Session 2: Configuring “Rock Solid” SharePoint Farms

Presented by: Colin Spence

Running Time: 82 min

While the Configuration Wizard makes the SharePoint 2013 configuration process deceptively easy, there is much more to the configuration of a reliable and stable SharePoint environment. This session will cover critical areas that need to be addressed for enterprise deployments:

  • Most effective farm designs for medium and large companies
  • “Service Farms” in SharePoint 2013
  • App Store configuration essentials
  • Office Web Apps (OWA) 2013 configuration, and clustering
  • Best practices for service applications, site collection configuration, and security
  • Basics for hardening the SharePoint environment and restricting dangerous practices
  • Designing the core social components of SharePoint 2013, including My Sites and Sky Drive Pro
