Architecting SharePoint

Thursday, October 7, 2010

I have recently been investigating the options for Architecting SharePoint Servers for a few projects. I have come across a few sites and tools that may be of use to anyone in a similar position who is not typically a SharePoint Architect. These days everything is virtual which is great for setting up server farms at a lower cost than would have traditionally been possible.

This Tool from HP helps to determine the hardware requirements of SharePoint Systems. I find it useful as a report can be exported to clients and it gives full details of the various partitions that should be setup for SharePoint 2010 databases.

I am sure there are plenty more useful resources – if you know of any let me know and I will keep this list updated with any that I find.
