Everything you ever wanted to know about Lync

Since we’re giving the usual TechNet newsletter a little rest over Easter, I’m telling you about this fortnight’s great TechNet On feature here on the blog instead. This time we’re talking all things Lync, and there’s a heap of technical info covering what you should know and why, and deployment. Find out why Lync is great and get started with planning and deployment below.

    Great post…

    But how about Disaster Recovery ? Do you have any info on that or any whitepaper may be?


  2. Hi – I've done some digging – hope these resources help:



    The TechNet forums are a great place to ask questions, too.

    I've already asked this a few times in various forums including technet and everything points back to the same backup procedure but not a full disaster recovery documentation. A while back I heard from MSFT that they are in the process of creating one – but haven't heard anything yet.

    Many thanks for your response anyways. but it certainly looks like I still have to wait for an official documenation.
