- Create and configure the required domain accounts
- Slipstream the latest SQL Server 2014 CU into the installation files
- Optimize SQL Server 2014 for SharePoint 2013
- Install SharePoint 2013 and perform the initial Farm configuration
In this step-by-step Screencast , we demonstrate how to install SharePoint 2013 Foundation on Server 2012 R2. In addition, we demonstrate in details the installation, configuration, and optimization of SQL Server 2014 Express for SharePoint 2013 on a separate Windows 2012 R2 member server, which is the so called two-tier deployment.
SharePoint 2013 Foundation and SQL Server 2104 Express are both free editions and come with certain limitations. As you will see in our demo, the SQL Server 2014 Express memory limits are actually higher than the official 1GB buffer cache per instance. In addition, implementing Remote Blob Storage (using the FileStream provider) allows documents and files to be stored on the file system instead of inside the database itself. As a result, you get improved performance, and you get past the 10GB per database SQL express limit for your content databases. To keep things simple, we will demonstrate configuring Remote Blob Storage with SharePoint 2013 using SQL Server 2014 Express in a separate Screencast.
