SharePoint 2010 Preliminary Requirements

Some details have started to come out about the requirements for SharePoint 2010.

Running it:

  • It can only be installed on 2008 Server
  • It will only be released in 64-bit, which means…
  • You can either install it on Windows 2008 64-bit OR Windows 2008 R2 64-bit

Information Store:

  • You can only use SQL 2005 OR 2008
  • ONLY 64-bit versions of SQL 2005 or 2008 will be supported

Using it:

  • You can only author content using a Windows machine and IE 7, IE 8 or (wait for it) Firefox 3 (I know, no way, right?) – Essentially the Browser MUST be XHTML 1.0 Compliant.
  • IE 6 will continue to be supported as a level 2 browser, along with FF 1.5, 2, Safari 3, etc… also IE 7, 8 and FF 3 will be supported as Level 2 browsers on other Operating systems (although they indicate that they’re working on removing the restriction on the OS).

About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
