Published on

On Wednesday November 18th, 2015 Microsoft publicly released SharePoint 2016 Beta 2. I was on route from LA to Houston to speak at the Houston SharePoint Users Group and the organizers asked me to speak about what was new.

All of the content herein comes from the TechNet articles that Microsoft released on that morning and can be found here: https://technet.microsoft.com/EN-US/library/cc261970(v=office.16).aspx

I used this deck to talk to the new features that were released in IT Preview & Beta 2 that evening and was asked to share this deck.

Enjoy!

  4. 4. www.rackspace.com 4 SharePoint 2016 - MinRole
  5. 5. www.rackspace.com 5 SharePoint 2016 - MinRole Server role Description Front-end Service applications, services, and components that serve user requests belong on Front-end web servers. These servers are optimized for low latency. Application Service applications, services, and components that serve backend requests (such as background jobs or search crawl requests) belong on Application servers. These servers are optimized for high throughput. Distributed cache Service applications, services, and components that are required for a distributed cache belong on Distributed Cache servers. Search Service applications, services, and components that are required for searching belong on Search servers. Custom Custom service applications, services, and components that do not integrate with MinRole belong on Custom servers. The farm administrator has full control over which service instances can run on servers assigned to the Custom role. MinRole does not control which service instances are provisioned on this role. Single-server farm Service applications, services, and components required for a single machine farm belong on a Single- Server Farm. A Single-Server Farm is meant for development, testing, and very limited production use. A SharePoint farm with the Single-Server Farm role cannot have more than one SharePoint server in the farm.
