Farewell to SharePoint Foundation server


Although I spend 99% of my time working with SharePoint Online these days I still have a soft spot for SharePoint Foundation server, give my roots in Small Business Server (SBS).

Microsoft have confirmed a new version of SharePoint Server on premises but as you can see from the above tweet it would appear that the free version (Foundation) is being discontinued going forward. Not surprising really and something I have been telling people for a while.

The solution for SMB clients now is really Office 365 and SharePoint Online. It gives them access to the full enterprise suite of SharePoint at a low per month cost. For bang for you buck, it can’t be matched.

Farewell SharePoint Foundation server and thank you.
