SharePoint Redesign Question
Posted on 2014-01-27
My team manage the server / os infrastructure while our Web Team handles the content on web pages etc...
Our current SharePoint 2010 environment was setup before I got here and have never workly well and was setup and planned out at the same time. Regardless it we had a Microsoft RASP assessment done and it came back with pages of problems with not surprise. My manager has asked me how I would redesign the SharePoint 2010 environment so it works better.
Here is our current layout.
All traffic is load balanced from our Netscaler and is set to not offload SSL traffic. The SSL cert is applied at the Netscaler and web servers for security.
2x Web Front End Servers - Windows 2008 R2
1x Application Server - Windows 2008 R2
1x - Cluster SQL 2012 database server
The current environment is setup to use claims but I believe it is using Claims NTLM since there our no SPN records for our SharePoint servers.
-Our site is accessible on the internet
-New environment needs to be saleable
-redundancy both at the server, app levels
-Efficient use of documents - Right now document access is very slow
Here are my initial thought
2x - Windows 2012 Front End Servers running SharePoint 2010 (Or should I go to 2013)
2x - Windows 2012 Apps Server. How would I load balance the apps server or do I need to cluster them
1x - Windows 2012 SQL 2012 cluster
1x - Some include AD RMS since use want to control how, who and what users can do with documents in sharepoint..
I am not a sharepoint admin and look forward to everyone feedback
