This guide has been updated for R3 and now includes Forefront Endpoint Protection! This guide leads the reader through the process of planning a Configuration Manager infrastructure and optionally a Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) infrastructure. The guide has been revised to include new enhancements in Configuration Manager 2007 R3 such as enhanced scalability and performance, power management, operating system deployment improvements and more. FEP uses Configuration Manager’s capabilities to perform tasks such as deploying antimalware clients, enforcing security policies on endpoints, managing devices, and alerting administrators to events related to FEP.
Infrastructure Planning and Design streamlines the planning process by:
• Defining the technical decision flow through the planning process.
• Listing the decisions to be made and the commonly available options and considerations.
• Relating the decisions and options to the business in terms of cost, complexity, and other characteristics.
• Framing decisions in terms of additional questions to the business to ensure a comprehensive alignment with the appropriate business landscape.
