Our Univention Corporate Server (UCS) architecture documentation has grown with more content and will continue to grow. In this article, I will give you an overview of the newly added content, introduce another level of detail for administrators and solution architects, and share some of the experiences we have gained over the past few months with the new approach of iteratively delivering new documentation.
