Office 365 One to Many Sharing through Azure

Extranet User Manager President and Microsoft MVP Peter Carson will be presenting from 2:15 - 3:15 PM in MPR A.  His One to Many Sharing session is intended for scenarios where you need to publish content to a broad external user audience. They don't need to collaborate, they just need to be able to easily consume that content. This could be your public website, or a private site you want to share securely with a particular audience.

In this session, we'll take you through both public and private scenarios where you want to share your Office 365 content externally. While out of the box in Office 365 you can anonymously share individual documents, there is no way to share a whole site anonymously. We'll show you how we leverage Azure websites to do this very cost effectively.

Our main scenario is one of our clients, OntarioMD (www.ontariomd.ca). Their new public website is authored in Office 365, and then the approval and publishing process pushes that to Microsoft Azure. Hosted in Azure’s massively scalable infrastructure for a very reasonable cost, this provides a secure, highly available website. We then extend that and allow registered users to access additional private information through the same site, and supporting apps.
