There has been quite a lot of content written on Microsoft’s capacity recommendations for SharePoint 2010 and how various aspects can affect overall SharePoint performance. Several recommendations Microsoft makes have to do with how content is structured, and with how permissions are managed. These recommendations are important to understand, both in practice and within the wider context of other SharePoint recommendations and limits, because SharePoint performance for end users can be significantly impacted by badly structured content libraries or over-use of metadata or unique permissions.
The TITUS SharePoint Security Suite has been designed to work well within the limitations and recommendations Microsoft has published on libraries and lists within SharePoint. I’ll discuss some of these recommendations here, how they relate to TITUS Security Suite products, and what they mean in practice. For the full list of capacity and performance recommendations on SharePoint 2010, please refer to Microsoft’s extensive documentation on the subject: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262971.aspx.
