Windows Server System Reference Architecture (WSSRA)
Windows Server System Reference Architecture (WSSRA) delivers architectural guidance for the Windows Server 2003 environment. For design guidance for Windows Server 2008 environments, see the Infrastructure Planning and Design link on this page.
- Note: For Windows Server 2008 environments, see Infrastructure Planning and Design.
Windows Server System Reference Architecture is a technology architecture that has been rigorously tested and proven in a partnered lab environment to provide exceptional planning and implementation guidance that addresses fundamental Windows Server 2003 infrastructure issues such as availability, security, scalability, and manageability of the platform.
The Overview Documents provide the supporting information that will aid the understanding of the documentation set and ensure its most effective use.
Architecture Blueprints provide IT professionals with a common understanding of overriding principles prior to leveraging guidance on specific IT services.
The Implementation Guides provide fully integrated sets of service-specific guidance for each of the services covered as part of WSSRA. Each implementation guide package contains an introduction document, a service blueprint, a planning guide, a build guide, and an operations guide.
The Deployment Toolkit provides all of the low-level scripts, plans, and configuration settings used to build the environment in which WSSRA was established and tested.
