  • There are only two options for the SharePoint 2010 installer: a standalone single-server instance or as part of a farm of servers. A server farm allows you to scale out a SharePoint system, as well as providing redundancy and load balancing.

  • Once SharePoint 2010 has been installed, a configuration wizard automates the setup process, creating SharePoint's content and configuration databases, as well as an initial site to get users started.


  • You can create your own SharePoint templates with SharePoint Designer 2010, but the bundled library of site templates gets you started quickly. It can be used to add a self-service option to keep the administrative load to a minimum.
