The Infrastructure and Planning Design Series (IPD) are a series of Solution Accelerators which provide guidance and best practices when making decisions about implementing new technologies.

There are approximately 30 IPDs available for download and are available for all sorts of technologies such as:
It’s even possible to join a beta program to help analyze new IPDs as these are added!
I definitely encourage anybody in the beginning stages of the planning and design phase to check out these great solution accelerators which can be easily downloaded here.
