Please join and learn about planning Microsoft Exchange implementations on AWS. You will learn the architectural considerations and steps involved to plan and deploy an Exchange Server 2010-based messaging service in the AWS cloud, including available tools to automate deployment. We will highlight the recently published "Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 in the AWS Cloud: Planning & Development Guide", which discusses topics and configuration steps relevant before and after launching the necessary AWS services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) to run a high availability and site resilient Exchange architecture.

You will learn:
• How to plan, design, deploy and test Microsoft Exchange solutions built on AWS elastic infrastructure
• Performance monitoring in cloud-based scenarios
• Deployment automation using AWS CloudFormation and Microsoft PowerShell

Who should read:
• Exchange Developers and Administrators, Solution Architects, Technical Project Managers, Security Ops

Presenter: Ulf Schoo, Microsoft Solution Architect, Amazon Web Services

    AWS Webcast - MS Exchange Implementation & Planning on AWS AWS Webcast - MS Exchange Implementation & Planning on AWS Presentation Transcript

    • Microsoft Exchange Server in the AWS Cloud Planning & Implementation Guide Presented by Wayne Saxe Content by Shankar Sivadasan & Ulf Schoo Deck by Colin White 1
    • Introduction MS Exchange Server is one of the most mission-critical messaging platforms in the enterprise today. It provides email, scheduling, and tools for custom collaboration across the organization. The AWS cloud provides a suite of infrastructure services that enable you to deploy Exchange Server in a highly available, affordable and fault-tolerant manner. By deploying an Exchange Server architecture in the AWS Cloud, customers can leverage the powerful functionality of Exchange along with the flexibility and security of AWS. The methodology and tools you use to design an Exchange Server deployment are the same whether the target platform is a physical, virtual, or cloud-based infrastructure. Always size Exchange Server deployments as though you plan to install them on dedicated physical hardware, while making sure to consider the performance characteristics of a shared computing environment. This presentation gives an overview of the process to create the example solution. It does not outline each step. For the detailed overview, please consult the whitepaper available here: http://aws.amazon.com/whitepapers/AWS_Exchange_Planning_Implementation/ 2
    • Before You Get Started This is an advanced topic. If you are new to AWS, please visit the “Getting Started with AWS” section of the Online Documentation Page on our website. You should also be familiar with the following topics: • • • • • Amazon EC2 and Amazon VPC Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server Active Directory and DNS Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) Microsoft Exchange Server 3
    • Microsoft Platform on AWS Microsoft “License Mobility through Software Assurance” gives Microsoft Volume Licensing customers the flexibility to deploy Windows Server applications with active Software Assurance (SA) on Amazon Web Services. • Partnership to support running Windows Server-based workloads on AWS • Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) with Windows Server and SQL Server today that were jointly developed by Microsoft and AWS • SharePoint Server and other Microsoft server products can be licensed to run on AWS *General info on AWS and License Mobility for a variety of MS server products: http://aws.amazon.com/windows/mslicensemobility/ Two licensing models: Pay-as-you-go – AMI pricing includes software BYOL – use existing licenses on AWS •Windows Server •SQL Server Standard •SQL Server Enterprise •SharePoint Server •Other qualifying Microsoft Windows Server products* Detail on AWS and License Mobility with SQL Server: http://aws.amazon.com/windows/mslicensemobility/sql/ 4

    • Conclusion The secure and reliable AWS cloud infrastructure enables highly available and site-resilient MS Exchange Server deployments In this presentation, we gave an overview of the steps to deploy Exchange Server in the AWS environment. Using the tools that you are already familiar with, we provided recommendations and planning tips to configure the environment based upon individual requirements and business needs. Also provided is a sample deployment scenario using AWS CloudFormation templates that help you launch in a few clicks. We highlighted several advanced topics that require careful consideration to successfully deploy Exchange Server on AWS with confidence. 17
    • Customer Success Stories Choice Logistics Banro Corp Case Study Case Study http://aws.amazon.com/solutions/case-studies/choicelogistics/ http://aws.amazon.com/solutions/case-studies/banro-corporation/ Webinar (replay) Banro is a Canadian gold mining company with exploration and development along a major gold belt in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). Traditional procurement would have required long lead times and high capex. It was not possible to estimate capacity or accurately plan the rollout of the 16+ software systems that executives expected to be running in less than a year. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcyBusOiO28 Choice Logistics manages a global logistics network of 800+ locations with a 99% SLA. They have many locations worldwide, and messaging services are critical to their business. This case study describes their migration from an on-premises Exchange 2007 solution to Exchange 2010 on the AWS cloud. "Using AWS makes it easy for us to resize instances and increase storage without having to go through a lengthy procurement cycle.“ – Tom Bentzen, Director of Information Systems “The pressure of rolling out key organization systems — including ERP, workflow systems, email systems, data warehouses, and reporting tools — required us to deploy these systems at our Twangiza mine site in the DRC, where we faced the hurdles of logistics and lack of infrastructure.” – Thorsten Neumann, Group IT Manager 18
