The OpsMgr 2012 Design Guide consists of sections that step you through the design for your Operations Manager 2012 implementation. This guide will help you understand the building-block-level components in Operations Manager 2012 by presenting summaries of these roles. It will help you to ask the right questions to make sure your design meets your company's needs. It will make sure that you have answered the most fundamental design questions to ensure your design is flexible and scalable. It will help you plan and size your Operations Manager 2012 topology using data from our learning’s from internal Microsoft deployments.

One of the big benefits of this guide is that it is concise (10 pages in total) and will give you a good understanding of the new design changes and covers new topics such as resource pools, RMS Removal, design consideration for .Net Application Monitoring. I highly recommend anyone upgrading or starting a new deployment to read this design guide.

Thanks to our UA writer Steve M for working on this and the numerous folks that contributed to it.
