Exchange team has written a blog about new Exchange Server deployment assistance as below:
We’ve listened to your feedback for improving the on-premises and hybrid Exchange Server deployment experience, and we’re happy to announce the release of the new, consolidated Deployment Assistant!
The Exchange Server Deployment Assistant now combines all the on-premises and hybrid deployment scenarios from both the Exchange 2013 Deployment Assistant and the Exchange 2010 Deployment Assistant into a single tool. We’ve eliminated the need for the installation of Silverlight and provide guidance for all Exchange Server deployments in a true one-stop shop experience. We’ve also kept the same, convenient question-and-answer format to create a customized, step-by-step checklist with instructions to deploy Exchange 2013 or Exchange 2010.
