This diagram shows the platforms on which SharePoint Server and SharePoint Foundation are built.

  • The boxes with a blue fill represent independent platforms and each depends on the platforms below it.
  • The empty boxes inside the larger boxes are selected important subparts or features of the platform.
  • The thin downward arrows indicate selected dependency relations. Not every sub-platform or dependency relation is shown.
  • The thicker, green, sideways arrows indicate that one entity accesses the entity to which the arrow points. Again, only some selected access relationships are shown.
