  • All specs are mentioned in the documents Jeff posted. This is the minimum as you already mentioned that is able to handle the load. More is better and it's up to you to decide what to buy - as long as the minimum is met.
    One DP can handle up to 4.000 clients, depending on many factors. You mentioned 30 countries. That's not 30 locations right? There are most likely even more. Detailed planning cannot be done without knowing all details (like WAN layout, bandwidth, latency, usage, business requirements, budget, # of locations, users per location etc).

  • You can read my blog article concerning the recommandations but as Torsten says, you will need to give more details.
