SharePoint 3 and SharePoint 2010 Services

Jun 05, 2015

CloudPortal Services Manager supports SharePoint Services 3.0 and SharePoint 2010 environments.

SharePoint 3.0

IIS virtual servers are created through SharePoint Manager. These virtual servers are available for selection when setting up the SharePoint packages. All customer sites provisioned with a particular package and virtual server are child sites of the same virtual server. CloudPortal Services Manager configures the appropriate host header on the virtual server for each customer and SharePoint's authentication and authorization handles the segmentation of the sites so that customers see only appropriate content.

SharePoint 2010

Customers are configured with SharePoint Feature Packs that determine the functionality that is available to provisioned users.

A standard SharePoint installation includes 12 preconfigured customer plans. These plans determine how the site is configured and saved on the SharePoint 2010 server. Service providers configure the availability of the following templates when they provision the service to customers. All templates support SSL authentication.
Customer Site
This site is attached to a Web application that is configured specifically for the customer. If additional sites are configured with the same package, these sites are assigned to the same Web application. This site uses a dedicated content database. Additionally, a separate Customer site template is available that includes anonymous authentication.
Shared Site
This site is attached to a shared Web application where other customers' SharePoint sites reside. This site uses a dedicated content database. Additionally, a separate Shared site template is available that includes anonymous authentication.
Dedicated Site
This site is attached to its own Web application. No other SharePoint sites are configure for the Web application pool unless the Web application is manually overridden with the Web application's name. This site uses a dedicated content database. Additionally, a separate Dedicated site template is available that includes anonymous authentication.
