The Product Feature Matrix

The first installation decision you'll make is to select the appropriate SharePoint product for your implementation. In general, Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 offers only collaboration tools, but is covered by the operating system license. SharePoint Server 2007 is offered in two editions: Standard and Enterprise. The binaries installed are the same for both the Standard and Enterprise editions, but some features are disabled in the Standard edition. The same installation source is used for both editions, and the choice of Standard or Enterprise is determined by the Product Key entered during installation. An installation of Standard Edition can be upgraded to Enterprise in Central Administration without performing additional installation. To change from Enterprise to Standard however requires an uninstall and reinstall of the product. Table 5-1 provides a feature comparison of Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 and the two versions of SharePoint Server 2007.
