I want to tip you about a serie of documents that I often use in System Center projects.
The Infrastructure Planning and Design (IPD) series provides guidance for Microsoft infrastructure products. The series is a collection of documents that leads the reader through a sequence of core decision points to design an infrastructure for Microsoft products. It also provides a means to validate design decisions with the business to ensure that the solution meets the requirements for both business and infrastructure stakeholders.
The IPD documents are designed to be used by the following IT personnel:
- Infrastructure planners and architects who have a firm operational grasp of the technology.
- Partners and consultants who design infrastructure solutions.
- Business managers who want to understand how the technology decisions being made both support and affect the business.
