Microsoft Viridian Solutions Accelerator is here!

Excerpt from the newly added IPD docs. I already have the older ones since I'm on the list.

In early 2005, the MSA series was updated and rebranded as Windows Server System® Reference Architecture (WSSRA). Although there have been some minor updates and an occasional new service added to the WSSRA platform, there has not been a major revision to the guidance since 2005.
WSSRA is a complex set of guidance spanning more than 3,500 pages of content. According to surveys that were conducted, this material—while valuable—was difficult for readers to consume.
The IPD series is the next step in the evolution of architectural guidance for Microsoft infrastructure. IPD is designed to make the consumption of architectural guidance easier for the reader. Over time, the services covered by WSSRA will be updated and placed in the IPD format. Initially, the IPD series will focus on helping the reader to architect individual technologies such as Windows Server virtualization, Windows Server 2008 Active Directory®, and Windows Deployment Services.
