I am a newbie. I read the following from on the page
Migration of existing instances of SQL Server to a failover cluster
First, you must collect current baselines for the existing servers, noting any existing bottlenecks. Assuming baseline performance statistics provide the following needs, and that a single drive with mount points would cover drive requirements, that would
leave you with the following configuration:
SQL Server 1 - 8 processors, 16 GB of RAM
SQL Server 2 - 4 processors, 8 GB of RAM (needs RAM, plan for 12 GB)
SQL Server 3 – 2 processors, 16GB of RAM (baseline shows need for additional processors)
SQL Server 4 – 4 processors, 8 GB of RAM (needs additional network bandwidth, add network adapters for 4 dedicated connections)
To replace these four servers, the cluster node would require the following minimum configuration:
18 processors, 54 GB of RAM, and 6 network adapters
I have the following questions.
* What is the meaning of "to replace these four servers"?
