High availability for Exchange Server 2013 continues to be a topic that creates a lot of questions and problem scenarios for Exchange admins.
Recently I co-authored the ebook Deploying and Managing Exchange Server 2013 High Availability with my fellow Exchange MVPs Michael Van Horenbeeck and Steve Goodman. The ebook generated a strong response from readers, many of them asking for even more training on the topic.
So I’ve teamed up with the folks at Windows IT Pro to deliver a video training course on Exchange Server 2013 high availability.
This course is designed for both administrators who will be deploying their first Exchange Server 2013 HA solution and administrators who are responsible for managing an existing Exchange Server 2013 HA environment. You’ll learn important concepts, see demonstrations of how to configure and use Exchange Server 2013 HA features, and learn practical skills that you can use in your daily work.
By the end of this course, you will understand:
- Exchange Server 2013 server roles and architecture
- How to plan and configure namespaces and load balancing for Client Access servers
- How to deploy and manage a Database Availability Group
- How to manage multi-site HA environments
- Advanced HA features of Exchange Server 2013
The course runs over 6 weeks, with each week involving a 1 hour lesson followed by Q&A. The lessons are delivered entirely online so you can watch them live from anywhere in the world, or watch the replay at a time that suits you. Recordings are available for up to 90 days from the end of the course.
The first session was held last week, covering an introduction to Exchange Server 2013, high availability concepts, and an overview of the example scenario that is used through the rest of the course. If you sign up for the training course you’ll get access to the replay straight away.
The full list of sessions are:
- Session 1 – Exchange Server 2013 Introduction and Overview (recording available now)
- Session 2 – Client Access Server High Availability – March 3rd
- Session 3 – Mailbox Server High Availability – March 10th
- Session 4 – Transport High Availability – March 17th
- Session 5 – Site Resilience – March 24th
- Session 6 – Advanced High Availability – March 31st
I’ve also included a lab guide with session 1 so that you can build your own training lab environment and get hands on with the features that you learn about in the course.
