Lync Server 2010 provides multiple server roles to scale to your enterprise's needs and purpose.
The Enterprise Edition scales up the capacity of the Standard Edition server to provide higher capacity and higher availability. The Director redirects user connections to the user's home server or home pool. The Edge Servers are deployed in the network perimeter to enable connectivity outside the organization's private network. A reverse proxy is required to expose Lync Web services to remote users.
The Archiving Server performs server-side archiving of all IM communications. The Monitoring Server gathers CDR and Quality of Experience (QoE) data.
