CRM2011 + SQL Server 2008R2 on same server - Need Hardware Requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are building a CRM2011 Server with SQL Server 2008R2 installed on the same server.

    What are the RAM + CPU + HDD requirements?

    This is for a Dev/Test environment.

  • You can see the MS recommendations for separate CRM and SQL Servers in the implementation guide

    For a single server in a Dev/Test, and assuming not too heavy a data or processing load, I'd go for:

    • 2 or 4 core CPU. 2 core is OK if only a few (say <10) concurrent users
    • Minimum 8 GB RAM - this tends to have the greatest performance impact
    • Disk depends on the size of your organisation databases, and the biggest impact on that is if you store a lot of attachments. With not too much data, 100 GB should be fine
