SharePoint 2013 Standard vs. Enterprise vs. Foundation Feature Comparison Matrix

SharePoint 2013 Standard vs. Enterprise vs. Foundation Feature Comparison Matrix

I am really trying to get a grasp on all of the features that exist and don’t exist in the various versions of SharePoint 2013 including Foundation, Standard and Enterprise for on-premises deployments.  Microsoft hasn’t specifically published an article which talks to this like they did for SharePoint 2010 (refer to my blog post here).  However, they did publish an article detailing a comparison of all of the features of SharePoint Online for the new Microsoft Office Customer Preview (i.e. SharePoint 2013 Preview) along with the various Office 365 and SharePoint online subscription plans. 

Unlike SharePoint 2010 where Microsoft used the following categories to separate their feature sets:

  • Sites
  • Communities
  • Content
  • Search
  • Insights
  • Composites

For SharePoint 2013, Microsoft has split their feature sets by the following categories:

  • Developer
  • IT Professional
  • Content
  • Insights
  • Search
  • Sites
  • Social
  • Add-ons

In this comparison, one of the options they had was the feature availability across on-premise solutions, which I am assuming is the comparison I need (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj819267.aspx).  For ease of reading, I have put all of the features in a chart, incorporated the feature description, and highlighted or greyed out some of the key differences in the features that stand out such as :

  • Features that are missing in Standard vs. Enterprise
  • Features that are not available at all on SharePoint Online
  • Features that are only available in SharePoint Online

Disclaimer: As SharePoint 2013 RTM has just been released, I’m sure there are still updates being made so please refer to the above TechNet article(s) for any extra information required as well as updates. Microsoft states that some values in this article may not represent the final values for SharePoint Server 2013 and that they will update the article with appropriate values as data becomes more generally available.
