Building the Perfect SharePoint Farm: A Walkthrough of Best Practices from the Field

SharePoint 2007 has proven to be a technology that is remarkably easy to get running out of the box. On the flipside, however, some of the advanced configuration options with SharePoint are notoriously difficult to setup and configure, and a great deal of confusion exists regarding SharePoint best practice design, deployment, disaster recovery, and maintenance. This session covers best practices encompassing the most commonly asked questions regarding SharePoint infrastructure and design, and includes a broad range of critical but often overlooked items to consider when architecting a SharePoint environment. In short, all of the specifics required to build the ‘perfect’ SharePoint farm are presented through discussion of real-world SharePoint designs of all sizes.

Learn from previous real world deployments and avoid common mistakes.
Plan a checklist for architecture of SharePoint environments of any size.
Incorporate High Availability, Disaster Recovery, and Virtualization into an existing SharePoint environment.
