Migrating large, existing company share drives to SharePoint 2010.

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
My company has terabytes of documents stored out on a large share drive.  In implementing SharePoint 2010, one of the great features with documents is versioning, permissions etc.  Currently I'm planning on each department to slowly upload documents to SharePoint 2010 under their department sites/site collections as it makes sense and of course create any new documents there in their site document libraries.  99% of every document uploaded to SharePoint will be from this old share drive.  Is there a better way to migrate this content into SharePoint than having people upload documents individually (or "upload multiple files")?  I know I can add the share drive to the SharePoint search results, or add links to the share drive location, but we really need the versioning on documents and have things show up in SharePoint like it normally would in a list.  Any guidance is much appreciated. Thanks!

Using Freeware SharePoint Foundation 2010 with BLOB extender for large scale deployment project.

  
Hi Everyone, If I'd like to deploy SharePoint 2010 Foundation with Express DB (no SQL Server) what's the limitation ? and suppose i have implemented BLOB extender from freeware 3rd partyhttp://www.avepoint.com/sharepoint-storage-extender-docave/ does that means i can deploy more than 4 GB of data and it should perform faster since the SQL Express is not loaded with BLOB (document binaries). Can anyone clarify this matter please ? Thanks. /* Infrastructure Support Engineer */

Application Pools when is it okay to share them when installing SharePoint 2010 in production

  

Hi, I read the MS stuff stating that running ten Application pools (not web apps) on a server is roughly about the maximum you should have running on a server (okay it alls depends on the amount of RAM and the actual box) but my question is as such, when installing SP 2010 and all the services, for instance for a client and they want the services configured whether they are going to use them or not. You could end up with over well over 10 application pools, so what services are okay to share an application pool and which should have have their own application pool. Is there some info out there on best practice remember i am asking this for production builds not test as I see that the Stand Alone SP2010 Wizard Installation runs all the services under the same application pool.

Some guidence or info would be appreciated. Thanks

Migrating 3rd Party document Libraries to SharePoint 2010

  

Hi,

I'm looking at migrating a 3rd party document library to SharePoint 2010. After reviewing the SDK, I have some questions.

First, would it be more feasible to use the Content Migration Library or the Document Management Library to perform the migration?

Second, regrading the creation of the .CMP file. I understand the .CMP file is simply a CAB file with relevant XML files stored inside. I guess my question is, how should I procuce this .CMP file? Should I use the CAB SDK or is there an alternative SDK I should be using? And what compression should I be using etc.

I appreciate and feedback on this issue.

Thanks

Are there any limitations in SharePoint 2010 BCS when working with large data?

  

Hi,

We are working on suggesting the best approach that would be suitable to support user data stored in SQL Server 2008. User data is huge (in Terabytes). I need to understand if there are any issues using MOSS 2007 BDC or SharePoint 2010 BCS to interact with SQL Server 2008 database tables? I understand that BCS offers a no-code solution for interacting with SQL tables, however when handling such large data, can we have better performance if Stored Procedures and ADO.Net is used to fetch and update the data?

All in all I need to understand the pros and cons in both these approaches. Any pointers, specifically to related real world case studies shall highly be appreciated. Thanks much!
