Planning Your Commerce Server Installation

You must make some planning decisions before developing and deploying your Microsoft Commerce Server 2000 installation. To successfully develop and deploy Commerce Server, it is important that you carefully consider these planning issues and research the implications by consulting other areas of Commerce Server 2000 Help.

Planning your Commerce Server implementation is the first and perhaps most crucial phase in the Planning-Developing-Deploying-Managing cycle. This is because planning your site carefully, including taking future growth into account, can prevent the need to make expensive and time-consuming modifications later.

Five tightly integrated sub-systems comprise Commerce Server. In addition to planning for these sub-systems, you will need to plan for the management and administration of your implementation. The topics in this section cover planning for each of the sub-systems.
