Server Naming Conventions
For complete information about securing your BizTalk Server deployment, see Sample BizTalk Server Architectures.
The following table describes the servers in the Large Distributed Architecture diagram, and their functions.
|Server name in diagram||Function||Description|
|FW4||Firewall||ISA Server between the Internet and the perimeter network.|
|HTTP (Rec)||Web Server||Web server that receives messages for the HTTP adapter. This server does not have BizTalk Server components installed; it has ASP.NET pages that relay the messages to the processing domain. You can use Reverse Proxy from FW 4 to FW 3 instead of the ASP.NET pages. If you use Reverse Proxy, you do not need this server.|
|Exchange (Send)||Mail Server||Mail server that BizTalk Server uses to send SMTP messages.|
|FTP (Send/Receive)||Web Server||Represents the File Transport Protocol (FTP) server from which BizTalk is sending and receiving messages. This can be a remote server.|
|Windows Message Queuing||Message Queuing Server||Standard Windows Message Queuing server, which relays messages to and from the BizTalk Message Queuing adapter in the processing domain.|
|SQL||SQL Server||Server with SQL Server database used by the SQL adapter.|
|File||File Server||Server that has a file directory from which the processing servers in the processing domain drop and pick up files.|
|FW3||Firewall||ISA Server protecting the processing domain from the perimeter network and corporate domain.|
|Processing||Processing Server||This server processes messages. It has the BizTalk Server runtime, Business Rule Engine, and Enterprise Single Sign-On (SSO) service. BizTalk assemblies, host instances, orchestrations, schemas, and maps are on this server. A given processing server can have host instances of different hosts.|
|Receive/Send Server||BizTalk Server dedicated to receiving messages from HTTP and SOAP adapters. A given receive/send server can have host instances of different hosts.|
|Receive/Send Server||BizTalk Server dedicated to receiving messages from SQL, FTP, EDI, File, and BizTalk Message Queuing adapters. A given receive/send server can have host instances of different hosts.|
|Send handler||Receive/Send Server||BizTalk Server dedicated to sending messages for all adapters. A given server can have host instances of different hosts you use for sending messages.|
|FW2||Firewall||ISA Server protecting the services domain from the processing and corporate domains (operation services.)|
|Tracking Host||Tracking Server||Server that has a host instance of the BizTalk Host you use for tracking.|
|Admin tools||Administration Server||Server that has BizTalk Server runtime, the BizTalk Administration console, Health and activity Tracking (HAT), and deployment tools.|
|Master secret server||Master secret server||SSO Server that manages the master secret key for the whole environment. There are no other BizTalk Server components on this computer.|
|HWS Web service||Human Workflow Services Server||Contains the BizTalk Server runtime and the Human Workflow Services (HWS) Web service.|
|FW1||Firewall||ISA Server protecting the data domain and the processing and services domains.|
|Data Server||SQL Server that contains the MessageBox databases. You can have a different SQL Server for each MessageBox database.|
|Data Server||SQL Server that contains the central meta-information store for all BizTalk Servers. The Configuration database contains static information such as the BizTalk Server architecture, items, and partner locations.
It also contains the Business Rule Engine database, which is the default rule store for the BizTalk Business Rule Engine. It serves as a repository for policies and vocabularies.
|Credential||Data Server||SQL Server that contains the Credential database, which Enterprise Single Sign-On uses to store in encrypted form user IDs and credentials for logging onto other systems, and for storing in encrypted form the configuration information form for adapters BizTalk Server uses.|

|Data Server||SQL Server that contains the databases for Human Workflow Services (HWS) and the Base EDI adapter.|
