Microsoft Systems Architecture (MSA)

Microsoft understands that IT Professionals are under increasing pressure to deliver scalable architectures in tight timeframes. Research alone can consume many months, after which development and testing may only reveal flaws in the initial design. Therefore, the Microsoft Systems Architecture program was chartered to provide IT Professional with reference architectures, prescriptive guidance, operations architectures, service models, and support models for the predominant data center configurations.

The Reference architecture allows customers to build a scalable, reliable, available, secure, and manageable environment using a recommended set of tools, technologies, and processes. Prescriptive guidance provides hardware and software configuration recommendations required to build this infrastructure in a production environment. An operations architecture, leveraging the Microsoft Operations Framework, provides a context for building a comprehensive data center management and operations environment. A service model addresses the complete lifecycle—pre-sales, envisioning, planning, building, deploying, and operating—of a standardized data center infrastructure in a reliable, consistent manner within known costs that meet the business, application, and IT requirements of the organization.
