  1. 1. 2013 IBM Corporation IBM Sametime Deployment Planning Open Mic Webcast May 8, 2013
  2. 2. 2 | 2013 IBM Corporation Agenda Sametime Components Common Deployments Virtualization Q&A
  3. 3. 3 | 2013 IBM Corporation What does Sametime offer? System Console Sametime Community Sametime Proxy Meeting Server Sametime Media Server
  4. 4. 4 | 2013 IBM Corporation Sametime System Console Server The System Console is the core planning server and allows you to setup all of your deployment plans for the various servers that you will install. It organizes server settings, policies, and other Sametime specific configurations for the various servers in a given deployment.
  5. 5. 5 | 2013 IBM Corporation Sametime Community Server The backbone of the Sametime environment Provides chat features between clients Prerequisite for many of the other Sametime products
  6. 6. 6 | 2013 IBM Corporation Sametime Proxy Server Offers communication for the browser-based chat client, Android client, and iOS client Provides awareness for users in browser-based meetings Delivers the web audio/video plugin to the meeting Can be integrated with products such as iNotes to offer Sametime within that client
  7. 7. 7 | 2013 IBM Corporation Sametime Meeting Server Provides a place that users can join to share content with each other through slides, screen shares, and application control. When a Media Manager is installed it can offer audio and video within a meeting room. The Meeting Server replaces the Classic Meeting Server that runs on the Community Server. The Meeting Server is now available directly from within the rich client so there is no longer a requirement to use a web browser to attend a meeting.
  8. 8. 8 | 2013 IBM Corporation Sametime Media Server A Sametime Media environment includes the following components (Note: not all are required to be installed) Sametime Media Server, Turn Server, and Bandwidth Manager. The media server includes three components SIP Proxy Registrar, Conference Manager, Packet Switcher All of these components are needed and can be installed onto separate machines or the same machine Note: If you ever wish to cluster the SIP Proxy Registrar or Conference Manger you will want to be sure to install each component as a separate node. The Turn Server is optional; however, if you plan to allow external access or have an intricately set up internal network you will want to install and configure the Turn Server to ensure media will work. The Bandwidth Manager is completely optional and can be installed/configured later, if needed.
  9. 9. 9 | 2013 IBM Corporation Additional Components Needed By Sametime DB2 stores information regarding your deployment. DB2 will include data such as meeting rooms, server version information, cluster information, deployment information, etc. LDAP is a directory that stores information for users and will include information about a user's (name, password, email, etc.)
  10. 10. 10 | 2013 IBM Corporation LDAP Server In order to take advantage of the new Sametime components and the features they offer, an LDAP server must be configured and available for use.
  11. 11. 11 | 2013 IBM Corporation DB2 Server At the core of every install is the DB2 server which stores the databases for our various servers. It contains information ranging from anything like setup and Deployment Plans, to the actual Meeting Server Rooms themselves.
  12. 12. 12 | 2013 IBM Corporation Examples of Deployments Internal High Availability (HA) deployment External High Availability (HA) deployment
  13. 13. 13 | 2013 IBM Corporation Internal HA Deployment
  14. 14. 14 | 2013 IBM Corporation External HA Deployment
  15. 15. 15 | 2013 IBM Corporation External HA Deployment In order to allow external connections to the the environment there are two main solutions. First solution: The user needs VPN access to the environment. Note: VPN will not necessarily negate the need for a Turn Server for media to work properly. Second Solution: Components will need publicly available hostnames and the firewall needs to be configured to allow connections to these servers. There is no way to make a distinction in the configuration for internal vs external client access. Therefore, hostnames you give to the Sip Proxy Registrar and Turn Server must resolve in internal and external DNS (Split-Horizon DNS). Additionally, be sure the DNS domains match on hostnames so that SSO can work properly between the various server components.
  16. 16. 16 | 2013 IBM Corporation Other Deployments The deployments we discussed are in no way the only deployments available but offer some of our more common scenarios. If additional redundancy is needed additional servers and/or secondary nodes may be installed.
  17. 17. 17 | 2013 IBM Corporation Virtualization When planning a VM environment careful consideration should go into what hardware is available. When comparing the system requirements to available resources verify that each individual VM meets or exceeds the minimum resources. In other words if you have a VM host server with 4 gigabytes of memory and 4 cores this will only be able to support one server (or possibly 2 servers) since each server will only receive a subset of those resources.
  18. 18. 18 | 2013 IBM Corporation Client Deployment The Sametime Client you will want to have installed is 8.5.2 IFR1 with the security hotfix. The Notes version does not correspond to the Sametime version
  19. 19. 19 | 2013 IBM Corporation Field Support Services Can Help!
