SharePoint 2010 Hardware Requirements

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 15, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Hi all, We have a client that wants to use SharePoint 2010 to host the web site. They have the following hardware specifications: Three VMWare hosts. Each have the following: •             HP Proliant DL360 G5 •             CPU: Intel Xeon E5420 2.5Ghz •             32GB Memory •             vSphere 4 Standard •             All the hosts are connected to an EMC SAN via fibre channel connections. Will this be sufficient, or will they need to upgrade their hardware? Thanks in advance

SharePoint 2007 hardware requirements


Can someone confirm that the below specs are sufficient enough to run MOSS 2007.  It will be for about 1500 users/1 WFE and 1 Database server. We are expecting about 100 users logging in same time.

Eventually, I would like to use the same servers as part of our future once we upgrade to SharePoint 2010.  Please let me know if any more info needed.  Dell PowerEdge R810 will be running the below specs...




Server 1: SharePoint WFE and Application Server

2 quad speed 64 bit processors, 2.66Ghz per core

32GB ram

160 GB HD space


Server 2:  SQL/Databaase server

2 quad speed 64 bit processors, 2.66Ghz per core

64 GB Ram

250Gb HD Space


                64-bit Windows Server 2008 Enterprise with SP2

                64-bit SQL Server 2008



System Requirements for Sharepoint Designer 2010


Can I run Sharepoint Designer on an HP mini with only 1GB RAM and Windows Home Starter edition, or will I need to upgrade the RAM and/or OS?  

Not sure what OS or RAM is required, also probably should ask how much disk space is required as well.  

Not trying to do anything custom, just design a basic Sharepoint site with the server end done by a hosting service.

Setting up a hardware load balancer between WFEs and App servers in SharePoint 2010


I am looking for any information I can find about setting up a hardware load balancer between WFEs and App servers in SharePoint 2010.

While the load balancing procedure is simple for WFEs since you just set up DNS to point to network load balancer (NLB) and NLB can be configured to load balance between the WFEs, NLB in this case is sitting outside the farm. How will you insert NLB inside the farm?

I know Application Servers can load balance on their own (WFEs can direct traffic to multiple App Servers) but I want to configure a hardware load balancer nonetheless. I have seen architecture diagrams on TechNet which show NLBs between App and WFEs but no guidance on how it will be configured. Since the app servers will be registered as part of the farm (Configuration DB), how do I tell WFEs to direct traffic to NLB rather than to the App servers directly.


SharePoint 2010 Hardware and usage



I have a windows server 2008 in which i have sharepoint server 2010 installed. This is a development server.

How to make sure that the site collection created in server be accessible to windows 7 box.

 Should the server be having Visual studio 2010, sharepoint designer 2010.

Configuring Profile Image Export in SharePoint 2010

It's no secret that I am thrilled with the new social features of SharePoint 2010. I am most excited about the new Profile Picture handling.

ClientAccessPolicy file in SharePoint 2010

I am upgrading my Silverlight demo code from the old beta to beta 2 and see that there are a few new considerations for the deployment of ClientAccessPolicy.xml files. In a previous post I demonstrated how to do this for SharePoint 2007. The heartburn that I get with that approach is any site collection owner or designer can drag the file into the site collection and open the site up to unwanted client access issues. In 2010 the virtual path provider no longer serves the files from the root of the site collection
