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.
The new Microsoft Rights Management services (RMS) enables customers to protect their most sensitive information. Some customers want to put this data in the cloud while retaining control over it, while some may want to keep their data on-premises due to concerns about control over their data. Microsoft RMS can work with both these scenarios, enabling them to deploy Azure RMS to work with online and on-premises servers, and allowing them to retain control over their keys and access to documents. In this session we describe how these scenarios are deployed and demonstrate how to quickly set up Azure RMS, how to enable on-premises and cloud-based SharePoint and Exchange to use the service via the connector, and how to deploy Bring your Own Key solutions to protect your root keys.
