The scaled-out, distributed configuration topology for System Center Mobile Device Manager (MDM) is the recommended configuration for a production enterprise environment. This configuration allows for the greatest security, availability, and scalability.

The following are highlighted by number in the diagram:

The scaled-out, distributed topology diagram does not include other required components of the MDM system such as a domain controller, certification authority, and a Microsoft® SQL Server® database. However, the additional components are required when you configure MDM by using this topology.

In addition, you should configure a secure Web publishing proxy to use from the perimeter network to publish the external Enrollment Web site.

Note:
For each MDM topology, the Active Directory Domain Services, certification authority server, the computer that is running Microsoft SQL Server, MDM Device Management Server, and MDM Enrollment Server must be in the same site. However, servers that are running MDM Gateway Server do not have to be in the same geographical site. Active Directory, the certification authority server, the computer that is running SQL Server, MDM Device Management Server, and MDM Enrollment Server must be in the same domain.
