Site and solution governance (SharePoint Server 2010)
Applies to: SharePoint Server 2010
This section provides information about governing sites and solutions for both production and sandboxed Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 environments.
Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that guide, direct, and control how an organization's business divisions and IT teams cooperate to achieve business goals.
Sandboxed solutions restrict access to network and local resources to provide greater security and stability. You can use sandboxed solutions for load balancing solutions, for solutions that have not been fully tested, and for deploying user solutions in a hosted environment. Sandboxed solutions run in a separate worker thread so that they cannot access resources that belong to other solutions, and they have limited access to local and network resources.
