SharePoint Performance Tuning and Stress Testing
Improve SharePoint Performance in your environment. Learn one dozen easy-to-implement performance tips for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007. We discuss a wide range of topics from configuring caching to identifying memory leaks in custom code. We will learn how to use readily available tools to baseline our SharePoint Farm. Then we will use the same tools to measure the results of our performance tuning. We will then explore the use of Visual Studio 2008 to Stress Test our Farm. Stress Testing is useful for capacity planning and understanding the limitations of our environment. The content of this session is applicable to SharePoint Developers, Administrators and Architects.
Road to SharePoint 2010: Lessons Learned from my Travels
You've seen the exciting demos at the launch events. You've witnessed the excitement and heard the promises. But you have large investments of time, knowledge, money, and sweat equity in your MOSS 2007 Farm. This session will explore common challenges encountered when moving to SharePoint 2010 and will offer practical advice for planning the move. For example, should the existing Farm be upgraded or should a migration be performed? Is additional hardware required? Will web parts or custom code used in the current MOSS 2007 Farm break after moving to SharePoint 2010? Please let my experience (mistakes :) ) save you time!
