SharePoint is now a company standard, but what is supported, sensible, or even practicable? How do we go about monitoring and managing SharePoint? In this session, we discuss the virtualization path and best practices using Hyper-V for high availability and why virtualization makes sense. With the foundations in place we take a deep dive on how we can monitor SharePoint Farms, the availability of each role and how we can profit from a combination of the Health Service within SharePoint and the wealth of what System Center Operations Manager can offer to make the management experience an easier one. We also look at want advancements we can make outside of the box by directly integrating the Hive for exceptions. What will we learn? How to effectively manage and monitor our SharePoint farms of any size. Why not make a complex task fun with measurable results.
