SharePoint 2010 Administration

SharePoint 2010 gives you deeper insight into operations. Features include an easy-to-use Central Administration Web site, new capabilities to manage and monitor your SharePoint farm, and Microsoft Windows PowerShell support.

SP 2010 provides a single, scalable infrastructure that allows better control over server resources. For example, you can manage large lists more easily and improve data management and protection using high availability. A scalable services architecture also helps you centralize services like Search, My Sites, and Taxonomy. These services can be managed through Central Administration and scripted by Windows PowerShell. Plus, because the architecture is extensible, third-party companies can build and add services to the platform.

SP 2010 provides a simple installation and configuration process, including a smooth upgrade from SP 2007. What’s more, new features can help you manage how your people use SP 2010. For example, you can allow site administrators to upload custom code with Sandbox Solutions. You also have more control over how the system is set up: If you want to maintain a centralized SharePoint system, you can block decentralized deployments through Group Policy or track them with Active Directory marker support.
