Hardware Requirements

I saw on the website that it is recommended to have a server 64-bit/x86 Processor. 2.2 GHz processor, mulit-processor system recommended. 4 GB RAM. 45 MB of disk space for the Synchronizer Software. 200 GB of disk space recommended for data storage during system operation. Does anyone know how many users those requirements are based off of? We are looking to implement this and what to know what size server to buy.

Thanks

    One thing I've done which helps save a tad bit of space is to change
    the compression used when rotating the Mobility logs from gzip to bzip.
    Bzip has a little tighter compression. Also, you may not necessarily
    need to have a single 300GB drive as you could always mount a separate
    drive under /var/log/datasync just for the logs. This is especially
    easy to do if you're virtualizing Mobility.

    Thanks for all the tips. It will help a lot.
  • I have a 100 gig for var and we are only using 52 GB. When i had to do some debug logging, I used temp space on a nas using a nfs mount. when i was done i just removed the mount and went on like normal.
