  • Step 1: Model – Modelling is the process by which you decide the key solutions you want your environment to support, and establish all important metrics and parameters. Step 2: Design – Once you have gathered the data from Step 1, you can design your farm. Outputs are detailed data architecture and physical and logical topologies.Step 3: Pilot, Test and Optimize – If you have designed a new deployment, you need to deploy a pilot environment for testing against your workload and expected usage characteristicsStep 4: Deploy – This step describes implementing the farm, or deploying changes to an existing farm. Step 5: Monitor and maintain – This step describes how to set up monitoring, and how to predict and identify bottlenecks, as well as perform regular maintenance and bottleneck mitigation activities.
  • As an example using this rough guideline, SQL Server would be expected to devote 75 IOPS to a 100GB content database, or 375 IOPS for five content databases.  Analyzing one’s SQL Server, it may be necessary to split some content databases onto their own spindles in order to achieve this rate.

  • 5. SharePoint 2010 Architecture Planning Changes
  • 6. SharePoint 2010 Architecture PlanningUser Workloads
    • Capacity planning is similar to MOSS2007
    • 7. Usage now broken down by workload
    • 8. A workload is defined by the usage characteristics and the user base.
    • 9. We still need the following:
    • 10. Total Users (estimated)
    • 11. Active Users
    • 12. % Active Users
    • 13. Peak concurrent users
    • 14. % Peak concurrent users
    • 15. Don’t use the SharePoint System center capacity planning tool!!!
  • SharePoint 2010 Architecture PlanningCAPACITY MODEL
    • Try not to over/undersize deployment
    • 16. Determine peak demand benchmark
    • 17. Plan for unplanned peak ‘spikes’
    • 18. Use reference architectures as a starting point
    • 19. Stay within Microsoft recommended boundaries
  • 20. SharePoint 2010 Infrastructure Improvements
  • 21. SharePoint 2010 Infrastructure ImprovementsVersion and Edition Changes
  • 22. SharePoint 2010 Infrastructure ImprovementsService Applications
    • SSP concept replaced with Service Applications
    • 23. Each service runs independently, providing application isolation
    • 24. All SSP functionality moved to databases, so they can be consumed from multiple servers more easily
    • 25. New products use this framework
    • 26. Get-SPServiceApplicationcmdlet shows list of Service Applications
  • SharePoint 2010 Infrastructure ImprovementsSharePoint 2010 Databases (Part I)

    • New database size recommendations
    • 29. Collaboration or write-heavy workloads:  200 GB
    • 30. Document management or read-heavy workloads: 1 TB
    • 31. Rule of thumb for sizing content databases is 0.75 IOPS per GB. (separate spindles to achieve IOPS!!)
    • 32. Consider using Remote BLOB storage (RBS):
    • 33. Sites that contain large files that are infrequently accessed, such as knowledge repositories.
    • 34. Sites with terabytes of data.
    • 35. Sites that host video or media files.

    • 54. Distribute content across Site Collections from the beginning as well
    • 55. Allow your environment to scale and your users to ‘grow into’ their SharePoint site collections
    • 56. Consider MultiTenancy for hosting
  • Sample SP Logical Architecture
  • 57. RestructuringUpgrade / Migration
  • SharePoint 2010 Virtual Farm Architecture
  • 66. Can you Virtualize SharePoint 2010 Production Servers?
    Answer is yes, you can (it is supported), but with caveats
    Must architect the environment properly!
    Not taking into account Disk/Proc/Mem, and other host and guest environments can make a virtualized environment run slowly

  • 87. SharePoint Virtualization Support
  • 88. Microsoft Support of SharePoint Virtualization
    Microsoft’s official SharePoint support stance is that any SharePoint role or service is supported for hardware Virtualization, including SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008, or SQL Server 2008 R2. There are only three requirements for Virtualization that must be satisfied, these are as follows:
    Hardware-assisted Virtualization, which is available in processors that include a Virtualization option—specifically processors with Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel VT) or AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) technology.
    Hardware-enforced Data Execution Prevention (DEP) is available and enabled.
    Either deployed on Microsoft Hyper-V (RTM or R2 version) or a validated third-party hypervisor that is part of the Server Virtualization Validation Program (SVVP) – KB 897615
  • 89. Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V
  • 90. Hyper-V R2 for SP2010Overview
  • 91. System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2
  • 92. Virtualization Host and Guest Management Platform
    Part of the System Center Management Suite, which includes the following:
    System Center Operations Manager 2007
    System Center Data Protection Manager 2007
    System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2
    System Center Mobile Device Manager 2007
    System Center Essentials 2007
    System Center Capacity Planner 2007
    System Center Service Manager 2010
    System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM)
  • 93. New version out (VMM 2008 R2)
    VMM 2008 R2 has P2V (Physical to virtual migration) and V2V (VMware Guest migration to Hyper-V) tools
    For SharePoint, allows for creation of SharePoint template servers that can be quickly provisioned for test farms or for new farm members in production
    Can manage both Hyper-V and VMware guests (though must ‘go through’ a Virtual Center server to manage VMware guests.)
    Self-Service Portal allows end users and remote admins to be able to provision their own virtual machines based on templates
    PowerShell support allows for scripted provisioning of SharePoint 2010 or other servers into a farm
    System Center Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) 2008 R2
  • 94. Quick SP2010 Farm Provisioning with VMM 2008 R2
    Create new Virtual Guest (Windows Server 2008 R2)
    Install SP2010 Binaries. Stop before running Config Wizard
    Turn Virtual Guest into Template, modify template to allow it to be added into domain
    Add PowerShell script to run on first login, allowing SP to be added into farm or to create new farm
    Voila! 15 minute entire farm provisioning…

  • 97. Summary
    Understand how to use the Service Application architecture of SharePoint 2010
    Plan for a distributed data model, especially for document management enviroments
    If considering virtualization of SharePoint, make sure to architect host/guest environment properly
