Planning a Lync Server 2013 Deployment on Virtual Servers

Too often with the best of intentions we see people get this wrong so I thought I’d share this paper.  This paper provides guidance for deploying Lync Server 2013 on virtual servers. It includes recommendations for the configuration of host servers and guest servers, key health indicators to watch during testing and deployment, and observations from Microsoft performance testing of Lync Server 2013 in a virtual environment.
