This Track includes video recordings of nine of our most popular Exchange sessions taught by industry recognized, hands-on specialists. Topics range from Server Sizing to Lync to ActiveSync to Unified Messaging ... and a whole lot in between. See Exchange Track session abstracts below.
The Tao Of Exchange Server 2013 Sizing
Exchange 2013 introduced some significant architectural changes from prior releases; as a result, the process for sizing an on-premises deployment has also changed. In this session, we will discuss both the art and the science behind properly sizing an Exchange 2013 deployment. The methods used to generate the official sizing guidelines will be explained, because the speaker was directly involved in this process. We will discuss what is included in the guidelines, and more importantly what is not included—because this is where the art comes into play. The latest official sizing calculator will be demonstrated, including an overview of changes since the 2010 version.

CAS 2013 – Why It Is 3 Better Than CAS 2010 and 6 Better Than 2007
Client Access Server (CAS) 2013 – it’s new and shiny, so it must be better at everything than every previous iteration of CAS, right? Well, it is. It simplifies proxy and redirection, it simplifies namespaces, it simplifies load balancing, it makes you coffee when you get to work and will never leave your high five hanging. Come to this session and learn more about why it is the best CAS so far and why you need to deploy it (not that you have a choice if you want Exchange 2013, but at least this session will make you feel excited about doing it).
Better Together: Integrating Exchange Server 2013 and Lync Server 2013
Microsoft timed the release of Exchange 2013, Lync 2013, and SharePoint 2013 for the same time window, in large part because these products are more integrated with each other than previous versions have been. Lync and Exchange together offer a wealth of functionality, including instant messaging and presence integration inside Outlook Web App, high-resolution contact photos, and the new Unified Contact Store for consolidating Lync and Exchange contacts. In this session, we will explore the new features in Exchange 2013 and Lync 2013, see how they work separately, and dive into how they work better together.

The architectural and feature changes in Exchange 2013 extend across all of the server roles from previous versions. The Unified Messaging (UM) role is gone, but its features live on. In this session, UM expert Paul Robichaux will guide you through the architectural changes that split UM functionality between the Mailbox and Client Access server roles, discuss feature improvements and changes in the 2013 version of UM, and highlight how to design a cost-effective and efficient UM system to get Exchange voicemail and telephone answering deployed for your users.
