[Spce-user] Server requirements

Got it, so say for 500 calls how much ram would you allocate? The discs I/O on the server would look for RAID 10 and not to overburden the Vmware server with heavy load for other services, maybe dedicate network for SIPwise. Does it make sense to scale with additional virtual servers of just more "ram/HD" on one? Is it common to have them virtualized or the preference is not to?
Thanks for the reply

Hi Santiago

It depends on the load you will have on the system. Are we talking about 50 concurrent calls or 500?

Id's say as long as your HD IO is good enough you won't have problems running it virtualized. Although if you hit high load I would use dedicated hardware and take care about IO.

In my experience RAM is the most important thing to have in the SPCE. Then, HDD IO (raid 10 is a good idea IMHO). CPU is not that important or intensive. If running in virtual environments take care if HDD speed and network card interruptions.
