SharePoint 2016 may be the newest version of SharePoint but not everyone will immediately make the jump to SharePoint 2016. In fact many organizations are still running earlier versions of SharePoint as far back as SharePoint 2007. Some organizations just choose not to change. Some organizations have invested a lot of time and money on mission critical configurations and customizations and choose not to upgrade. Regardless of the reason to not upgrade to newer and supported versions of SharePoint, Aptillon has you covered. We have a long history with SharePoint going back to SharePoint Portal Server 2001 and SharePoint Team Services and we regularly work on and maintain SharePoint farms, including SharePoint 2007, 2010, and 2013, as well as the newly released SharePoint 2016.
At Aptillon we work on all types of SharePoint environments from SharePoint 2007 to SharePoint 2016, On-Premises, Cloud and Hybrid, and when it comes to on-premises deployments, we have all sorts of configurations that we have worked with including self-hosted and IaaS deployments using services such as Microsoft Azure. Being responsible for so many different environments and configurations means that it is critical to not only pay attention to obscure Microsoft KB articles but to also analyze them with great scrutiny to be certain that we understand the impact to our various clients. Recently our team noticed some very interesting language in the Azure-based KB article, Microsoft server software support for Microsoft Azure virtual machines: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2721672.

I’m doing a full day session at the upcoming Philly Code Camp (October 10, 2015, Philly MTC in Malvern – more information). Registration is only $76 and includes breakfast and lunch, raffles, guaranteed admission to the Saturday regular Code Camp (which will sell out), and more. Register here.
I’ve been pretty slow to learning how to use github for the management of my open source projects but I’ve finally managed to take the time to at least learn enough so that I could move my main projects over. I don’t know that I’ve got everything done exactly the way it should be as I kind of stumbled through it a bit but I think what I’ve got so far should be a good start for anyone who wants to download the releases or see or contribute to the source.
