BizTalk360 - Dynamic Topology diagram

Posted at: 2/13/2012 at 7:42 PM by saravana

We have done consulting work for various organisation, typically the BizTalk environment topology diagram is drawn in Visio and stored somewhere in document a repository like SharePoint. Depending on the size of the organisation, there will be various environments like SIT, UAT, Staging, Performance, Production, etc and it will be a time consuming task to keep the diagrams up to date. Majority of the time the diagrams will quickly go out of sync when more servers are added/removed to the environment, not representing the real topology.

BizTalk360, solves this problem by intelligently generating the topology diagram on the fly. This solves few issues

  • You don't need to spend time generating topology diagrams in Visio.
  • Your diagram is always in Sync with the real environment, since it's generated based on the current configuration.
  • The diagram is readily available on the tool you use to support, so you don't need to hunt for them in your document repository.
  • Diagram got inbuilt zoom-in/zoom-out capability if your environment is complex (ex: 6 BizTalk server , 4 SQL Servers)
