TsooRad is a blog for John Weber. John is a Skype for Business MVP (2015-2018) - before that, a Lync Server MVP (2010-2014). My day job is titled "Technical Lead, MS UC" - I work with an awesome group of people at CDW, LLC. I’ve been at this gig in one fashion or another since 1988 - starting with desktops (remember Z-248’s?) and now I am in Portland, Oregon. I focus on collaboration and infrastructure. This means Exchange of all flavors, Skype, LCS/OCS/Lync, Windows, business process, and learning new stuff. I have a variety of interests - some of which may rear their ugly head in this forum. I have a variety of certifications dating back to Novell CNE and working up through the Microsoft MCP stack to MCITP multiple times. FWIW, I am on my third career - ex-USMC, retired US Army. I have a fancy MBA. One of these days, I intend to start teaching. The opinions expressed on this blog are mine and mine alone.

Lync File Share and Database size Estimator

My thanks to Pat Richard for helping with the math, the look/feel, and for everything else he does.  See Pat here

Have you ever wondered just how much space you need to plan for when deploying Lync?  The file share and the databases can consume some serious space if you set things wrong.  Would you like to input some numbers and see what you might be looking at down the road a piece?  Concerned with coming up a tad short? Want some ammo to convince the powers-that-be to allow you to twiddle the settings a bit and reduce the impact of having 730 days of Lync Monitoring and Archiving data on a drive somewhere?

Well, I have a (partial) answer.  The Lync 2013 File Share Space Estimator.  A quickie little tool to provide you some answers. 

YMMV

What Vacation Taught me

I took vacation this year; a formal thing with travel, schedule coordination, planned activities, and days full of interacting with others. ...
