SharePoint 2010 White Papers

I put together a collection of white papers and diagrams from Microsoft site, which are related to SharePoint 2010 deployment and configuration. Some of them are extremely useful when it comes to planning a new SharePoint installation or preparing technical documentation. I organized SharePoint Server 2010 resources into three categories, trying to match MOF phases – plan, deliver, operate. All other resources are grouped under specific server they relate to, namely Foundation, Search, FAST, Project Server, etc.
