I am new to SharePoint 2010 and want to learn first how to setup an environment for DEVELOPMENT, STAGING and PRODUCTION. I am actually looking for a diagram which caters all three farms.

I would appreciate if someone can help me for the diagram.

Check out the "Logical Architecture Planning" parts of TechNet - there you got the most of it: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff829836.aspx

Also check the "Design Content Deployment" article at: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262004.aspx

Rewriting it here is one heck of a job :-)


It's bit hard to answer your question with just a diagram but here we go...

If you are looking how to setup all these servers here is an article on SharePoint 2010 ALM with Team Foundation Server, diagram: enter image description here

If you are looking how to configure your environment for something like this check the article I wrote for v2007, the diagram: enter image description here


Without knowing what you need, probably 1 limited deployment for your DEV

And 2x small farms for your stage and prod (remembering you want your stage and prod to be the same)
