Microsoft has made available for download resources designed to provide IT professionals with a better understanding of the deployment options at their disposal. The three files .pdf, .vsd, and .xps contain the same information on Office 2010 deployment options, and can be grabbed from the link given below. “The deployment architecture for Microsoft Office 2010 is primarily the same as the 2007 Microsoft Office system. One difference is that Office 2010 now requires Office Volume Activation technologies, such as Key Management Service (KMS), Multiple Activation Key (MAK), MAK Proxy, or a combination of these, for participation in any volume licensing programs. In addition, Office 2010 introduces native 64-bit versions of Office products. In Office 2010, the Office Customization Tool (OCT) and the Config.xml file remain the tools for customization of an installation before the deployment option is chosen,” Microsoft noted.
