New Solution Accelerator’s for SharePoint

Filed under: SharePoint Technology — adamclark @ 10:23 am

For the first time in a number of months I find that I have a little spare bandwidth to be reviewing some RSS feeds while I am travelling home on the train. Of particular interest is Joel Olesn’s Post from the weekend around three new Solutions Accelerators for SharePoint.

  • SharePoint Asset Inventory Toolkit– Beta Announcement – “This solution accelerator contains assessment an tool for discovering the presence and use of WSS and MOSS sites in the network environment.”  This is a discovery type tool based on the Vista Assessment tool.  It will find various SharePoint deployments via a few different ways and help you inventory the web apps and sites.  It’s something that can be scheduled and uses SQL Reporting Services for reports. (Beta bits planned for September)
  • SharePoint Capacity Planning Tool Beta Announcement – “This program previews a new Solution Accelerator for SharePoint Enterprise capacity planning.  This solution accelerator contains two new models for WSS and MOSS on Windows 2003 for System Center Capacity Planner (SCCP).” There is an executive overview of the solution in a PPT.  This program will leverage the System Center Capacity Planner framework to help customers better design hardware and server toplogies for SharePoint Intranet and Internet deployments. (Beta bits are planned for September)
  • SharePoint Manageability Toolkit– Beta Announcement – “This solution accelerator includes a new set of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007 (Ops Manager), Management Packs for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, and for Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.”  These are new management packs with new functionality designed for SCOM 2007.  You’ll find more information about the manageability toolkit on the SharePoint blog on this. (Beta bits available soon)
