Microsoft have released a white paper on how they have deployed Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.

This white paper covers:

  • Teams at Microsoft that were involved in the development, deployment, and ongoing management of the solution.
  • Background on Enterprise Search at Microsoft.
  • Business values achieved in deploying the Enterprise Search solution.
  • Architectural design of the solution.
  • Products and technologies used in creating the solution.
  • Administration of the shared search services for the solution.
  • Administration of indexed sites and content for the solution.
  • User experience when using the Enterprise Search solution.
  • Migration of Enterprise Search from Microsoft Office SharePoint Portal Server 2003 to Office SharePoint Server 2007.
  • The best practices that Microsoft used in developing and deploying the solution.

I’d say this is must read, for me and for you all SharePoint aficionados out there!
