BizTalk Server 2009 Operations


In this chapter, we cover BizTalk Server 2009 operations, which include configuration, management, scalability, high availability, backup, restore, and disaster recovery. A well-designed and developed BizTalk system can realize its full potential only when married with a well-architected and managed BizTalk operations environment, BizTalk Server 2009 provides a number of features and tools to improve the operations experience for IT staff. This chapter covers the critical management tasks necessary to ensure a BizTalk system is operating at a high level of performance and availability. In this chapter, you will find discussions of the following topics:
  • Configuration and management: We discuss the administrative features in BizTalk Server 2009 involving configuration and management. We detail the features of the BizTalk Server Administration Console such as the management of groups, applications, parties, and platform settings. The administration tools and artifacts that accompany BizTalk Server have matured to provide both developers and IT staff with intuitive means to manage, deploy, monitor, and secure production BizTalk systems.

  • Scalability and high availability: We present the various features of BizTalk Server 2009 and options to consider when designing and implementing a BizTalk system to be both performant and robust in support of a productive and profitable business. We also present the options for scaling out to additional servers for performance and redundancy or scaling up the power of existing hardware to improve throughput. BizTalk Server 2009 provides features such as support for native 64-bit execution on x64 and Windows clustering that can improve performance and uptime.
