During implementation phase, you work from design documents created during deployment design to build out the deployment architecture and implement the deployment. Depending on the nature of your deployment project, this phase includes some or all of the following steps:
Creating and deploying pilot and/or prototype deployments in a test environment
Designing and running functional tests to measure compliance with system requirements
Designing and running stress tests to measure performance under peak loads
Creating a production deployment, which might be phased into production in stages
Once a deployment is in production, you need to continue to monitor, test, and tune the deployment to ensure that it fulfills the business goals.
