Companyweb and SharePoint Considerations Plus Not One Recycle Bin, But Two!
One of the primary reasons we did not move too many of our client's primary data component onto the Companweb site in the SBS 2003 time frame was the lack of an ability to recover those "accidentally" deleted items.
All of that has changed with the introduction of Windows SharePoint Services version 3 and the built-in Recycle Bin system.
The catch for us implmenting WSS V3 on SBS 2003 was the inherent limitations of the 32bit OS that was already loaded down with a number of different SBS related and third party related services. Thus, we only implemented in a limited number of client settings where WSS would be used, but not cause too much additional stress (especially RAM related) on SBS 2003.
With SBS 2008 and the WSS v3 product that drives the new Companyweb Internal Web site, we are seeing a whole new opportunity. We can utilize the out of the box Companyweb on SBS 2008 to a great extent and not worry too much about RAM or database limitations for our smaller to medium sized clients.
