Every new version of Exchange brings changes, and Exchange 2013 is no exception. This event will help equip you to upgrade to Exchange 2013 by examining the most critical changes Microsoft has made in the new version, including the new division of labor between the mailbox and CAS roles, the introduction of PowerShell 3.0, and a rethinking of how Microsoft believes customers should provide perimeter security and message hygiene for Exchange.
Session 1: What’s New in Client Access in Exchange 2013
The client access server (CAS) role was arguably the most complicated piece of Exchange 2010. In Exchange 2013, Microsoft has dramatically streamlined the CAS role—but that doesn’t mean you can forget everything you know about certificates, namespaces, and load balancing! In this session we’ll see what’s changed about the CAS 2013 role and learn how to apply what you know about designing and operating Exchange 2010 CAS services to the new version.
Session 2: What’s New In the Exchange 2013 Mailbox Role
The mailbox role remains at the core of the Exchange 2013 infrastructure, but the mailbox server now does things it’s never had to do before, like answer the phone! In this session we’ll tour the changes that Microsoft’s made to the mailbox role and explore how they enable larger mailboxes, better availability and resilience, and improved performance.
Session 3: A Guided Tour of Outlook Web App 2013
OWA 2013 has been completely rebuilt with new features such as offline access, an app store, better support for tablets and smartphones, and a complete cosmetic overhaul. In this session we’ll examine the improvements and changes in OWA 2013, talk about how Microsoft is positioning OWA 2013 as an alternative to the full Outlook client, and discuss the architectural and administrative changes that come with the new version.
