Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007's Search feature can support up to 50 million documents in a single index

As Microsoft approach RTM milestone for SharePoint Server 2007, I am extremely pleased to announce that the out of the box maximum recommended document limit for search in SharePoint Server 2007 is 50 million documents in a single index limited by hardware. SharePoint Server can support multiple indexes, so deployments above 50 million documents are possible on a custom solution basis. If you have a requirement for searching more than 50 million documents, please contact your Microsoft representative.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search (Enterprise Edition) also has an out of the box maximum recommended document limit of 50 million documents in a single index. There is no technically enforced document limit, but this product is limited to having only one index.

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 for Search (Standard Edition) has a limit of 500,000 documents and is also limited to having only one index.

Answers to some FAQs:

Q: What is a “document” in terms of Search?
A: A document can be anything from a Word or PowerPoint file, to a web page, an individual SharePoint list item, one people entry, or an SAP customer record.

Q: Does a very large document count as more than one item?
A: No. For example, a 10KB Word file and a 10MB Word file are each considered one document.

Q: What is considered to be an “average document size”?
A: This really depends on the content sources and file types that make up a corpus – so “average document size” can be very different for different customer environments. With Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, we now index individual list items (which was not the case with WSS 2.0). As a result, in environments where WSS 3.0 lists are used heavily, the large number of such small “documents” can reduce the average document size to as low as 10KB. Customers making limited use of WSS 3.0 lists will most likely see a larger average document size based on the overall composition of their corpus.

Q: What is the maximum number of indexes supported by SharePoint Server 2007?
A: SharePoint Server 2007 supports a maximum of 20 indexes. SharePoint Server 2007 for Search (Enterprise Edition and Standard Edition) supports only one index.

Q: What are my options if I purchase SharePoint Server 2007 for Search (Standard Edition) and my needs grow?
A: If your search needs exceed the 500,000 document limit of SharePoint Server 2007 for Search you can upgrade to SharePoint Server 2007 for Search (Enterprise Edition) which has no technically enforced document limit. In addition, you can upgrade from SharePoint Server 2007 for Search Standard or Enterprise edition to SharePoint Server 2007 if you wish to take advantage of the enhanced search and integrated information management functionalities provided by SharePoint Server 2007.

Survey shows ASP.NET, IIS lead Fortune 1000

A recent survey of the Fortune 1000 websites by Port80 Software shows that Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) usage has doubled over the last year as it is being used by 54.9 percent of companies. In contrast, Apache usage has dropped to 23.3 percent placing it 4 percentage points lower than IIS6 alone. While the results could very well be accurate, it should be noted that Port80 Software has a bias toward Microsoft as it is one of their partners, not to mention the company specializes in developing tools and solutions for IIS.
Port80 also performed a similar survey that analyzes Fortune 1000 use of application servers and scripting platforms. Like the web server survey, Microsoft again comes out on top with its ASP.NET platform being run by 48.4 percent of the companies. Other notables in the survey include Java at 12.7 percent, PHP at 5.4 percent, and ColdFusion at 3.1 percent. In order to find these results, Port80 analyzed HTTP headers from each company's site.

Vista RC2 Out, Last Build Before RTM

As expected, Microsoft on Friday issued the second release candidate of Windows Vista - the last public build before the next-generation operating system is released to manufacturing. As with the interim build before it, RC2 will be available to a limited number of CPP participants, beta testers, as well as TechNet and MSDN subscribers.
"Since the release of Windows Vista RC1, Microsoft has continued to receive excellent feedback that is helping to improve the overall quality and performance of the product," a company spokesperson told BetaNews. "RC2 reflects that feedback and includes important improvements in performance, application compatibility and fit and finish work. Customers should verify any outstanding issues not addressed during their RC1 testing." Download Windows Vista RC2 from FileForum now.

