  • So what patterns do we as infrastructure folks focus on? I am always concerned with SOA - not sure it will ever mature and agile is tough for infrastructure projects.

     

    Do we have formal performance and capacity patterns in the infrastructure space>?

  • I think it should vary right, based on the your office, employees, customers, vendors, suppliers locations - size of all the above - SLAs - type of applications like web, desktop, SOA, BPM, RIA, Mobile, and finally the new kid Cloud Computing.

  • There are some SOA patterns for infrastructure available.  On the other end, since there is no agreement from any vendor on what SOA is, your pattern will vary depending on who is your vendor.  Also choice of technology like .NET Vs JEE also promotes the diversity in the pattern.  ZapThink has a high level poster on SOA roadmap that can help you ground with a neutral pattern.  Also take a look at www.codeplex.com/AppArch that encompses different architecture types...  Finally, I have published a SOA/BPM reference arch using .NET 3.5 at http://gajakannan.com/netarch.aspx.
