Hardware Requirements - Sharepoint + Biztalk

  Asked By: Wendy    Date: Apr 24    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1005

My client is interested in a single server implementation (Web, Index,
Job, SQL) of Sharepoint. I recommended the following:

• 1 X 2.4-GHz Pentium-4 Processor
• 1-GB Main memory
• 100-GB Hard disk
• Embedded 10/100/1000-GB Ethernet Interface card (NIC)

Now, they want to know if Biztalk can be run on the same box. Any

I would be looking to beef up the Memory to at least 4 GB and add at least a 2nd processor. Biztalk can be pretty intensive on Memory and CPU.

Does having 2 processors need 2 Sharepoint and 2 Biztalk licenses? I
think I read something like that. Is this correct?

Also, what is the recommended hardware  config for < 10,000 users?

Impossible to discern from the information given below. However, I would
never deploy SharePOint on a box  with less than 2GB of RAM.

Answer #4    Answered By: Titus Sweet     Answered On: Apr 24

you do mean single  server deployments?

if it were let me also say that having a dual backplane with at least 6 drives
in 3 arrays might also be a good idea. sounds like someone is investing a lot
of money in software but not much in hardware  .
