Applies To: Windows Azure Pack

This architectural overview suggests machine topologies for required and optional components in both express and distributed deployments.

In an express deployment, all of the Windows Azure Pack required components are installed on the same machine. You should then install at least one optional component on additional machines.
Express deployment sample architecture

In a distributed deployment, you can install the required components on up to 8 machines. You should then install at least one optional component on additional machines. The following diagram shows a basic distributed architecture of required components for a system designed to provide services to external customers.

Basic distributed architecture

The following diagram shows depicts the suggested minimal architecture for a distributed deployment. You should then install at least one optional component on additional machines.

Windows Azure Pack distirbuted deployment

The following diagram shows a distributed deployment using load balancers and failover clusters with scaling information. You should then install at least one optional component on additional machines.
