Persistent Chat

Group Chat has been rebranded as Persistent Chat starting with Lync Server 2013, and both the client and the server components have finally been integrated with the rest of Lync. The installation bits come on the same media, and the setup process for Persistent Chat has been moved into Topology Builder like any other role; also, the Lync Control Panel includes a section for room management. Persistent Chat has gained high-availability and disaster recovery capabilities similar to Front End Servers, and now scales to 15,000 endpoints per room. SQL Mirroring is used to provide high availability for the back end in a similar fashion to the Front End databases.
