New Technet Planning and Architecture webcasts

Send to Kindle

Back when I was a lad (okay, back on mid 06) I had to plan, design and implement a fully redundant MOSS farm for a largish company that was an early MOSS adopter. I previously blogged some notes about how I went about doing Disk I/O planning, and one of these days I will get around to detailing my use of SQLIOSIM as well.

Back then there was absolutely no useful information to help me with this whole process apart from some stuff that Joel had written.

That has now changed. Microsoft have released a series of whitepaper/webcasts covering a variety of critically important infrastructure oriented topics. I’ve just watched the capacity planning one and it really is excellent (although my experience suggests their document storage ratio in SQL vs FileSystem is closer to 2x than 1.2 – 1.5x. )

CISSP readers, some of these would certainly qualify for type A CPE’s as well

So do yourself a favour and watch the webcasts. Well paced, good depth and a really great way to get up to speed quickly.

The links are below.
