The Complete Installation of Project Server 2013 – Prerequisites
Like any other server, a project server also has a hardware and the software requirements.
The first thing to consider before planning the hardware requirements for project server 2013 is its usage requirements. Usage requirements include variables like a number of projects, tasks, users, average tasks per project, etc.
By examining the effects of data sets on the working capacity of project server 2013, comparison of numbers from your framework with corresponding small, medium or large datasets is possible.
Basically, the analysis of datasets and usage requirements is the starting point for selecting a suitable framework of hardware.
Hardware largely used for small datasets in project server 2013
Recommended hardware topology for a small datasets scenario is a single–server deployment that has the following three tiers:
- SQL Server
- Application server
- Front-end web server
Minimum requirements for the hardware are:
Additional free disk space is usually required during production use for day-to-day operations. For that approx. two times as much free space as you have RAM for production environments.
Hardware requirements for medium data sets under project server 2013
Recommended hardware topology for a medium datasets scenario is a single–server deployment that has the following three tiers:
- Server 1: Front-end web server
- Server 2: Application server
- Server 3: SQL Server
Hardware requirements in the case of front-end web server and application server is:
Hardware requirement for SQL server
Hardware requirements for large datasets in project server 2013
In the case of large data sets, an extensive amount of data is one of the biggest worries. The most common framework used under large datasets situation is 4x2x1.
While the hardware requirements for the front-end web server and the application server remain the same as in medium dataset situation, the major changes were made in the requirements for SQL Server.
Hardware requirements for SQL server:
