Running Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 on VMware Infrastructure

Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) 2007 is one of Microsoft’s fastest growing server products. MOSS 2007 provides a highly-integrated applications platform that hosts a number of different collaboration and document management services. VMware and its partners have done significant testing to evaluate behavior and develop best practices for virtualizing MOSS deployments on VMware Infrastructure (VI). Our experience shows that all tiers in complex three-tier MOSS 2007 solutions can be successfully virtualized using VMware Infrastructure:

  • MOSS 2007 scales well in virtual architectures, with more flexibility in design and deployment than in purely physical implementations.
  • MOSS 2007 performance in a virtualized infrastructure is on par with performance in physical server deployments.
  • Virtualizing the SQL Server database required for MOSS operation provides the advantages of higher availability and more flexible deployment without performance penalties, when basic best practices for system design are followed.
  • The core benefits of VMware Infrastructure: higher consolidation, built-in availability, rapid provisioning, rapid application development lifecycles, enhanced security and dynamic scalability are all readily leveraged in a MOSS deployment on VMware Infrastructure.
In this document, we describe the implementation and best practices for virtualizing a typical mediumsized MOSS 2007 intranet farm deployment. We also have included results from tests run to measure and validate Web Front End (WFE), Query, Index, and SQL Server performance for this solution. While the solution described here is for a medium-size MOSS 2007 farm deployment, tests were also performed to validate both scale-up and scale-out techniques that could be used to support much larger MOSS farm deployments. This data would be useful in the design of a modular MOSS solution on a much larger scale.
