This book is a resource kit -a very technical reference book on the planning, architecture, deployment, monitoring, managing and trouble-shooting your OCS R2 environment. OCS R2 architecture is similar to Exchange Server 2007/2010 architecture -each server role is a component that fits with other server roles to deliver a complete UC solution. But the great part about this architecture is that you don't have to deploy every server role -for example -archiving server or monitoring server role only needs to be deployed if you need that functionality. This book goes very deep -I would say 300-400 technical level in explaining the function of each server role and how it fits into the architecture and what phase you should deploy it in and how. Very thourough in each aspect and then once deployed, how to manage and monitor its performance and trouble-shoot etc.
Any architect/designers/implementers of UC platform -including those that want to integrate with various PBXs and non-microsoft technologies- would find this an extremely valuable resource.
I would highly recommend this book for those types of people mentioned above -technical people to use as a reference -once you get the gist of the architecture that you should build, it will help you plan for it and then phase by phase build it. To actually configure each server role and its specific features/functions that you want to deploy, then refer to MS OCS R2 deployment guides -there is one for each role, like Edge Server deployment guide -very specific step by step guide.
This reference is well worth the purchase price. This, along with the Microsoft-provided technical references will steer you in the right direction for OCS R2.
In this book you are going to find deep,under-the hood technical information written by subject matter experts who develop, support, deploy, and troubleshoot Communications Server. No one is closer to the product than these authors. They literally wrote this book as the product was being developed.
The ResKit team is now hard at work on version 3 of Communications Server Resource Kit, this time with 35 cross-team authors, and hope you will check out our progress on our new blog, DrRez, at [...]. You can also follow us on Twitter (@DrRez) at [...].
