SP 2016 farm arhitecture RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have old SP 2010 farm with 4 servers: 2 wfe, 1 database, 1 application. This SP has 15000 unique visitors per day (readers) and 500 content editors.

    Now, I need to migrate that to SP2016. Do I need the same server arhitecture (4 servers) and what are min requirements for these servers?

    Where could I get the answer to these questions?

  • I would stand this up and adjust specifications accordingly:

    2 DC+FE

    2 App+Search

    2 SQL in AOAG (SQL Enterprise)

    2 Office Online Server

    We cannot define absolute minimum requirements for your particular implementation. It is based on concurrent user count, stored data, access patterns, etc. There is no magic number we can give you. I'd probably start out at 16GB RAM + 4 vCPU per SharePoint server, 24GB RAM + 4 to 8 vCPU per SQL Server and go from there.
