Scale-out Application Tier Servers for TFS 2010

July 24th, 2010

Just a quick post about scaling out Application Tier servers in TFS 2010.

To Scale-out TFS 2010 and Windows Sharepoint, you can follow the TFS Guides, and it’s usually a fairly painless process as long as you follow all of the pre-requisites. Scaling out SQL Reporting Services does have a slightly bigger gotchya though.

Unless you’ve installed SQL Server Enterprise Edition, you cannot scale out your SQL RS, as you will simply get a message saying it’s an unsupported feature.

This can be something of a kick in the teeth if you’ve successfully scaled out everything else, and then fail at the last hurdle…

The good news is, SQL Server 2008 Standard can be very easily upgraded to Enterprise Edition without disrupting your SQL RS instance, it’s just a case of running the Enterprise install media and following the upgrade option.
