The first major decision when planning for a Lync deployment is how to deploy Microsoft Lync: as Lync Server 2013 on premises, or Lync Online with Microsoft Office 365 in the cloud. This first decision will shape service quality, resiliency, and resource optimization in your deployment. This session goes over the differences between "on-premise," hybrid, and "on-line" solutions and details situations where each would be optimal for your deployment. Finally, this session covers hosted solutions, the interoperability between Lync and Office 365, and offers guidance in preparing for a potential migration to the cloud.
Web developers are seeing huge boosts in their productivity building Web Applications with ASP.NET, with so many huge improvements to Visual Studio focused on the problems web developers solve each day. We've also made some significant improvements in Microsoft Azure for web developers by concentrating on providing the community the best cloud in which to host ASP.NET web apps. Features like Auto-scaling and Traffic Management provide high-performance, internationally-distributed web hosting scenarios. We've made it easier than ever to add background processing by adding Azure WebJobs as an option for web developers who need to add a middle tier. Along with staging and production deployment slots, and a rich SDK to enable service automation - a feature many software-as-a-service apps can use to automate their provisioning and deployment experiences - there's no better place than Microsoft Azure Web Sites to host your ASP.NET apps. Kudu offers Web Sites customers a set of extensions that offer an extensible addition to the Azure Management Portal that has extensions in it from external contributors and Microsoft engineers who contribute to a growing list of functionality each site can exploit. This session will introduce these and other features with Web Sites, and demonstrate how it is the best choice in the cloud for ASP.NET.
