Reduction of Remote Access-based Servers in your Edge Network

Updated: October 1, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

This topic describes design considerations for DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2. For the design considerations of DirectAccess in Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG), see the Forefront UAG DirectAccess Design Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=179988).

With DirectAccess, you can reduce your dependence on remote access and application edge servers, leading to an edge network with fewer servers that provide access to intranet resources or applications. For example, the number of application edge servers can be reduced as the number of DirectAccess clients increase because DirectAccess clients can now directly access the corresponding application servers on the intranet.
