SharePoint  2010 design and deploy SharePoint 2010 design and deploy Presentation Transcript

  • SharePoint 2010 Design & Deployment
    Best Practices
    Webinar Series By:
  • Speakers
    Gary Lapointe
    SharePoint MVP
    Sr. Architect & Lead Consultant
    Paul Papanek Stork
    SharePoint MVP & Author
    Sr. Architect & Lead Consultant
  • Agenda
    A sprinkling of demos throughout…
    Installation and Configuration Approaches
    New Services Architecture
    Information Architecture Considerations
    SharePoint Composer & SharePoint Maestro
    Best Practices/Avoiding Common Pitfalls
  • Installation and Configuration
    Point-and-Click Deployments
    SharePoint Configuration Wizard
    Farm Configuration Wizard
    LOTS of Central Admin Work
    Scripted Deployments
    Object Model
  • SharePoint Configuration Wizard (SCW)
    Automatically launched
    UI for PSConfig
    Makes some assumptions
    Central Admin DB Name
    Central Admin installed on first server
  • Farm Configuration Wizard (FCW)
    Default Installation Path
    Makes assumptions similar to SCW
    DB Names
    Managed Service Accounts
    Application Pools
    Great for quick install
    Not best for Production
    Too many services
    Too many assumptions
  • Central Admin Configurations
    Provides complete control
    Very time consuming
    Can’t be replicated
  • Using Wizards and the Ribbon
  • Audience Survey
    What is your primary role in Design and Deployment of SharePoint 2010 at your organization?
    Decision Maker, Influencer or Sponsor
    Admin or Architect
    Analyst or End User
  • PowerShell
    Fine grained control ofall settings
    High level of complexity
    Lots of Community Support
    Script Repository: http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/ScriptCenter
  • STSADM/PSConfig
    Deprecated but still occasionally required
    Compared to PowerShell
    Less complex
    Less granular
    May be used inside PowerShell scripts
    Lots of Community Support
  • Object Model (OM)
    Some settings only available in the OM
    Two ways to use the OM
    PowerShell scripts
    Custom Applications
    Examples in the SharePoint Developer Center: http://msdn.microsoft.com/sharepoint
  • Using Scripts and the Object Model
  • Service Applications Architecture
    Replaces Shared Service Providers (SSP’s)
    New deployment considerations
    What are the advantages over SSP’s?
    What does each Service App do?
    Which SharePoint edition do I need?
    Which Service Apps depend on others?
    How big do the databases normally get?
    Charts available after Webinar
    Service Apps per SharePoint Edition
    Service App Dependencies
    Service App Database planning considerations
  • Service Application Components
    Service Applications components
    Service Instance
    Service Machine Instance
    Service Application Endpoint
    Service Application
    Service Connection (aka Service App Proxy)
  • Information Architecture
    New Information Architecture Considerations
    Considerations Include (but not limited to):
    Sizing (Large List Support)
    Multilingual Sites and Variations
  • Sizing Considerations
    Determine which Service Apps you need
    Evaluate using Remote Blob Storage in heavy ECM environments
    Avoid Content Databases over 200GB for Collaborative sites
    Review Case Studies similar to your environment
    Know your service level requirements
    Model your environment during planning
  • Multilingual UI Considerations
    MUI Provides a Simple Alternative to Variations (chrome only)
    Can easily bolt on afterwards with minimal to no impact, unlike Variations
    Central Admin is fully MUI aware!
    Content that is not resource file driven will still be in the source language
    Use Variations to support translations of non-resourced content
    Managed Metadata Terms can have Alternate Languages
  • Multi-Tenancy Considerations
    Multi-Tenancy Supports Hosted Scenarios
    Traditional Hosting and Charge-back Scenarios
    Multi-Tenancy Provides Isolation
    Data (including reporting and auditing)
    Usage (including features and charge-backs)
    Site Subscriptions Associate Site Collections with Tenants
    Share Settings, Features, and Service Data
    Feature Packs Group Features for Tenants
  • Audience Survey
    Where is your organization on the SharePoint 2010 Design & Deployment curve?
    Already deploying SharePoint 2010
    In the planning and design phase
    Will install/upgrade once SP2010 has been out awhile (e.g. after the first service pack)
    Unsure – need more information
    No plans to move to 2010 at this time
  • SharePoint Composer
    Visually Design 2007 & 2010 Farms
    Import & Document existing installations
    Validate Designs Prior to deployment
    Great Planning Tool
    Holistic view of SharePoint
    Enhances collaboration
    GreatAudit Tool
    Auditors, consultants, etc., can audit a farm config
    Best Practices Advice
  • Using SharePoint Composer
  • SharePoint Maestro
    Build a farm using the XML created by Composer
    Leverage the power of PowerShell without knowing PowerShell
    Repeatable build process
    (Dev, QA, Staging, Prod)
    Replaces SCW, FCW, and Point-and-Click configs
    Crawl existing 2007 farms
  • Using SharePoint Maestro
  • Common Pitfalls
    Underestimating the complexity of PowerShell
    Problems configuring some Service Apps with PowerShell
    User Profile Service Application
    Managed Metadata Service Application
    Order of execution & dependencies
    Using the Farm Configuration Wizard for Production
    Not all Site Templates support MUI
    Multi-Tenancy as an afterthought will result in migration issues & data loss
  • Best Practices
    Carefully design and document your SharePoint implementation
    Validate your design for adherence to best practices
    Start only the Service Applications you need
    Understand SharePoint’s boundaries and limits
    Boundaries – Absolute values not to exceed
    Thresholds/Limits – Configurable values
    Use PowerShell or SharePoint Composer and Maestro for large deployments
    Establish a performance baseline and maintain periodic performance measurements
  • Audience Survey
    What do you see as next steps?
