in our organisation we use wss 3.0 for out intranet. SharePoint usage has grown in recent months and the intranet itself is great. It consists of: 1 WFE; 1 SQL; 1 WebApp; 1 Root Site Collection;
We recently created a template site to be used for each of our projects (in the last month 28 project sites have been created).
My personal opinion is that these sites should not be created in the root site collection but instead put into there own site collection for example sites/projects1/ and then site/projects2, gradually creating new site collections are they fill-up.
Could any one recommend or suggest the best configuration for this?
