The infrastructure planning and design process typically starts during the requirements gathering phase of the implementation project. This process is led by the solution architect, project manager, and the customer IT team.
Unless software is supported by the right hardware, it will never be able to reach its full potential. Sizing the infrastructure is laying the groundwork for success. Sizing the right hardware is not only important for getting an accurate budget for your Dynamics AX project, but also vital to how the system will function and perform after the implementation and for years to come.
This chapter will cover the following topics:
Dynamics AX components and architecture
Capacity planning and infrastructure estimation
Planning system topologies
Industry best practices and recommendations
