SharePoint Hybrid Scenarios


Published on

Examine Microsoft's cloud strategy from a SharePoint administration perspective and understand how a hybrid scenario can be structured to maximize the on-premises, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and cloud capabilities. We will discuss planning and implementation across the hybrid stack.

  • A History LessonWhat is hybridWhy should you consider hybridPlanning for hybrid scenarios
  • What is Hybrid?Any of the following workloads - Exchange, SharePoint or Lync is deployed in the cloud (Office 365) in coexistence with the same or any other workloads On-PremisesFor Example: Exchange Online with Exchange On-Premises and Lync On-PremisesTwo types of hybrid deployments:Hybrid within a workloadExchange Online and Exchange Server by usersSharePoint Online and SharePoint Server by sitesLync Online and Lync Server hybrid is NOT availableHybrid between workloadsExchange Online working with Lync Server enabling voicemail SharePoint Online working with Lync Server enabling presenceEtc.
  • Cloud first strategy: 90 day release cycle (good thing or bad?) new features & functionality is coming to the cloud firstPowerBIFlexibility: Enterprises have the flexibility move to the cloud at their own pace and on their own terms.They can even stay in hybrid modeOn-Premises customization:Customers may have significant customization on-premises and have the need to continue to have controlSignificant footprint in Remote locations:Customers may have significant footprint in remote locations where they may not have good connectivity to the Internet.
  • Agility: The first factor driving adoption of cloud computing is agility. Cloud computing speeds up an organization’s ability to capitalize on new opportunities and to respond to changes in business demand. Applications can be deployed much faster and more efficiently, and solutions can be delivered to end users nearly anywhere, at any time, across devices, and in ways that are both secure and manageable. Also, with cloud computing, all of the IT infrastructure that an organization needs to operate quickly and efficiently is available at the “flip of a switch.” So, the next time the marketing department launches a campaign without first telling anybody, the organization’s website is much less likely to go down. The public or private cloud environment can quickly scale up or down to meet spikes in demand.Focus: The second factor driving adoption of cloud computing is focus—the ability to focus on improving the success of a business through better IT. Put another way, a business can focus more on innovation and less on infrastructure. Today, the typical IT department spends most of its time and money on maintenance and operations. Cloud computing enables IT departments to cut those costs down dramatically. Infrastructure is abstracted and resources are pooled, so IT runs more like a utility than a collection of complicated (and often fragile) software and hardware systems. When you can pay more attention to ideas than IT complexity, you add a new kind of value to the business. IT staff that were dedicated to maintenance tasks such as operating system and application updates, or hardware management, can now be transitioned to more innovative and strategic roles within your the IT organization.Economics: The third factor driving adoption of cloud computing is economics. Economically, cloud computing lowers the cost of delivering IT and increasing the utilization and efficiency of your data center. Delivery costs go down, because with cloud computing applications and resources become self-service , and usage of those resources becomes measurable in new and very precise ways. Hardware utilization also increases because infrastructure resources (storage, computer, and network) are now pooled and abstracted. So, for example, when a self-service application is finished, the server and storage resources it used will go back into the pool. The environment is highly automated, so systems are always at work.
  • Speaking Points:Organizations can reduce IT costs with Office 365, a cloud productivity solution that simplifies IT management and provides virtually anywhere access to familiar Office tools, email, file sharing, conferencing, and many more services. With deploying SharePoint 2013 on Office 365, customers can create sites to share documents and information, making it easy to work together with colleagues and customers. By moving to Microsoft Office 365, the IT team does not have to worry about hardware management, SharePoint management, upgrading, patching, high availability, Disaster Recovery and Health Monitoring. This is done for them on Microsoft Office 365. With Windows Azure Virtual Machines, the customer’s IT team is in charge of keeping the Virtual Machines updated and they are also in charge of upgrading the applications running on Virtual Machines and setting up high availability and disaster recovery for them. With Microsoft Office 365, these areas are automatically taken care for customers where all the infrastructure and SharePoint roles are deployed on Microsoft office 365.  Microsoft Office 365 is continuously being updated. This means that Office 365 gets continuously updated and upgraded with newest patches, features and capabilities for underlying technologies such as SQL Servers but also for the SharePoint roles and servers. Microsoft office 365 offers SharePoint 2013 customers reliability, supportability, availability and improved manageability and reduction in time to go to Production. Windows Azure offers additional flexibility and control over deploying Microsoft SharePoint 2013 on customer’s own hardware and on their premise. If an organization wants to manage and control its own SharePoint 2013 implementation while capitalizing on options for virtualization in the cloud, Windows Azure Virtual Machines are ideal for this deployment. As SharePoint workloads grow, an organization can rapidly expand infrastructure or as utilization decreases, customers can reduce the scope of their deployment..
  • The SharePointDefinitionA hybrid SharePoint environment is composed of SharePoint Server, typically deployed on-premises, and Microsoft Office 365 – SharePoint Online.Yeah, but what does this really mean?Single sign-on (SSO)/domain federationOn-prem-to-cloud workload integration (for SharePoint 2013: Search, BCS, and Duet)What is Azure IaaS & why is it valuable? SharePoint for Internet Sites (FIS) Public facing, anonymous access sitesDeveloper, Test and Staging Environments Quickly provision and un-provision entire environmentsHybrid Applications Applications that span your data center and the cloudDisaster Recovery Quickly recover from a disaster, only pay for use
  • Distribute workloads: put the right workloads in their best locationScaling: using Azure you can scale rapidly without having to buy additional hardwareSecurity: using o365 for Extranets you don’t have to open your firewall to outsidersIT spend: trade infrastructure costs for monthly subscription costsTCO: lower power costs if you own less infrastructure, you pay for less upfront and only pay what you use
  • ADFS topologiesADFS proxies (no license costs) or UAG (license costs) – in the DMZ ADFS servers DirSyncAvoid putting the same workload in more than one place
  • Existing customizations stay on-premises, if they leverage full trust solutions. Start to move new development toward CSOMNew development determine the right development model and then place the workloadExtranet placement Office 365 is a great target for this, moves the authentication responsibilities to the cloudEmerging technology that is cloud-firstSocial capabilities Yammer is cloud onlyService Level Agreements (SLAs)Disaster Recovery RTO\RPOBackupsUser localeIntegration with other systems
