Small, Medium and Large Farm Deployment

Farm Deployment

Diametriks identifies the deployment roadmap that most closely matches the architecture that you require for your organization, and then follow associated procedures to complete your installation.

Small farm deployment

A small farm deployment can support a small- to medium-sized organization and can be used by a large organization to test Microsoft Project Server. Based on your organizational requirement, a small farm can be deployed in one-tier or two-tier configuration.

  • One tier: The front-end web server, application server, and the database server all reside on the same computer.
  • Two tier: The front-end web server and application server reside together on the same computer, and the database server resides on another computer.
Medium farm deployment

Medium farm deployment is required for a slightly larger organization. A basic medium-sized custom farm consist of one or two front-end web servers, a single application server and one database server or two clustered database servers which provides appropriate performance and efficiency to the application.

Large farm deployment

A medium farm can be increased in size to meet the needs of a much larger company by adding additional servers on the web and application tiers. The database tier can also be clustered with additional database servers to include multiple clusters.

A farm can also be integrated with Microsoft SharePoint Server and use other services such as Search, Index, or Excel Calculation Services.

Large farm deployment is beneficial to organization having over 5000 users. Additional benefits delivered through large farm deployment include – disaster management, portal collaboration and many more.
