​​​SharePoint 2016 at Rackspace

​SharePoint 2016 is a foundational release for Microsoft that builds on the success of their cloud based Office 365 offering, extending that power into on-premises dedicated SharePoint farms. This is the first version of SharePoint to be created by Microsoft with a “cloud first" mentality meaning that it shares a common codebase with Microsoft's Office 365 SharePoint Online product. As the founda​tion for the future of SharePoint, Microsoft can use this common codebase to deliver new and exciting features more rapidly than previous versions of SharePoint.

SharePoint 2016 is also fully hybrid enabled, allowing on-premises SharePoint to connect seamlessly with Office 365. Let our expert SharePoint engineers guide you through your hybrid journey so that your business can have the best of the cloud married to the rock solid base that dedicated SharePoint Server provides.
