SP2013 Deployment on Windows Azure

  1. 1. Cloudy with a chance of Azure Setting up SP2013 Demo/Test Environment on Windows Azure By Avinash Kondagunta - SharePoint Addict - MCTS SharePoint 2010, MCPD SharePoint 2010 - Azure Newbie
  2. 2. Windows Azure Azure overview(demo) What is an Azure Subscription? What PaaS & IaaS services are available on Azure? What is a Windows Azure Virtual Network? What is a cloud service and why is it useful? Platform as a service vs Infrastructure as a service What is the difference? What is relevant for setting up a SP2013 farm?
  3. 3. IaaS vs. PaaS
  4. 4. Virtual Networks: Site-toSite On-premises <subnet 1> <subnet 2> <subnet 3> DNS Server Hardware VPN or Windows RRAS Your datacenter WA Gateway Virtual Network
  5. 5. Virtual Networks – Pointto-Site <subnet 1> <subnet 2> <subnet 3> DNS Server On-premises WA Gateway Hardware VPN or Windows RRAS Your datacenter Individual computers behind corporate firewall Virtual Network
  6. 6. Infrastructure Services on Windows Azure IT Pro experience IaaS and PaaS together Support for key server apps Pay by the minute Storage Manageability and Mobility High availability features Advanced Hybrid Networking VMs Stops/Payment Stops MSDN agility FedRAMP certified
  7. 7. MSDN Subscription - MSDN Subscription levels + Azure credits
  8. 8. Azure IaaS Services for SP2013 The picture to the right shows the various services available on Windows Azure categorized by the layer on which they operate. Windows Azure IaaS Services utilized in this demo are highlighted in red.
  9. 9. Deploy SP2013 on Azure using Powershell Premise for today’s show (Thanks Microsoft!): https://github.com/WindowsAzure/azure-sdk-tools-samples/wiki/Automated-Deployment-of-SharePoint-2013-with-WindowsAzure-PowerShell Why do this? - Automate SharePoint farm deployment - Reduce costs by leveraging IaaS - Explore Azure scale-out and scale-up options
  10. 10. Traditional Deployment w/o Automation LB WEB APP SQL 80 Networking Infrastructure
  11. 11. Cloud Deployment w/o Automation LB WEB APP SQL 80 Virtual Network
  12. 12. Cloud Deployment with Automation LB WEB APP SQL 80 Virtual Network
  13. 13. SharePoint 2013 Automation Scripts PowerShell Scripts that use Remote PowerShell for automated deployment of Active Directory, SQL Server and SharePoint 2013. Two Sample Configurations Available HighlyAvailable and SingleVMs Download from GitHub https://github.com/windowsazure/azure-sdk-tools-samples
  14. 14. Single Virtual Machines Template LB WEB/APP SQL AD/DC/DNS 1 x Large (4 Cores & 7 GB) Data Tier 80 1 x A6 (4 Cores & 28 GB) Cloud Service 20000 Virtual Network Windows Azure
  15. 15. Highly Available Template LB WEB APP SQL AD/DC/DNS 2 x Large (4 Cores & 7 GB) AVSET SPWEB AVSET SPAPP AVSET SQLHA App Tier 2 x Large (4 Cores & 7 GB) Data Tier 2 x A6 80 (4 Cores & 28 GB) Cloud Service 20000 Virtual Network Windows Azure AVSET DCSET
  16. 16. Lets get started! Prerequisites: 1) Connect to your Azure subscription 2) Enable PowerShell "Second-Hop" Functionality with CredSSP Network Infrastructure + Storage Accounts + VMs for Active Directory + VMs for SharePoint + VMs for SQL = SP 2013 farm Single VM Template vs Highly Available Template Single VM Template - Create a 3 VM farm for demo/test purposes with a pre-built configuration Highly Available Template - Utilize dependency injection to build customized highly-available farms automatically
  17. 17. Configuration guidelines - Update the Virtual network config - Choose appropriate VMs based on criteria(cost/performance/scalability) - Create custom images and upload for usage on Azure - Update the config files based on appropriate scale-out & scale-up strategies
  18. 18. Lets Deploy the SP2013 farm! - Review the config files - Overview of the farm deployment output using the master deployment script - Access the SP2013 publishing site created by the deployment - Post deployment features Autoscale, Manage farm/site availability based on rules, etc
  19. 19. Thank you for coming! Hope this was useful to everyone. Note: This demo did not include the configuration of apps for SP2013 or workflows(which can be configured after the initial farm setup).
