Lync deployment questions

We're in the process of designing a basic lync deployment with our current exchange 2010 platform.  I've been doing a lot of searches but its hard to tell what may be the best avenue.  I was hoping someone who has a similar setup or knows more then I do might have some ideas.  Things I'm looking for are:

1. I know I can run all of the lync roles on one server, however how about the Archive server, can it be ran on the same server as the lync software installation?

2. Can the SQL DB be run from the machine as well?

3. If I run Lync 2013 with Exchange 2010 can I still use the archiving capability?

4. I know it requires w2k8r2 but does it require Enterprise or Standard?

Thanks in advanced!

Hi,

1. On Lync 2010 archive server needs to be separate. On Lync 2013 is can be collocated on the front end.

Remember if you're planning on opening up your Lync box to the outside and to allow remote IM and federated access, you need a separate Edge server in the mix. Plus 3rd party SSL certificates, which can bump up your costs.

2. SQL DB can be collocated on the front end server on the Lync standard edition.

3. Yes. Archiving just takes care of your Lync communication. Users will still be able to see the Conversation History via Outlook.

4. Either one will work with your deployment.

Hope this helps, be sure to fire across any other questions you may have. I'd recommend doing plenty of research and understanding into Lync before deploying in your environment.
