Deployment, Upgrade and Co-Existence Scenarios with Microsoft Lync Server 2010
A new version of an existing product always provides a variety of new features and functions. Upgrading is the process of moving to the latest version, with the goal of a smooth transition; the current production environment must run as interruption-free as possible while the new servers, functionalities and features are introduced. Often an upgrade is a long-term process that requires a coexistence phase, resulting in users running different versions of the software. This session explains how to plan and move from Office Communications Server 2007/Office Communications Server 2007 R2, to Microsoft Lync Server 2010 for servers and clients. It addresses the implications of various migration and coexistence approaches, as well as covering Microsoft’s investments to support migration from prior versions of Microsoft Lync Server 2010.
