Microsoft Infrastructure-as-a-Service Product Line Architecture – Fabric Architecture & Fabric Management Architecture Guide


I get a ton of queries on how do we architect or build a Hybrid and Private Cloud from customers. In such a scenario, the most commonly referred to documentation that I refer to is the Infra-As-A-Service Product Line Architecture (PLA).

Microsoft provides PLA's from a variety of workloads and Line of Business architecture guidance. The PLA's, are a series of prescriptive guidance documents, that help you architect/ design your workloads on the basis of certain stringent testing and architecture guidance that we have put together thru years of sustained knowledge gathering. I hope this IAAS PLA documentation helps you put together an agile, elastic and highly scalable Private/ Hybrid Cloud IAAS in place.
