Tech Talk with Bill Baer

Join the conversation as the one-and-only Bill Baer (@williambaer), Senior Technical Product Manager and Microsoft Certified Master for SharePoint in the SharePoint product group, leads a bi-weekly “ask me anything” discussion on Unity Vision by IT Unity. Bill will discuss new updates to Office 365 and SharePoint and provide his expert insight about how you and your organization can successfully implement the technologies on-prem, in the cloud, and everywhere in between. Each show will also include a chance for you to “ask Bill anything,” so bring your questions and join in!

In this webisode of Tech Talk with Bill Baer, Bill lays out the detail of MinRole—the new feature of SharePoint Server 2016 that automatically configures a server for a specific role in the farm, then monitors the health and configuration of the server to keep it compliant with the specifications of the role. MinRole not only minimizes the footprint of a SharePoint server, it also reduces the surface for security vulnerabilities and focuses the scope of updates and patches. MinRole is the direct product of the learning Microsoft has gained by running SharePoint in Office 365 and, as promised, those lessons learned are being added to the on-premises product to improve the manageability and performance of SharePoint Server. Dive into MinRole and, as always, “Ask Bill Anything”! Live, online, and only on Unity Vision by IT Unity.
