    About Me
  • 3. It Depends!
  • 4. Considerations
    SLAs
    Users
    Authentication
    Licensing
    Location
    Hardware
    Software (client and server)
    SQL Server
    SharePoint Features
    Information Architecture
    Staff / Roles
  • 5. 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
  • 6. 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
  • 7. 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?
  • 8. 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? …….
