Sizing infrastructure for SAP BPC 5.1
I realise hardware sizing is very customer specific but I'm hoping some people already using the SAP BPC or OutlookSoft product can provide me with some indication as to the environments they use to assist me with sizing a solution for our SAP BPC implementation.
We are going to have approximately 300 users with approximately 50 of them concurrently accessing the system. We are planning on using a single tiered environment to run this application with the following sort of specifications
2 x Quad Core 2.66 Ghz processors
100GB SAN disk (RAID 5)
SQL 2000 (unfortunately)
Any insight anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also interested in understanding how the load is distributed between the application and the database. My current assumption is that the load on the IIS server (and hence the application) will be quite light as the majority of the load is handled by the database especially when it comes to concurrent updates and to re-processing the cubes.
If anyone has any insights in to the validity of this assumption it would be greatly appreciated.
thanks in advance.
