If you’re looking at deploying Windows Server 2008 into your infrastructure anytime in the near future, then you need to take a look at the Infrastructure Planning and Design (IPD) series  documents.  They provide guidance to help lead you through a sequence of core decision points for designing a Windows Server 2008 infrastructure.  They also provide a means to validate design decisions with the business to ensure that the solution meets the requirements of 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.
