Hi my dear reader!
As you know, computing systems and applications are essential part of modern life and we cannot imagine our business life without them at present days. It is especially true for e-commerce companies, but also of great importance for other businesses. If a company uses such systems to perform business critical functions like order processing and tracking, inventory control, transaction processing, customer support, and electronic commerce the consequences of failing these systems may be catastrophic.

SharePoint large farm architecture

SharePoint large farm servers

In case some of functions described below are not accessible you can lose revenue and productivity, have your customer unsatisfied, lose business critical information and have reduced decision making capabilities. All these consequences made companies to choose highly available environments that are up and running 24/7 and 365 days per year for performing their business tasks.
The other important thing that hosting provider can offer is support and monitoring for SharePoint servers 24/7/365. So with dedicated highly available SharePoint server you can get a widely used corporation tool which gained its popularity in all corporate circles which gives you an ability to build a robust, fault-tolerant, and highly available portal that will survive the loss of any one component.

Get SharePoint on multiple servers

With PlexHosted you can easily get highly available SharePoint farm and be sure that all your applications are protected from failing because SharePoint architecture is based on multiple servers, users will have a high ability to perform their expected job responsibilities, and business and customer transactions won`t be stopped. Having chosen a solution providing high level of accessibility you can prevent your company from loss of business, customers and damaged reputation. And here starts good news for you. PlexHosted provides fully managed, high-available dedicated SharePoint servers with SharePoint Foundation, Standard or Enterprise editions.

Highly accessible SharePoint servers

Highly accessible SharePoint portal is an essential requirement for companies planning to build a public facing site. It is designed to support big number of users online at the same time. In general company can have up to 2 million users per site collection if SharePoint large farm architecture is used.

Highly available SharePoint servers

Disaster recovery and high-available SharePoint systems

High availability of the SharePoint Server – this is one of the main reasons which makes companies think: “SharePoint system is the exactly what we need!”. When choosing highly accessible redundant environment for your business, note that you must distinguish high-availability and disaster recovery. Even in case of a failure of part of the infrastructure highly available SharePoint portal gives you an ability to access the system, submit new work, update the existing work, or collect the results of previous work. And disaster recovery process helps you to recover an environment that has already failed. So, please be careful with SharePoint provider choosing, because some of SharePoint providers offer cheap “Disaster Recovery” systems but called them “High Availability” SharePoint servers.

Benefits of SharePoint high availability SharePoint server

All of front-end web servers, application servers, database servers will be protected from unplanned hardware, software and human errors. It will be also protected from planned downtime resulting from reconfiguration, hardware upgrades, hot fixes and service packs as well as protected from data loss or corruption, from site failures or disasters. I think it`s a good reason to buy highly available dedicated SharePoint servers for your company, isn`t it?

Dedicated SharePoint hosting for large business

And finally, if you still hesitate whether you should invest in highly available SharePoint 2010 or not answer one of the following questions:

  • Will employees be unable to perform their expected job responsibilities in case the system site, service, or farm becomes unavailable?
  • Will business and customer transactions be stopped, leading to loss of revenues and customers when system becomes unavailable?

If you have answered “yes” on at least one of these questions then yes, you certainly should. In addition, if you want to get best support, monitoring SharePoint servers you need to take a look at PlexHosted company services.

Greetings everyone!
Are you want to have a SSL secured SharePoint environment and be sure that SharePoint data is secure? In this case, you are at the right place! I would like to tell you about SharePoint SSL security and SharePoint SSL certificates in this post.

SSL – Secure Sockets Layer

What is SSL (Secure Socket Layer)

It stands for “Secure Sockets Layer” and it is a protocol that creates secure (HTTPS) connectivity between the server and your application and allows encrypting and decrypting data sent between the two. The applications like web browsers (Internet Explorer and Firefox), email programs like Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Apple Mail.app, and SFTP (secure file transfer protocol) programs are configured to run SSL. These programs are automatically able to receive SSL connections. But to establish a secure SSL connection your application must have an encryption key assigned to it by a Certification Authority in the form of a Certificate. When your application owns its unique key, you can establish a secure connection using the SSL protocol. In case you are transmitting confidential, business critical information using your SharePoint environment with the SSL encryption will protect it from others seeing it. Do not let your data to be available for those who shouldn’t have it. You can always be sure that sensitive information like Social Security numbers, credit card numbers and so on is protected by a secure HTTPS connection and your customers can trust to your site.

SharePoint SSL security and SharePoint SSL certificates

SharePoint SSL security

Most of the companies requires secure and safe SharePoint services. And it is quite essential for an e-commerce site to provide a secure user authentication since the company may lose customers without it. The solution is simple. You can deploy an SSL certificate to your SharePoint site and ensure a SharePoint site security.

Hi SharePointers,
Usually organization works with a big amount of sensitive and confidential information which is stored in SharePoint sites, document libraries, lists and workspaces. So today I would like to tell you about secure dedicated SharePoint servers.

PlexHosted – secure dedicated SharePoint servers

Capabilities of dedicated SharePoint servers

With PlexHosted dedicated SharePoint servers you can easily implement a fully managed and highly secured environment and apply data security policies in order to control access, authentication, and authorization to the SharePoint data. These SharePoint security policies will help you to make dedicated SharePoint servers more securely and securely store all SharePoint data to SharePoint servers.

Dedicated SharePoint have a number features like permission management to allow access to those users who deserve and require it. You can apply the necessary permissions level using three groups automatically created for you: Owners, Members and Visitors or customize them by adding your own security levels and granting unique permissions for different users.

