Sharepoint Server

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Would like to set up a home sharepoint server for a small business - I need parts and recommended software. Most that would access it would be between 5-6 people and security would need to be top notch - all recommendations are appreciated! Thank you guys - appreciate your wisdom

Happy turkey day!

You don't need to spend $1000 on the hardware, but you need a Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2 license and you need to buy the SharePoint software itself. Not happening on $1000. Regardless I don't know what you mean by "recommended software" -- there is none. You need the OS and the SharePoint server, that's it. Might want an antivirus to go with that but you wouldn't need anything else.

That said, my suggestion to you is to use Microsoft Office 365. For 5-6 users, the TCO is much lower.

Great, so which hardware do you recommend then. Obviously sharepoint would be required - I wasn't positive of which version to run of windows server. Neither are included in the budget for hardware.

If you want SharePoint 2010 you will need Windows Server 2008 or 2008 R2. Get the 64-bit edition. For such a small implementation, you could just use the SQL Server Express that comes bundled with SharePoint.
For the hardware, get a cheap-ish quad core such as a Core i5 2320, 8 GB of RAM, a motherboard that will support both the CPU's on-die GPU and RAID 1, a pair of identical hard drives, and a reliable ~400W PSU such as an Antec Earthwatts 380W or a Corsair CX430V2.
If you wanted something more professional (i.e. actual workstation/server hardware), you could get a Xeon E3-1225, an Asus P8B WS, 8 GB of DDR3 ECC and a pair of WD RE4 500GB drives. Your choice of case.
You mentioned something about security -- most security is implemented through networking and software, but if physical security is an issue, then you might want a case you can lock somehow.

Edit: BTW Newegg has a decent looking combo with slightly better parts: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.750754
Add a second hard drive and it's good to go.

Just got an update that'd she'd like to use workshare 3 which i'm assuming is sharepoint 2007 not 2010 - dislikes 2010.

What would be the differences between what you have recommended and Windows server requirements to run Sharepoint 2007?

You mentioned SQL server express comes bundled with Sharepoint - does that include 2007 as well or only 2010?

I'm not familiar with Workshare so I can't help you there. I can tell you that Sharepoint 2007 requires Windows Server 2003 (or 2003 R2, I forget). I'm not sure if SP2007 comes bundled with SQL Server Express for people who don't have an existing SQL Server in their environment, but SQL Server Express is a free download, so even if it doesn't come with SP2007, you can always get it easily.

If you don't need all the functionality of the full Sharepoint 2010 system you can download Sharepoint 2010 Foundation for free from MS so you will just need the server software. I think you should be able to install it on Small Business Server 2011 Essentials without much effort but I haven't tried.

Have fun getting 2007...

Are there any good open source for intrusion prevention that you guys would recommend?

The only one of heard of so far is snort and i'm not sure if that would work for my needs.

Setup an external firewall (pfsense) and configure VPN. So the server needs to be accessed from outside of the local network?
