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.
Imagine needing only one C# statement to authenticate. One statement to create a virtual machine. One statement to modify an existing virtual network. With Azure Management Libraries for .NET, there's no more guessing about what's required, what's optional, and what's non-modifiable. The goal of these libraries is to improve the developer experience by providing a higher-level, object-oriented API, optimized for readability and writability. These libraries are built on the lower-level, request-response style of auto-generated clients, and they can run side by side with auto-generated clients.
