LYNC 2010 Design Draft

In an effort to upgrade our existing OCS 2007 R2 environment, I wanted to come up with a new design I could build up in parallel.  This draft design includes:

  • 4 Front-End Pool Lync 2010 Servers, collocating the A\V Lync Role.
  • 2 Node – Active\Passive SQL 2008 Cluster (Note: the Passive node with server as the archive and monitoring server)
  • 2 Edge Lync 2010 Servers
  • 2 Lync 2010 Mediation Servers
  • 2 ISA\TMG Servers for Address Book Reverse Proxy
  • Pair of Hardware Load Balancers and use of a DNS round robin.

The impetus for this design was High Availability and Redundancy at every layer. We anticipate 50,000 users enabled, with a 30% utilization or concurrent connection rate. Depending on load, we can add additional front-end and edge servers to scale.

Once I get a proof of concept deployed in the lab, I will share my experiences with the build and deployment.

    Hi Ed,

    Can this be used as a reference architecture for Lync 2010 deployments? If yes, would it be possible for you to send me the visio file for the architecture above?

    Yes. I have had discussions with the MS TSP architects and they have blessed this design. You should be able to use this as a template for your implementation.

    Best of Luck.
