Installation Overview for BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2


This document describes the process for installing and configuring BizTalk Server 2013 R2 and BizTalk Server 2013 on a single computer.

Microsoft recommends that you read this entire document before beginning your installation. This is because BizTalk Server connects many disparate components both internal and external to your enterprise so information can flow smoothly and securely in many directions. While even the most basic single-server deployment relies on many variables, most real-world deployment scenarios extend much farther to include multiple servers and eventually clusters of both physical and virtual computers.

No two deployments of BizTalk Server are the same. Before you begin the installation process, gather information on the needs of your enterprise, and discuss the scope of your deployment with the IT Professionals, System Administrators, and Developers who use BizTalk Server. By studying this document and carefully analyzing the specific needs of your enterprise, you will eventually create your own deployment roadmap.

This section provides a high-level blueprint of the installation process. Installation on a single computer usually takes 4-6 hours. Note that each of these steps must be carried out in the order shown, and that each step contains many variables relevant to your enterprise. All of these issues are addressed in later sections of this guide.
