Requirements to run Microsoft Project Server 2010 effectively on a windows 2008 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • What do I require to install Microsoft Project Server on a windows 2008 server besides:  
    -SQL Server 2008 R2 and Sharepoint server 2010 (I will need to buy this software). 
    What licenses do I need for a user to access the PWA site to make changes and do I ideally need one user with Microsoft Project Professional installed on their machine to have the extra functionality?
    How much would it cost roughly to do the above providing I have the 2008 Windows server already?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • Hi Mark

    To me the question seems to be more of licensing requirement than technical, licensing depends upon the kind of relationship/ agreement your organization have with MS

    hence it would vary , Please go through the document here http://download.microsoft.com/download/F/8/8/F88B3241-3E27-4BDD-8A01-ABF2422FB31C/Project%202010%20Licensing%20-%20Licensing%20Guide.pdf which in turn will give you fair amount of licensing requirement needs and then consult your MS account manager further

    Hope this helps

  • Mark ,

     

    From a licensing perspective i would suggest you employ someone or a company that specialises in MS licensing as it could become complicated to work out which options are the best for you.  I would also suggest you look on Microsofts site for Project Server Partners in the country that you are located, they should also be able to advice you a bit more.

  • I think you should first conduct a study and see what is the size needed for your EPM Solution works, or how many users will have, how many simultaneous accesses, the data stream provided ... things like these.
    After a study of this you will surely have an idea of ​​what hardware and how many software licenses you need. To help you, use that data from Microsoft:
       - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee683978.aspx >> In relation to Hardware and Software
       - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh297440.aspx >> Regarding the architecture necessary;
    After this analysis, I recommend the following indicated by Andre Vetere and looking for a Partner to assist you in implementing the EPM Solution, or hire or train employees in your company to accomplish such a deployment.
    Remembering always that you must have both a production environment as a Dev environment (if possible a Quality Assurance as well)