Here Comes Windows Vista RC2

Microsoft will ship the final prerelease version of Windows Vista on Friday and, unexpectedly, will name the new version Release Candidate 2 (RC2). (Microsoft had stated earlier that it wouldn't ship an RC2 milestone release of Vista.) But don't let the name fool you. RC2 is really just a standard interim build of Vista, but unlike RC1, it won't be distributed to millions of users.
The RC2 build is 5743, and Microsoft is currently testing it internally. As with the previous interim build, 5728, RC2 will go to beta testers, Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) and TechNet subscribers, and a random, limited number of Consumer Preview Program (CPP) members.
Although Microsoft wouldn't confirm the specifics of the release, the company did corroborate that it's planning an upcoming interim Vista build. "As we have previously discussed, Microsoft does plan to deliver more interim builds of Windows Vista before releasing the final product," a Microsoft spokesperson told me. "The exact name of the build and the date of its release have not been announced."
This is the last build Microsoft will be making available to the public prior to release to manufacturing (RTM). The RTM--which had been expected to be "on or before October 25"--has been adjusted slightly. Now, the Vista launch window begins October 18, when Microsoft will begin testing the final planned build for RTM. But Microsoft doesn't expect to finalize the product until sometime between October 25 and November 8.
Internal documentation notes that each daily delay after October 25 comes at a price, however: For each day past October 25, Microsoft will ship one less localized, language-specific version of Vista for the January launch. However, the company is prepared to do that to ensure that Vista's quality is high.
The internal documentation also notes that Vista still has more than 1400 bugs. Microsoft's internal processes require this bug count to drop to 500 or fewer before the product can go into escrow for RTM. By comparison, Vista had more than 2470 bugs on September 22.
In related news, Microsoft will be changing the product keys it uses for Vista after the product hits the RTM escrow phase. Consequently, users won't be able to use prerelease Vista product keys to install the RTM version. My understanding is that this change won't affect the RC2 release.


Running .NET Applications on Linux using Mono

I said it once. It's a cross language environment but people were laughing on me that time. Now it became implemented and third party developed release for it. While The Platform Kernel support CLR then move your .NET everywhere. It might lose some UI and API functionality but still effective.

Am looking to test my applications performance out there to notice how effective is it.

Here at ASPIRE we use NANT to build our .NET Applications as the client requires. but NANT still need .NET Framework to be installed. Mono is simulating .NET compiler using its MCS. Am keeping asking my self why Microsoft till now wont go that way even it's doable ??!!

Mono is an open source project (sponsored by Novell) that allows you to run .Net
applications on Linux (as well as Unix, Mac OS X, Solaris and even
Windows). Mono comes with its own .Net compiler, mcs. "With Monodevelop," you'll say,
referring to Mono's integrated development environment (IDE). With Monodevelop
your developers can happily work with Glade#, Gnome#, and GTK#, all within a
.Net-type environment. Check the software's download page for your distro's
version and any dependencies. With your .Net programmers happily producing applications for Linux, you can turn your attention to ASP .Net for building Web applications. You're going to need a Web server, which can be either Apache (with mod_mono installed) or Mono's own Web server, XSP. Have a look at the Mono Handbook page for Web sites and Web services to find out how to set up the XSP server. On Debian, for example, its just a matter of installing the software.

The other Google search site

Google has created a search site without any Google branding to test new features. The site, SearchMash, has a simple blue and white interface with a search bar and an option to click on "popular searches." Once keywords are entered, the results page features links to results running down the left side of the page and the top three image results on the right side.
SearchMash also lets you click on a result and drag and drop it to change the order. Also, when a link is clicked on, the user is offered the option of opening the listings in the current window or a new window, seeing more pages from the Web site or finding similar pages. Additional results are added to the bottom of the original results page by clicking on a "more web pages" link.
With SearchMash, Google "plans to test user interface ideas without Google's brand somehow skewing the tests," Danny Sullivan, editor of Search Engine wrote in a blog posting on Monday. "It's pretty slick."
