Speaker(s): James Baldwin, Eyal Sharon (James & Eyal show)
Understand technical best practices to design and deploy a virtualized SharePoint that leverages FAST Search. Understand how design a flexible and robust architecture that supports your advanced collaboration requirements. Understand how to architect a solution that addresses IT challenges for data growth, application availability and simplified management that also enables your users to find and leverage the right business information to make better decisions.
Learn about the critical best practices and considerations for optimizing and growing SharePoint farms, storing user data efficiently and securely, while backing up TB’s a data in minutes. RBS (Remote Blob Store) and Virtualization, are just two of the many techniques discussed in this session. Realize the considerations for providing fast, automated disaster recovery for the entire SharePoint environment through SAN-based technology.
EMC @ SQL PASS Summit
We will have something kinda special at the SQL PASS Summit. Can’t say more.
But what I can say…
Large booth area in the Pavillion, with SQL Experts from EMC including two heros from our team, Tony Wu and Bruce Ye, travelling all the way from Shanghai.
Demos, booths, best practices and most importantly application-led conversations around;
SQL Server scalability – Infrastructure
Optimized Data Protection
High availability to where? Same SAN? Same site? next door? next state? next country? – All of the above <—
Proven Solutions around high-speed SQL deployments, one of which is in build right now with Michael and David in our Cork labs.
You want to create a new content Database …
It will be very large….you want it on seperate storage…
What do you need to do to achieve this?
Well, from Central Admin/Stsadm/PowerShell….
…you cannot specify which storage SQL will create the content database on (it will use the SQL instance defauts for Data and Log files)….
…you cannot specify the inital size of the content database…
…you need to find your SQL DBA….
…and your storage admin….who needs to arrange a time to create and unmask the storage….
…ever try building a house and installing a kitchen? You need the kitchen guy, the plumber and electrician….
Well, not any more. Our microsoft platform-focused development teams in EMC have listened and are working diligently on creating integrated, lightweight tools to help…
Announcing….. the EMC Storage Integrator Tool ….as part of a bigger Microsoft management release from EMC – life just got easier for us…
Just incase you find yourself at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2010 New Orleans next week….we’ll be there.
Eyal Sharon, Brian Henderson, and myself will be there amoungst other crack Microsoft folks, showcasing how EMC technology definately enhances the experience of a Microsoft solution.
* Hyper-V, small, medium, and seriously enterprise will be shown
* Automated Disaster recovery
* EMC integration and management
* Move your SQL database off 60 FC 15k Drives to just 5 EFD Flash drives and get better performance!….
Comes the big guns, SharePoint 2010 and Office 14, I mean the Office 2010 system.
Right, smack in the middle of EMC World 2010 in Boston, Mass.
We will be there with architectural guidance, performance and scalability and how the new built-in Search capability weights up against the old built-in search capability in SharePoint 2007. Come see us in the EMC Proven Solutions Pavillon.
Our next steps after that? Scale up and bring FAST search server for the Enterprise into play.
One of the bigger challenges for us in the lab is to devel into testing more functions and features available in the new SA model versus the old SSP, but we’ll get them. More to come on that as we progress.
