processing – Reads the index partitionsWFE – Event stream to Analytics Processing that feed back into index. Clicking on items boost relevancy and puts it into the Index.Analytics DB is created for Reporting
  • About 20k users per serverUse PowerShell to create farm and join SharePoint to OWA FarmWeb=1 will allow doc to open in OWA, without it opens in rich client
  • Can still build dashboards with PPSShift here is building more capabilities into Excel Services and and SSRSVisualizations and ability to work with SSAS data
  • Large set of improvementsContent Authoring Cut and paste into CEWP, RTE, or HTML Field controlIframe support to let content authors embed dynamic content from other sites Video and image preview
  • new features that you can use to author, brand, design, and manage sites and site elements.
  • Fundamental shift:
