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

So, if you don’t want to spend several days applying all configuration manually, this is the solution:

In fact, this easy way works so well, that Sitecore took it and implement it on SC9 as an out-of-the-box feature. You can see it in the official SC9 documentation:
