SharePoint Infrastructure Design Specification

After a good while I’ve decided to create a generic SharePoint infrastructure design specification that is very much in line with what I use. The idea is to use the template as a baseline and add only what is correct, remove what is not needed.
This document serves as an infrastructure specification and should be created together with your solution architect. This document does not replace a solution design.

Feel free to use, give any credit you can 🙂

28-12-2016: Updated Design to match SharePoint 2016 installation as default. Minor typos and updates. Added additional security requirements and service descriptions.
26-09-2016: I’ve created an example of the simplest SP farm setup possible. This will show the document in on of the most reduced forms. This shows a single SharePoint server, hosting an intranet with a search service application.

Criticism – Organizational/Personal – Perspective

This article will give you some perspective on criticism. Both in the form of understanding, but also as a tool to work with. This has been referenced from the idea development post, as criticism can also be a tool to refine ideas.