Dedicated SharePoint – secure business system

If you want to get the high level of security for your SharePoint site and SharePoint server security requirements exceed the abilities of out of the box features, the additional options are available within dedicated SharePoint servers environment. A multifaceted approach to the SharePoint security works well to protect SharePoint farm itself and your organization’s data from attack. With PlexHosted managed SharePoint services you can set the secure SharePoint implementation to the highest priority. In addition, you can easily purchase a SSL certificate with PlexHosted for your domain name and deploy it at your dedicated SharePoint servers. In this case all traffic between SharePoint servers and end SharePoint users would be SSL-encrypted.

PlexHosted team can customize required security policies of your dedicated SharePoint servers to meet all specific needs starting from the encrypted SharePoint traffic and finishing with the password policies configuration.

Dedicated SharePoint and data security requirements

Dedicated SharePoint server requires all users to use strong passwords. These passwords help prevent the compromise of user accounts and administrative accounts by unauthorized people who use either manual methods or automated tools to guess weak passwords. Strong passwords that are changed regularly reduce the likelihood of a successful password attack. When applying SharePoint password policies, you can force users to set strong passwords, change them after a certain period of time. You can set passwords to meet complexity requirements, for example, set them to have at least N characters and include a combination of letters, numbers, and symbols. You can determine the number of unique new passwords before an old password can be reused like “previous N passwords cannot be used”. To make these settings more effective you can set the minimum password age and allow users to change it only after several days and, additionally, set the maximum password age to force users to change their passwords every N days. Account lockout policies provides you with the ability to configure the account disabling for a preset period of time after a specified number of failed attempts.  Please note that a locked-out account cannot be used until it is reset by using the admin account.

So, if you want to have a secure, flexible and always working SharePoint servers do not waste your time and choose dedicated SharePoint servers for this purpose.

You have a large business and want to have a secure SharePoint failover server for your company? Please let me tell you about high availability SharePoint servers.

SharePoint for large companies

Powerful system – SharePoint

SharePoint – fast growing product from Microsoft that is well-known among the companies and corporations. This is one of the most powerful system which gained its popularity in all corporative circles. Microsoft has released not just a simple CMS, but a complex and flexible platform with a huge functionalities and abilities.

Popular system – SharePoint

There are a ton of articles and sites dedicated to SharePoint and this is another proof of SharePoint popularity. I want to give you a bit statistics, which say that one in two corporations are now using SharePoint Server and in 22% of the companies, every employee uses this Microsoft tool. This statistics was got from Association for Information and Image Management (AIIM).

So, maybe you have a question “Why so many large companies and big corporations are impressed by Microsoft SharePoint?”. I`ll try to answer on it in this post.

Inexpensive system – SharePoint

As I just said above – SharePoint is a way way way more than just a CMS. It is more like as an application framework. We can talk about the capabilities of SharePoint Server for hours, but that is not the point at the moment. The main point of the reason to choose SharePoint platform as a company’s site is the availability and low pricing of the SharePoint servers.

SharePoint server high availability

High availability SharePoint server

High availability of the SharePoint Server – this is one of the main reasons which makes companies think: “SharePoint system is the exactly what we need!”. With high availability SharePoint Server 2010 companies can build a robust, fault-tolerant, and high-availability corporate portals.

Reliable servers for business SharePoint systems

To start off (and this is quite important), you need to distinguish the meaning of high availability servers and disaster recovery servers. High availability gives users the ability to access the system, whether to submit new work, update or alter existing work, or collect the results of previous work and so on even in case of a failure of part of the infrastructure. Disaster recovery is a process of recovering an environment that has already failed. So, please keep in mind that high-available, failover systems are more required than simple systems for your successful business!
When investing in SharePoint high-availability of the environment company is assured that their users will certainly have an ability to perform their expected job responsibilities, and business and customer transactions won’t be stopped. Highly available SharePoint portal prevents loss of business and customers. With such environment companies can be confident that they are protected from missing critical deadlines because of down services resulting in lost business and damaged reputation.

Pluses of high availability

The other plus of SharePoint high-availability environment is designed to support big number of users online at the same time. In general company can have up to 2 million users per site collection in SharePoint 2010. It is not a problem if a few thousands of users or more will be online with such environment. This is a great benefit especially for large companies planning to have a public facing site.

SharePoint servers 2012 high availability pricing

Portal high availability pricing

Almost forgot, what about the pricing, I hope everyone understands that for big corporation availability – it is one of the most important points and is one of the most expensive requirements for a system. The higher the level of availability and the more systems that a company wants to protect the more complex and costly an availability solution is likely to be. When you choose to design the highly available SharePoint 2010 environment keep in mind that you will need to pay for additional hardware and software, which can increase the complexity of interactions among software applications and settings and the additional operational complexity. Sounds like not very good news. But look at the advantages above and the companies using SharePoint technology. . According to the National Archives & Records Administration, 50% of companies that lost their data center due to a disaster filed for immediate bankruptcy. If the company requires “five nines” level of availability and it can be ensured with continuous access to mission-critical content, I think the costs worth it.

Large companies with high availability SharePoint servers

SharePoint and large business

Because of all this advantages and ensuring the availability of critical SharePoint services SharePoint Server 2010 keeps the leading place and fast growth. To add a proof to my words I can give the examples of companies considered SharePoint as a “one-stop shop” for their business: Procter & Gamble, Kroger , Dell (Financial Services), Pfizer (UK site), Kraft Foods, HESS, Chrysler Group, Philip Morris International, Fluor and so on. These examples of SharePoint corporate portals illustrate the adoption of SharePoint in the corporate world.

So, if you want to have a secure, flexible and always working corporate portal do not waste your time and choose a high-availablity SharePoint servers for this purpose.
