hardware requirment for multiple organization RRS feed

  • Question

  • Good Morning,

    I'm searching some documentation about Crm 4.0 multitenancy deployment.

    In particular how to calculate hardware requirement for a 10 organization deployment.. SqlServer RAM and disck space and Web Server RAM and disck space.

    Thancks

    Edo

  • As Jamie mentioned, if you have enough users, you may need clustered db servers, but with 100 users (10 organizations, 10 users / org), I'd imagine your overall requirements for a database server are fairly low. Depending on whether the users are going to be running reports, or doing heavy uploads on a regular basis, I'd say a standard 4-8Gig RAM and (again, depending on the amount of data), 50-100gig hard drive space should be sufficient. With simple storage so cheap these days, if you can throw more at it, you might as well. 

     

    Bear in mind this doesn't bring optimization or any kind of performance tuning into play, but to get it working, that should get you started. You can always look at ways to increase performance on an as-required basis (with clustering, or changing the hardware configuration of the servers involved).

     

    Hope that helps,

  • http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd979161.aspx has the requirements.  They are not different per organization.  If you have enough simultaneous users you might want to think about either clustered db servers or load balanced app servers.

  • It appears you are right that it only does publish requirements for the app server.  The implementation guide for 2011 does supply SQL requirements also.

    Anyways,  I would use the recommended hardware for SQL Server 2005 and Windows Server 2003 as a guide though as those were the standard early on in the 4.0 days.

  • I,ve 10 Organization and 10 users per Organization.

    I can't find the SQL Server Hardware requirement.
