SharePoint Administration

The SharePoint administrative tasks can be organized into four major sections - planning, operations, optimization and maintenance.

Planning

SharePoint design and deployment start with effective planning. Thorough planning leads to highly available, reliable, secure and scalable SharePoint based systems. Some of the key planning elements every SharePoint administrator must consider before deploying a server farm are:

  • Server roles -represents what services are running on the server. Each SharePoint farm contains servers performing web server role, application server role and database server role.

  • Service applications - set of services which could be shared across web applications in a farm or across multiple farms. The SharePoint administrator must plan to deploy only the required service applications and share services across farms, if possible.

  • Topologies - refers to the organization of servers in a farm. Based on tiers, there are single tier, two tiers and three tiers farms. Based on the size or number of servers in a farm, there are small, medium and large farms. The SharePoint administrator should plan for the right farm topology based on the organization needs.

  • Capacity planning - ensures that the given farm topology meets the performance targets and the hardware capacity boundaries. Some of the ways to accomplish this are by configuring servers, adding more servers in the farm, and adding another server farm.

  • Authentication - protect farm servers and web applications by configuring available authentication methods. The popular authentication providers are Windows, form-based, and Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) token-based.

Operations

Operations are an essential SharePoint administrative task. SharePoint provides a number of operations tools and techniques that a SharePoint administrator must be familiar with. Some of the important operations tools provided by SharePoint are:

  • Central administration - fully functional SharePoint site, providing all the operational and administrative tasks.

  • PowerShell - command-line tool and scripting language for the SharePoint administrative tasks and operations.

  • Health Analyzer - primary job of health analyzer is to examine the health of the server farm and report configuration errors, performance bottlenecks, security risks, availability recommendations and usage problems. The health analyzer operates using predefined health rules.

Optimization

Performance optimization plays a critical role in the smooth operation of SharePoint based systems. The SharePoint administrator must take effective measures to optimize the performance of the server farm. Some of the key optimization and performance control techniques are:

  • Throttling - controls overloading of server resources during peak usage times. When the server is in the throttling mode, all the current requests are processed. However, the new requests are denied and an error message is logged into the event viewer.

  • Large lists control - as the size of a list grows the execution time of the list queries also increases, resulting in poor list performance. Some of the controlling parameters are the number of user query results, the list warning level indicating that the list is getting close to the threshold limit, the number of query results allowed for the site administrators, and the maximum number of lookup columns each list could have.

  • Search engine optimization - refers to the process of sites and pages optimization for the search engine. Some of the recommendations for the search engine optimization are meaningful site URLs and page titles, accurate metadata elements, and text based navigation menus.

Maintenance

SharePoint administrator must perform the maintenance activities for protecting the server farm from becoming a victim of a catastrophic failure or disaster. Some of the key maintenance tools and techniques provided by the SharePoint are:

  • Backup and restore - backup could be performed at entire server farm, farm configuration database, site collections, subsites and lists.

  • SQL mirroring - protects the content database from a catastrophic failure.

  • SQL snapshots - read-only and static copy of a database.

  • Database maintenance - routinely check the database integrity, defragment indexes, set optimal fill factor for the database servers, and monitor the database size and shrink it to recover the unused space.

  • Upgrades - upgrading from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013 can be done by two main methods, in-place upgrade and database attach.

  • Patching - refers to updating the SharePoint server to the latest build.



AngularJS

AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML's syntax to express your application's components clearly and succinctly. AngularJS's data binding and dependency injection eliminate much of the code you would otherwise have to write.

AngularJS is a MVC framework that defines numerous concepts to properly organize your web application. Your application is defined with modules that can depend from one to the others. It enhances HTML by attaching directives to your pages with new attributes or tags and expressions in order to define very powerful templates directly in your HTML.

AngularJS helps you structure and test your Javascript code very easily. Finally, utility code can easily be factorized into services that can be injected in your controllers.

Advantages

  • AngularJS provides capability to create Single Page Application in a very clean and maintainable way.

  • Angular analyses the page DOM and builds the bindings based on the Angular-specific element attributes. That requires less writing, the code is cleaner, easier to understand and less error prone.

  • Extended features such as dependency injection, routing, animations, view orchestration, and more.

  • Supported by IntelliJ IDEA and Visual Studio .NET IDEs.

  • AngularJS is a comprehensive solution for rapid front-end development. It does not need any other plugins or frameworks.

  • AngularJS is unit testing ready, and that is one of its most compelling advantages.

  • No need to use observable functions.

  • Developer write less code and get more functionality.



Asp.Net MVC

MVC.NET is a framework especially designed for web applications through which applications are developed by executing the three roles i.e. Model, View and Controller. Model is comprised of data access, validation rules and other aggregation logic. View hides the complexity and provides a simple user interface for displaying necessary information. And third component Controller actually controls the flow and logic of application. ASP.NET MVC is a platform that is being extensively used for the development of SEO-friendly URLs that increases the hit rate of that particular application. This framework is also being commonly used for the Test Driven Development (TDD) applications. Scripting languages like JavaScript and other jQuery and AJAX components can be integrated with its application to make more and more rich applications.

MVC.NET Advantage There are certain plus points in using ASP.NET MVC development but major advantages are as under:

  • It provides the full control over rendered HTML scenario. There is provision of transparent separation of concerns SoC.

  • Another big advantage is having the provision of test driven development (TDD).

  • It’s very much easy in integrating the applications with other scripting frameworks like JavaScript.

  • This technology uses the design and architecture of stateless web nature, and another advantage which makes an application more popular and traffic generating is using SEO techniques by MVC.NET framework.

  • There are no ViewState and PostBack events in it that ensures the non-complexity nature of the application.
