      About Me
    • It Depends!
    • Considerations
      SLAs
      Users
      Authentication
      Licensing
      Location
      Hardware
      Software (client and server)
      SQL Server
      SharePoint Features
      Information Architecture
      Staff / Roles
    • SLAs
      SLAs affect everything
      Recovery plan
      Topology
      Server spec
      At least:
      Approx Users
      Max down time (RTO)
      Max data loss (RPO)
      Item Level Recovery
      Disaster Recovery
      High Availability
    • SLAs
      Define RTO/RPO targets and design a solution to meet these
      RTO (Recovery Time Objective)
      Maximum acceptable duration of time of system inoperability (Downtime)
      RPO (Recovery Point Objective)
      Maximum amount of acceptable data loss
    • Users
      Who are your users?
      You know them individually (Intranet)
      You know them as partners/customers (Extranet)
      You don’t know them (Internet)
      Define who will be using the system
      How will they use it?
      Which browsers?
      Mobile?
      Where are your users base?
      Local?, Global?, Both?
      How many users?
      How will they be using it?
    • Authentication
      How will you authenticate your users?
      Depends largely on previous slide
      Classic Authentication
      Active Directory authenticates a user, provides an NT Token. The token is used to authenticate to SharePoint. SharePoint consumes that token and it's converted into an SPUser object for authorization
      Claims Authentication
      SharePoint redirects a client to the associated trusted identity provider. The identity provider authenticates clients and provides a security token e.g.
      NT, SAML, FBA
      Kerberos – when and why would you need it? …….
    • Licensing
      Foundation
      Standard
      Enterprise
      CALs vs External Connector
    • Location
      On Premise vs Hosted?
      Capacity?
      Staff / Administrators
      Skills
      Costs
      Worry
      Next session may help
    • Hardware

      List all possible scenarios and plan for each one with SLAs in mind
      Hardware, Software, User error, environmental etc
      Backup Tools
      SharePoint vs SQL
      3rd Party?
      Hosted – do you need to worry?
    • Recovery Plan
      High Availability
      Servers
      Services
      Topology
      Load Balancing solution
