  • Before SharePoint Documents  are  managed  through  email  and  file  shares.   Challenges  with  collaboraLon  and  knowledge  sharing.   Lack  of  control  over  security,  privacy,  and  compliance.   Content  is  difficult  to  find  and  share.   How  do  I  share  informaLon  with  clients  and  partners?   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 4 View slide
  • Centralized SharePoint Local  users  are  happy.  CollaboraLon  increases.   What  about  distant  or  remote  users?   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 5
  • Centralized Global Architecture Source:  Global  Architectures  for  SharePont  Server  2013,  MicrosoC   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 6
  • Challenges for Distributed User Base Keeping  distant  users  engaged  and  acLve.   Making  content  available  during  disrupLons.   Sharing  informaLon  with  partners  and  clients.   Providing  fast  conLnuous  access  to  content  to  all  users.   Will  your  network  support  global  access?   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 7
  • Microsoft Recommends Redesigning  pages  for  faster  downloads.   Using  WAN  accelerators.   OpLmizing  the  network.   ...  costly  soluLons  that  mask  the  real  problem.     Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 8
  • Centralized Content Centralizing  your  content  increases  your  risk  for   unavailable  SharePoint  caused  by  a  disrupLon.   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 9

  • Back to Where you Started…. Documents  are  managed  through  email  and  file  shares.   Challenges  with  collaboraLon  and  knowledge  sharing.   Lack  of  control  over  security,  privacy,  and  compliance.   Content  is  difficult  to  find  and  share.   How  do  I  share  informaLon  with  clients  and  partners?   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 11
  • SharePoint Availability “Enterprises  today  must  be     always  on  and  always     available  to  an  extended     network  of  customer,     employees,  and  partners…   organizaLons  must  evolve     beyond  reacLve  business     conLnuity  and  IT     disaster  recovery”   Rachel  A.  Dines   SENIOR  ANALYST   SERVING  INFRASTRUCTURE  &   OPERATIONS  PROFESSIONALS     Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 12
  • Operational Consequences Confidence?   ReputaLon?   CompeLLon?   If  SharePoint  is  mission  criLcal,  then  what   happens  to  your  business  when  it’s  not   available?   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 13
  • Disconnected Farms Microsoft: “Deploying more than one farm greatly increases complexity.” Siloed  content.   This  is  the  problem  we’re  trying  to  solve,  not  a  soluLon.   Replicate  user  profile  and  My  Site  content.   Incomplete  soluLon,  since  this  is  not  mission  criLcal.   Distribute  search  indexes.   Gets  faster  search  results,  but  doesn’t  help  with   accessing  the  content.   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 14

  • Need For Global Architecture Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 16
  • A Better Way “Server replication far outshines hardware acceleration when it comes to transferring SharePoint data across the pond. Hardware acceleration is only as fast as the bandwidth allowed by foreign company governances. Replication, on the other hand, virtually guarantees instant access to SharePoint data. Since data is stored locally, the replicated environment is beyond the choke point of foreign company policy.” David Pileggi Jr., Consultant Insight Technology Solutions Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 17
  • Introducing Metalogix Replicator # 1 SharePoint Synchronization •  Global  Office  LocaLons   •  Offshore/Offline  access     •  Intranet/Extranet  Sync   •  High  Availability/DR   ü  Immediate,  live,  bidirec.onal  replica.on  for  all   SharePoint  types   ü  Synchronize  across  large,  dispersed,  mul.-­‐farm   SharePoint  deployments   ü  ReplicaLon  across  mul.ple  SharePoint  versions   (2007,  2010,  and  2013)   ü  Install  and  use  within  SharePoint.   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 18
  • Replicated SharePoint You  have  2  SharePoint  farms  that   have  been  synchronized.     Your  end  users  access   SharePoint  on  the  farms  closest   to  them  for  a  smoother   SharePoint  experience.       Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 19
  • Replicated SharePoint Nothing  is  constant  and  outages  do   occur,  whether  planned  or   unplanned.     Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 20
  • Replicated SharePoint In  order  to  ensure  the  conLnuity  of   operaLons,  you  can  simply  redirect   your  end  users  to  your  other  farm.     The  content  has  been   synchronized,  so  they  will  have   conLnuous  access  to  all  the   documents  they  need.     Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix 21

  • SeaBird Exploration “Our SharePoint has been very effective and Replicator is a large part of that,” said Stig Mathiassen VP of Information Services, SeaBird Exploration Norway OVERVIEW SeaBird Exploration is a global provider of marine 2D/3D/4D seismic data, and associated products and services to the oil and gas industry SeaBird specializes in high quality operations within the high end of the source vessel and 2D market, as well as in the shallow water 2D/3D/4D market Main success criteria for the company are an unrelenting focus on Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Quality (HSSEQ), combined with efficient collection of high quality seismic data Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix CHALLENGES RESULTS Seabird needed to develop a complete electronic reporting system for QHSE-MS compliance To date, the most measurable benefit has been a reduction in bandwidth for their seismic exploration ships using SharePoint Needed local InfoPath forms to be entered locally without a connection to headquarters Needed to store and manage local data without any ties to headquarters Out of date documentation onboard the ships cost Seabird $50,000/day as the ships would have to waste time in port while waiting for paper documents 30 Significant savings on satellite bandwidth costs, and servers are now up to date with the latest versions of documents, in minutes, not hours or days Replication continues even through weather related service outages
  • “The  ability  of  Replicator  to  allow  administrators  to  select  which  sites,  lists,  and  document  libraries  to   synchronize  or  replicate  was  a  primary  factor  in  our  decision.”     Greg  Jack,  Informa%on  Services  Team  Leader,  Antarc%ca  New  Zealand   OVERVIEW   CHALLENGES   RESULTS   AntarcLca  New  Zealand  is   responsible  for  developing,   managing  and  execuLng  New   Zealand  Government  acLviLes  in   AntarcLca  and  Southern  Ocean     ScienLfic  research,  conserving  the   area,  and  raising  public  awareness   of  the  conLnent   Ensure  con.nuity  of   communica.on  between  their   offices   100%  confidence  that  only   the  documents  they  want   shared  go  to  branch   offices   Confidential and Proprietary © Metalogix   Establish  reliable  secure  link  between   New  Zealand  and  AntarcLca     Develop  way  to  share   informa.on  through  firewalls   over  a  low  bandwidth,  high   latency  satellite  connec.on   31   OpLmized  flow  of  key   operaLons  using  workflows   and  data  compression     Key  informa.on  is   securely  distributed,  up  to   date  and  opera.ons  can   con.nue
