Plan your system topology carefully before deploying Microsoft Dynamics AX. Environments for development, testing, and production should be carefully optimized for throughput, response time, scalability, and availability. The following topics describe considerations in planning your system topology:
Active Directory user topology
Considerations for base components
Considerations for required components
Considerations for integration components
Considerations for global deployment
This section describes network and system topologies, not how a Microsoft Dynamics AX system communicates internally. For information on internal Microsoft Dynamics AX architecture, see System architecture.
You need to make sure that your planned topology is supported by Microsoft. For more information, contact your value added reseller (VAR). If you are enrolled in a support plan directly with Microsoft, you can log on to CustomerSourceand submit a new support request.
