Some of the determining factors are well known algorithms in the financial world. Specifically I am thinking ......

What is a BizTalk "Host Instance"?

This distinction may be confusing to BizTalk newcomers because when navigating through the BizTalk Admin Console, hosts and host instances are viewed separately.
