Sitecore – howtos and useful links

Sitecore Content Delivery Role:
On this page you will find all related to howto configure the servers:
https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/82/setting_up_and_maintaining/xdb

This page has a summary about the scalability options. It is useful to understand why we split Sitecore into CM and CD:
https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/82/setting_up_and_maintaining/xdb/platform/scalability_options

Here is the full explanation about how to configure a CA server:
https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/82/setting_up_and_maintaining/xdb/configuring_servers/configure_a_content_management_server

https://doc.sitecore.net/sitecore_experience_platform/82/setting_up_and_maintaining/xdb/configuring_servers/configure_a_content_delivery_server
