Is there anyone out there that can help me with some hardware issues for a database server. We are running an NT environment with SQL server. Can someone give me some basic hardware requirements for a purely database server. What are the minimum specs I should be building from. Websites average 25,000 to 30,000 hits per day. I want a real database server that can handle increased loads.<BR><BR>What do I need? 2 CPU's or 5 CPU's?? 1 hard drive or 5 hard drives?? RAM ??? <BR><BR>Any Help would be appreciated.<BR><BR>Terry.
