Why a picture is worth 1000 words

I have recently been working with a colleague on a new client implementation, putting together some options for a farm design. We came up with three different options, all with differing server layouts and SQL configurations. Trying to articulate these designs to a non technical audience can be almost as challenging as building the final solution, if you are with the client you can always sketch out your ideas on a whiteboard or flipchart, but documenting your design for a distributed audience is always a problem.

This is when Visio comes to your aid, Microsoft have some specific Visio shapes available for SharePoint and Project Server.

You can download the shapes from here http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=21480

These allow you to create your own TechNet style diagrams for SharePoint, below is an example I made earlier…
