Solution Accelerator for FIM 2010 deployment available

Microsoft has established a long tradition in delivering guidance for the deployment of all kinds of infrastructure building blocks. The latest such building block is the FIM 2010 Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide.

This guide describes the process of planning a Forefront Identity Manager infrastructure. It addresses the following fundamental decisions and tasks:

  • Defining the project scope by identifying which FIM features will be needed and the connected data sources and user population in scope.
  • Mapping the features and scope into the FIM server roles that will be required.
  • Designing the infrastructure for the FIM Synchronization Service, FIM Service, and Certificate Management.
  • Designing the placement and fault tolerance of the supporting SQL Server databases.

Following the instructions in this guide will result in a design that is sized, configured, and appropriately placed to deliver the stated business benefits, while also considering the performance, capacity, and fault tolerance of the system.

This guide addresses the scenarios most likely to be encountered by someone designing a FIM infrastructure. Customers should consider having their architecture reviewed by Microsoft Customer Service and Support prior to implementation as that organization is best able to comment on the supportability of a particular design.
