Have you thought about enabling a scenario that surfaces content stored on both SharePoint Online/O365 and your on-Premise deployments? This session showcases scenarios for running a multi-machine fault-tolerant SharePoint Farm hosted on Microsoft’s Windows Azure cloud hosting Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution. The discussion will touch on how to leverage virtual machines (VHDs) to quickly deploy a SharePoint instance in the cloud as well as what it takes to build rich search experience capabilities in a Search-as-a-Service (“SeaaS”) solution. Some of the technologies at play in the accompanying demo will include, FAST Search, SharePoint, Windows Azure and more.
