HP releases High Availability Server Deployment Configurations for VSTS

Filed under: VSTS — sanjaynarang @ 10:47 am

HP released a paper on High Availability Server Deployment Configurations for VSTS. This paper provides server deployment configurations and bills of material for four server deployments for Microsoft Visual Studio Team System. A one server configuration for 10 to 50 users on tower- or rack-based system, a rack server configuration for 10-500 users, a scaled out configuration for 100 to 500 users and a HP BladeSystem configuration for the largest user count of 500 to 3500 users.

Snippets from the paper:
HP has developed a method of providing high availability for Team Foundation Server using HP Systems Insight Manager and tools from HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack.

This solution uses Systems Insight Manager to monitor Team Foundation Server for a failure and then enables a standby server to come up in its place. Using HP Systems Insight Manager and HP ProLiant Essentials Rapid Deployment Pack the services from Foundation Server can be highly available to mission critical deployments of VSTS.
