Sizing for SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise 4.0

Hi Expert

I would know if someone have experience relating the sizing of SAP BusinessObjects Enterprise 4.0 on windows platform

By reading the document on :

at pag. 18 I can see that :

Minimum Server Hardware Requirements (Updated)

4 x 2.0 GHz Core CPU

8 GB RAM minimum / recommended 16GB*

* Sizing Companion for SAP BusinessObjects BI 4.0 states: u201CIn terms of typical hardware in an enterprise scale deployment of BI 4.0, a node in a BI 4.0 cluster would typically be an 8 core machine with 16GB minimum or equivalent.u201D

I think that this configuration is related to a "Central configuration" where DB server, Web Application Server and CMS Server are installed in a unique Host.

Instead I'm going to use a "Distribute configuration" and I would use the following configuration:

server1: Data Base

server2: Web Application Server

server3: CMS Server

server4: CMS Server

I would know (based on your experience) if the following configuration could be fine for a production environment:

server1= 4 x 2.0 GHz Core CPU , 4 GB RAM

server2= 3 x 2.0 GHz Core CPU , 4 GB RAM

server3= 3 x 2.0 GHz Core CPU , 4 GB RAM

server4= 3 x 2.0 GHz Core CPU , 4 GB RAM

Thank you in advance for collaborations
