  • All,

    I am planning to setup a mid size farm with the following servers and service:

    • 2 WFE server with
      - OWA
    • 2 Apps Servers with the following redudant apps
      - Excel
      - Forms
      - Visio
      - PowerPoint
    • 1 SP Reporting Server
      - Performance Point
    • MS Project Server

    Here's my quetions:

    1. Are the services under the servers mentioned about make sense?
    2. Should i have the services (excel, forms...) for the Apps server be redundant or just use one server instead?
    3. Should the Performance Point service be with the SP Reporting Server?
    4. Any recommendations?

    Thanks in adnance
