A Moderate Team Foundation Server Topology
This topic describes a moderately complex Team Foundation Server topology, with Team Foundation Server components installed to separate server nodes and accessed by clients in multiple domains.
Moderate Server Topology
The following diagram demonstrates a moderately complex Team Foundation Server topology:
In this example, the Team Foundation Server services are deployed on one application-tier server node and the Team Foundation Server databases are installed on a separate data-tier server node. Team Foundation Build and the team's test rig (agents) are deployed to additional sever nodes. In this diagram, the domain ContosoTest.Contoso.com represents a child domain located in the same office as the parent domain. The child domain has a 2-way transitive trust relationship with Contoso.com. Users/clients in the child domain can access the server and are automatically authenticated using Windows integrated authentication. In this configuration, there is no need for Team Foundation Server Proxy and it is not installed.
Topologies of this complexity are targets for larger development teams in the range of 50 to 500 users.
