Exchange 2013 HA and Site Resiliency

I would say Exchange 2013 HA and site resiliency got into a matured state from the previous version of Exchange. Exchange 2013 provides multiple options for HA and site resilience. Microsoft has tried to keep human intervention to a minimum and allow Exchange to recover itself from any kind of failures so that the administrator can focus on recovering the failed hardware or server rather than recovering the service.

Below are the two articles by me on Exchange 2013 HA and Site resiliency

Corona, CA- August 13, 2013 – ENow, a Silver Microsoft Independent Software Vendor, specializing in the development of applications to simplify Microsoft system management, announced the release of EMS 6.0.

The EMS 6.0 release includes many benefits that will make the jobs of Microsoft Exchange and Lync administrators easier while at the same time increasing service availability. Microsoft Exchange 2013 has many improvements and is now being deployed. The EMS 6.0 release now enables Exchange 2013 administrators to proactively monitor and have visibility into their messaging infrastructure. EMS 6.0’s Mailscape module has received over 12 awards in the last 3 years including recently being named best Exchange Administration Tool by MSExchange.org. Mailscape proactively tests all the core messaging components including DAG configuration, external and internal mail flow, OWA, and ActiveSync. The reporting module has over 210 reports including detailed insight on mobile device usage.

Also included in this release is a new module, named UniScope, which provides visibility into Microsoft Lync deployments. Microsoft Lync is an outstanding Unified Communications platform that seamlessly integrates instant messaging, video conferencing, telecommunications and presence information. It enables consumers and company employees to communicate more efficiently and also increase productivity. Lync is being widely adopted and the need to proactively monitor this technology is critical as outages can cost a company thousands of dollars. UniScope proactively tests the core components of a Lync deployment including Front End, Web Conferencing, Mediation servers, end user connectivity, PSTN access and address book downloads.

“Due to our global customer base, we have a broad perspective on what technologies are being adopted.” states Jay Gundotra, CEO of ENow. “Microsoft has done a great job of continually adding useful features to both the Exchange and Lync platforms. As companies roll these technologies out, the dependency upon them grows and so does the need to ensure service availability. Our new additions to the EMS platform enable administrators to proactively manage both Exchange and Lync from a single dashboard.”

The ENow Management System is a monitoring and reporting platform which is currently used in over 50 countries by enterprise companies, including Facebook, NYSE, DirecTV, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Wendy’s and Advanced Auto Parts. The EMS platform features a dashboard with red, yellow, and green lights indicating the health of each monitored server. The solution enables IT support staff to proactively monitor servers in real time and avoid costly outages. It also provides administrators with deep reporting capabilities for Exchange, Office 365, BlackBerry, Active Directory, Lync and SharePoint servers.
