Microsoft Private Cloud Fast Track Guidance Set

Recently Microsoft released a set of documents assisting you to implement a private cloud solution.

As Microsoft states: ‘…Customers can use this guidance to implement a private cloud solution with hardware they already own or purchase…’.

The guidance set consists out of these documents:

  • Reference Architecture Guide:
    This guide details a reference architecture that incorporates many Microsoft product and consulting team best practices.  The architecture is the foundation for a highly available, scalable, secure, and manageable private cloud with high performance.  While all organizations will find it of value, it will prove most useful to medium through large enterprise environments.
  • Reference Deployment Guide:
    This guide provides detailed installation and configuration steps to deploy the physical architecture detailed in the reference architecture guide.
  • Reference Operations Guide:
    This guide includes many of the operational tasks that are often executed in a private cloud environment

The whole set can be downloaded from this location.
