For the management infrastructure for launchin g and running worker processes on the web server are also depends on IIS 6.0. A part from all, one of the important features of share point is its platform flex ibility. It can be scaled down to operate from one machine or can be managed acr oss hundreds of machines.

Whereas SHARE-POINT has overcome these problems therefore Share Point has became the mos t extensively used desktop application for grouped organizations.
