Infrastructure Planning and Design Guides—Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway

The Infrastructure Planning and Design team has released a new guide: Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway.

This guide outlines the critical infrastructure design elements that are key to a successful implementation of Forefront Unified Access Gateway (Forefront UAG). The reader is guided through the logical three-step process of selecting the Forefront UAG features required, determining the number of instances, and designing the infrastructure. If access logging is required, the guide leads the reader through selecting and designing the most appropriate data store.
