There are a myriad number of approaches to design and architecture of SharePoint servers, not all of which are ideal, however. Since the design of a SharePoint environment is subsequently critical to its performance and functionality, it is critical to understand what are the best practices around SharePoint infrastructure design. SharePoint architects need to be aware of the various installation options, how and when to virtualize SharePoint, ways to optimize the SQL Database tier of SharePoint, and how the newest version of SharePoint changes some of these best practices. This session goes right to the heart of the matter, providing for physical and virtual architecture guidelines and specific configuration settings that can immediately be used to construct best practice SharePoint 2010 environments that are well positioned for a future transition to SharePoint 2013. Real world advice obtained from the presenter’s experience designing hundreds of production SharePoint farms is provided, and the installation options are discussed frankly.

You will learn:

  • View real world SharePoint deployment models for environments of multiple sizes, including virtualized SharePoint farms
  • How the newest version of SharePoint changes some of the previous best practices and learn how to build an existing farm that will integrate well with some of those new concepts
  • Get information to be able to build an ideal highly available, high performance and scalable SharePoint 2010 environment that will stand the test of time
