  •  12 servers per pool80,000 users per pool (6,660 per server)Server specs: 32Gb RAM, “8 or more 10,000-RPM hard disk drives with at least 72 GB free disk space”, dual Gig NICs(teamed)Max single conference=250 usersLarge conferences supported(250-1000) by separate 2 server A/V poolRemote users… 12,000 users per Edge server
  • Why?Scale-out:Lync 2010: ~80K users/pool, ~8-10 Front-Ends/poolBack-end SQL bottleneck: Presence subscriptions & notificationsDeploying & managing SQL instances is expensiveImprove high availability SLAServer maintenance scenariosAutomatic Pool Health managementLync 2013 Architecture for High Availability and scalabilityFEs manage user stateFEs loosely coupled with BE; “lazy writes” for rehydration and disaster recoveryUsers are partitioned into “UserGroups” automaticallyEach UserGroup is assigned to 3 Front Ends (primary, secondary, tertiary).3 copies of each user’s data are stored on FEs through replication When one FE “dies,” user groups are automatically transitioned to a secondaryScale-out ~20 Front Ends per poolCollocation on the Front-end New architecture allows AVMCU collocation and traffic spread across FECollocation on FE and Edge of the XMPP Gateway service
  • While we delivered High Availability and Disaster Recovery options in Lync 2010 and previous releases, we continuing feedback from customer has been that these capabilities are critical, but that we could do some work to help make this capability easier to deploy, and that we could reduce the capital and operational expenditures needed to enable these critical functions.Some specific feedback was that the stretched pool approach to delivering metro site resiliency was difficult to deploy, and that there was a need to have an idea what SLAs could be supported with the various HA/DR approaches.To this end we have made several investments in HA and DR:Decreasing the cost of HA/DRWe made investments in removing our dependency on SQL clustering and SAN-based storage and removing dependencies on metro site resiliency for DR using SQL Mirroring and specific real-time SQL replicationEnhancing service resiliencySupport for auto failover / fallback for pool backend failuresFull UC enterprise grade support including presence, voice and conferencing resiliency as part of our pool pairing approach to DRFaster recoveryThe paired pool approach allows us to target failover recovery times between 5 and 30 minutes for recovery from catastrophic outages. Automatic failover can be scriptedThis is achieved by peering identical pools where 50% of the users are split across the 2 poolsDeployment of HA/DR-ready infrastructure will be easier for customers and partners due to integration across our deployment and manageability tools, for HA/DR support from end-to-endPlanning toolTopology builderLync Server Control PanelSystem center for alarmingPowerShell
  • Enables IT departments to reduce costs and improve operational efficiencyLync supports virtualized servers, using the hypervisor of your choice, across a fully distributed topology Enables administrators to minimize the server footprint and reduce the time for deployment and maintenanceAll workloads are supported including: Enterprise Voice, Conferencing and IM/PresenceImproved Windows Server hyper-V capabilitiesWindows Server 2012 supportIncrease virtual memory and dynamic memory supportIncreased resource mapping between physical and virtual deployment (core, RAM, etc…)Removal of CPU count limit from 4 to 8 coresHyper-V over SMB3 with RDMASingle Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV) Network SupportQoS Minimum Bandwidth (Fair Share)Diskless Network Boot with iSCSI TargetNIC Teaming (LBFO) SupportIPSec OffloadHypervisor of your choice that are validated through the SVVP program
  • Virtual Desktop Infrastructure, or VDI, is one of the areas in which we have invested significantly in order to enable the client virtualization scenarios our customers are looking to deploy with Lync. Our virtual client support is targeted to deliver enterprise-grade Audio/video communications in remote desktop environments, be easy to deploy and manage, and continue to deliver a robust Lync user experience and feature set.The overall approach that we are taking is to used media redirection to separate the audio and video streams from the other signaling, allowing the “thin” client to do encoding / decoding of audio and video locally rather than round-tripping this process to and from a remote desktop server. This results in low bandwidth consumption, higher server scalability, and an optimal user experience (compared to other options such as device remoting or codec compression). The approach is platform independent, and is targeted to work across Vmware, Citrix, and Microsoft based VDI deployments (and we are working with each of these platform partners to enable support). On the hardware side we are working with partners to enable support of thin clients.Deployment of the Lync VDI Plugin for thin clients is via an enterprise administrator packaged image, and for thick clients from the customer’s download center.Supported features includeInstant Messaging (IM)/Presence AudioVideoData collaboration Office/line-of-business (LOB) application integrationDevice integrationAutomatic device selectionHuman Interface Devices (HID) (including multiple HID)Click to join online meetingsMode and participant escalationsCall Admission Control (CAC), Call Park, Media Bypass, E911, Location…Some features that will not be supported in Lync 2013 include Multi-view video, recording, and call continuity in the case of network outages.

  • Lync storage service is a new architecture for storage and exchange data across services. It helps to improve IT efficiency in several areas:Exchange Archiving- Requires Exchange 2013 but can still use w14 archiving model based on SQL Server archiving storage- Archiving Policy: Lync honors mailbox hold policy from Exchange- IM Archiving: Lync archives IM data to ExchangeEnd-user accesses IM conversations in Exchange conversation history folderCompliance admin discovers and preserves IM content using Exchange compliance toolsMeeting archiving: Lync archives Meeting content to ExchangeCompliance Admin discovers and preserves meeting content using Exchange compliance toolsExchange 2013 contact storeThis feature solve the problem of disjoint contact list, broken search or mobile platform inconsistency. It also solve the UX issues and framework challenges. For example: some contacts in Phone contact store, some duplicated in apps (Lync), some not in contact store but in an app (MyOffice, MySite followers).Now Lync providesSame People card across Lync and Office and allows to update themSame favorites and buddy List across Lync, Outlook, OWADe-duped and aggregated people searchHigh-resolution photos Exchange is the unified contact store across Office in Lync 2013Enabled by policy when Exchange 2013 is deployedLync 2013 clients work with Exchange 14All Lync 2013 clients will go to Exchange 2013 for storing, retrieving, and updating of contacts Legacy clients (Lync clients, Exchange 14 devices, web and mobile clients) will remain in sync (read access only)Monitoring service is now collocated on the front end and connecting to a single database, removing the need to manage another server role.
