We have purchased EAServer and are going to use it for an Intranet
application. There will be 50-100 users using the application server on a
daily basis.

The server that we are considering purchasing will have the following
configuration. Does anyone know if this will provide enough horsepower for
quick access for the number of users that we have accessing the application
server?

Intel Pentium III
733 (or better) MHz
quad processor capable (initially only two processors)
512 MB SDRAM (expandable to at least 2 GB with enough sockets to add chips
without swapping old ones out)
RAID 5
4 - 36GB hot pluggable drives
1.44 MB 3.5" Floppy drive
Network adapter (100 m/bit Ethernet)

Thanks for any input that you can provide.

Plenty of horsepower. Of course, number of users is not as important as number
of requests per user per second. If eah of your 100 users makes 1 method call
per day, you could probably use a 486...no that's CPU type, not Mhz (remember
those days).

We have a Dual 400mhz running NT Server and it runs our web-server and
app-server on the same box. It's pretty interactive (not high-intensity, but
busy most of the time), and so far it has handled the load more than admirably.

A lot depends on what else you plan on running on the box, but if you are
putting only the app-server on that box, you should be fine for quite some time
to come. If anything, you will want to add memory when usage gets higher before
you need more CPU's.


HTH,

Don't forget the CD ROM - that's EAS's deployment medium ;-)
