processor or memory calculation for a sqlserver instance in a vm RRS feed

  • Question

  • Best planning for a sqlserver 2012 SE that will be installed on windows 2012 DE in a VM in hypervserver. There will be atleast 2 heavy transactional databases with growth around 15GB per month in this instance. There will also be transactional replication.  There will be tx log backups running like once every 5 mins on all databases. This instance will be in a A-P clustering.

    What is the best way to measure how much memory is required, how many processors are required on this VM which will be the database server?

    Thanks for the inputs
