SharePoint 2013 has legs. It’s out there and Fpweb.net even gets you to the latest version of SharePoint for free!
Microsoft has made some major investments in the platform to help you forget it’s been three years since the last major upgrade. Now, armed with customer feedback and experiences aplenty, Microsoft has rolled out SharePoint 2013 – new, improved and armed to the teeth with scalability and reliability enhancements.
Also, as you’ve heard, SharePoint 2013 is a social animal. Already known as a collaboration workhorse, SharePoint looks to identify with an increasingly social network-infused world by introducing familiar features like personal newsfeeds, follows, likes and more that can be used to link with anything or anyone in SharePoint. The impressive social upgrades concede a world where mobile devices are the future and looks to support any tablet or device as well as wrap their arms around cloud collaboration.
So, are you ready to take your business to SharePoint 2013? It’s never that easy is it? Planning, investing, training, etc. all have to be taken into consideration. Sure, we’d all love to be on the latest version of a product, but it’s not like someone will just get us there for free… or is it? SPOILER ALERT: Yes, it is. Fpweb.net is offering free SharePoint migrations to any SharePoint version you like this January. It’s a deal you can’t pass up.
Here are two immediate benefits:
1.) The cost savings of upgrading SharePoint for free.
2.) Being under the protective wing of the Fpweb.net SharePoint Cloud (which means managed SharePoint, expert support, and a reliable network).
Compare SharePoint 2010 vs. SharePoint 2013
Many of us have only just moved our infrastructure to 2010 so we’ll need a bit more of a push to get to the latest version of SharePoint 2013. Well, Fpweb.net has committed to making it easy… and FREE. We know that updates don’t guarantee improvements, so we wanted to show you the differences between SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013. Changes to development, social, search and management make a big difference in SharePoint 2013 and coupled with the new scalability of the architecture, deserve your consideration. Here’s a handy comparison chart to identify the differences between the SharePoint versions:

SharePoint 2010 vs. SharePoint 2013 Scalability Boundaries and Limits
So it’s clear that SharePoint 2013 brings a vast amount of changes from the SharePoint 2010 platform but what do we know specifically about the performance and scalability optimizations in the latest version? Thanks to the SharePoint Online’s influence on the new architecture of SharePoint 2013, enhanced scalability and reliability is accomplished with shredded storage, request management, the new Cloud App Model, SQL optimization and a new search architecture. Here we compare SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013’s scalability limits:
Compare SharePoint Server 2013 Standard and SharePoint 2013 Server Enterprise Editions
Finally, we wanted to give you an idea of the different functionality and capabilities between SharePoint 2013 Server Standard and SharePoint 2013 Server Enterprise. Obviously, both editions build on top of SharePoint Foundation, but Server Standard adds social, WCM, workflow and search features, while Server Enterprise adds to Standard with Access Services and Visio Services as well as BI, Records Management and E Discovery.
