2 front end servers, 2 Batch/App servers and 1 physical SQL server. We currently do not have a physical load balancer for the environment.

I've read technet for best practices but I was wondering if anybody knew of a resource that would list out the recommended plan for which services should run on which server.

Any help or recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

In addition, Microsoft is pushing the Streamlined Topology model, which fits with SharePoint Online - http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=37000.

There are no cookie-cutter farms. Farms must be architected to fit your business requirements.


it is open end question, its depend on the what services you need and how much the user load on it. I would recommend the below topology diagram from MSFT which give you best pictures.
