SharePoint Scalability

Well, that's one of the strengths because it not just using soap web services where it sends some XML file to different machines, but it's using WCF, which is a version of a web service, web services being used if you have a different machine where you want to call a function. The type of machines we are using now are invented by Alan Turing, a guy from the hacking Enigma code and Robert Dennard, who invented RAM. These types of machines do not allow you to, all functions on the remote machine. If you want to do that, you have to send a hint which is what web services does. View full review »

So far, we have not had any issues with scalability. We are investigating upgrading to the Enterprise edition in the future, so this may change. View full review »

It's fairly easy to scale. You can just add front-ends to it. Just a little installation and it's done. It's very easy to expand. View full review »

This solution is extremely scalable. It is a highly performance-optimized web service that you just have to install correctly and then add the machine to the farm with the proper permissions. That is one of the biggest strengths of SharePoint. View full review »

Since scale is not challenging me right now, I haven't really paid attention to its scalability. We have 12 users on it. Their roles are primarily deployment, resource management, and fulfilling the technical mandates people are working on. View full review »

SharePoint is easy and has new features now. Scalability with SharePoint is good and easy for us at work. To maintain the product, we do not need a large amount of professional, we currently have three professionals to administer the platform. View full review »

It's scalable because you can add more and more SharePoint's installations and maybe you can divide the content and everything, so it's scalable. View full review »
