A Typical Microsoft Server Environment

10 02 2007

Brief Explanation

To explain the above Server Farm, I would go about describing each Section – Edge, Server and Client


This is the Gateway to the Outer World (Internet/External Network) to our Server Network. Microsoft Forefront Edge Security can be deployed to handle the Security Measures which includes Microsoft Internet and Acceleration Server (ISA)


This is the heart of the Network. It contains all the necessary Servers to manage our Network.

    A Typical Microsoft Server Farm

    Server Farm

  • A Primary Domain Controller (DC) would act as the Global Catalog Master/Operations Master for our Domain
  • An Additional Domain Controller (ADC) can be present to act as a Backup Server if something happens to DC
  • To minimize the Installation and Usage of Applications across many of the Terminal Servers (TS), a Softgrid Application Server can be deployed to manage Applications Virtually across various Clients
  • Microsoft Sharepoint Portal Server and Exchange Server can be optional and they would provide Collaboration Tools to share across the Network or Domain.
  • File Server to store User’s Data globally. Remember, here, as this is considered to be a typical setup, I have put a Single File Server. But as Users Grow and Network also grow, there would be Cluster of File Servers

Microsoft Management Servers, would be Microsoft System Center Products (SM, MOM) which would help to manage the Microsoft Server Infrastructure in a simplified way

  • Microsoft Forefont Server Security Solution would provide the Security Measures across the available Servers


Clients, as shown above, can be,

  • Laptop Users
  • PC Users
  • Thin Client Users

Microsoft Forefront Client Security Solution can be used for Security Measures across the Clients.

Hope this helps a few :), as this is the first version of my Server Environment. I would be doing good detailed study over the available Microsoft Technologies to update this Version.
