Question Answered By: Taylor Mills   on Oct 09

For a moment, skipping over the term "document management", SharePoint Portal Server 2003 server farm  architecture addresses WRoyce's requirements:

- 60K users
- 30+ locations  worldwide
- 20 datacenters
- high availability, no single  point-of-failure server farm architecture
- ability for each datacenter to store locally produced documents  with access  to organization's documents world-wide
- enterprise-wide search
- federation of central portal, division, group, team and personal sites using SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Shared Services (although there are caveats about using Shared Services over WANs)

Ask your Microsoft rep for a copy of 2 new customer-ready MS IT Showcase white papers:
"Microsoft Web enterprise  Portal"
"Deploying SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Shared Services at Microsoft"

Each white paper is about 32 pages long. These whitepapers are in the process of being published to Microsoft.com and will be available on the MS IT Showcase site: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/itshowcase.

Back to SharePoint 2003's document collaboration features:

1. Document checkout/checkin is supported (locking).
2. Version numbering is supported limited to major version numbers: 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, etc. Minor version numbers aren't supported.
3. Single-step "moderator" approval is supported. No serial, parallel or built-in customizable approval routing.

These features are baked into Windows SharePoint Services and available in SharePoint Portal Server 2003.
