SharePoint Admin in a hybrid world

Published on

Microsoft's massive investment into Cloud technologies are enough to make anyone stop and wonder if the Cloud is something they should be focusing on for SharePoint. During this class we will examine Microsoft's Cloud Strategy from an ITPro's perspective and understand how a hybrid scenario can be structured to maximize the On Premises, Infrastructure as a Service, & Cloud capabilities.

Join Rackspace’s Microsoft MVP, Jason Himmelstein, as he explains the new landscape and how companies both large and small can take advantage of all the features that Office 365, Azure, and most specifically SharePoint 2016 bring to the table. We will deep dive into deployment planning and implementation across the hybrid stack. We will also discuss the management of the SharePoint platform across all tiers. We will walk through the concepts behind the new world of Identity Management, take you through implementing Azure Active Directory Connect and explain the benefits & differences between it and ADFS. We will even discuss how the hybrid space changes management of Exchange in your organization & what topology implications this has. At the end of this session you will have a better understanding of how to manage your Hybrid SharePoint estate, using your onPrem Identities synced to Azure, be confidently enjoying all of the benefits of the Hybrid Microsoft World.

  35. 35. www.rackspace.com SharePoint Hybrid Sites and search at a glance Feature Non-hybrid Hybrid OneDrive for Business OneDrive for Business is available in Office 365 but there is no link to it from SharePoint Server. If you've deployed MySites, users may have a second OneDrive for Business in SharePoint Server. OneDrive links are provided in SharePoint Server which direct users to OneDrive for Business in Office 365. Site following The followed sites list in Office 365 tracks followed SharePoint Online sites. If you've deployed MySites, a second followed sites list in SharePoint Server tracks followed SharePoint Server sites. Followed sites from both locations are consolidated in the SharePoint Online followed sites list. SharePoint Server links to the followed sites list redirect users to the SharePoint Online followed sites list. Document following If you've deployed MySites, the followed documents list in SharePoint Server tracks followed SharePoint Server documents. Hybrid document following is not available. If you use hybrid OneDrive for Business, the SharePoint Server followed documents list will be hidden from users. (Note that if you configure hybrid search and you have Delve, you can favorite SharePoint Server documents.) Profiles Users have separate profiles in SharePoint Server and in Office 365. Profiles exist in both locations, but SharePoint Server links to users' profiles redirect profiles in Office 365. Extensible app launcher (SharePoint Server 2016 only) Users see a different app launcher in Office 365 and in SharePoint Server. There are still separate app launchers, but the SharePoint Server app launcher includes several tiles from Office 365. Search Separate search indexes and search centers for SharePoint Server and Office 365. Users must search from SharePoint Server to find items stored there and they must search form Office 365 to find items stored there. Search results between the two locations are combined in one of two ways. Cloud hybrid search crawls on-premises content and indexes it in the search index in Office 365. Users can search the Office 365 index from either location. Hybrid federated search combines search results from each search index in a single search center.
