Sharepoint enterprise server 2010 VMWare requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am setting up an intranet with sharepoint 2010 for about 300 employees. The environment will be used for intranet pages, team sites, content repository, and FAST Search server.The web/App servers will be installed on a VM 2008R2 instance in an ESX environment and the SQL database will be in a cluster.

    My question: The minimum requirements for a physical install is 4 proc Cores and 16GB RAM for the web/app server. Would it be enough to dedicate 1 physical core to the VM environment on the ESX and give sharepoint 4 or 8 virtual cores?

  • For that number of end users, that should be sufficient for the core.
