Deploying OpsMgr in Highly Available and Distributed Enterprise Environments Whitepaper Released

Hey All,

Finally I got around to compiling this whitepaper which gives advice and recommendations on planning, installing and configuring OpsMgr in enterprise environments. The document covers some advanced deployment tips such as the use of gateway servers to span WAN links and also covers some often overlooked best practices around High Availability and Business Continuity. This whitepaper has been a long time in the making and consolidates the experience I have gathered over the past year implementing some of the largest and most complex OpsMgr infrastructures to date.

Thanks to Pete Zerger and SystemCenterForum for serving as tech editor and or course hosting the document which can be downloaded HERE.
