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.
See the new archiving features in Lync Server 2013 that allow for an improved deployment and operational efficiency in achieving compliance goals. We discuss step-by-step the integration options when using SQL for the data storage, as well as the new capabilities of using Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 for storage. We demonstrate the capabilities of federated Search when Exchange 2013 and Microsoft SharePoint 2013 are deployed together. We also discuss and demonstrate the archiving options when leveraging Lync Server 2013 Persistent Chat. This session includes notes from the field and tips & tricks on a successful deployment of the archiving feature._x000D_
When designing cloud applications, you should take into account the fact that a failure or malfunction of any component of the system is possible. This template is called Designing for Failure. This design approach helps minimize the negative consequences of failure of any component of the internal or external system. Sometimes, it is not so simple to use the Designing for Failure template, but the Azure platform greatly facilitates this task due to the fact that some of the functions are implemented by cloud services—Azure Web Sites, Traffic Manager, CDN, RA—Geo Redundant Storage. During this session, we shall talk about how to use the functionality provided by Azure to ensure the accessibility of a website, even in the event of failure of one of the regions of the platform.
