SCCM High-level Architecture design diagram is available to download. I’ve another post (the latest one) that talks about “SCCM Architecture Decision Making Guide For 2022 Or Later | Best Practices ”
This post deals with I/O performance tests. Also, from the same post, you can get details of a sample scenario with 25k clients. For example, most of the design questions from the hardware specs perspective (for the site server) have been answered.
Which Server do you need to purchase? How much memory? What are the best Disk considerations?CPU and Network configuration?
Some other very useful references are provided and implemented by the Microsoft Internal IT team. This will also help you to design an environment (CM 07 as well as CM 2012).
