SBS hardware requirements RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need some help finding hardware server requirements to host the SBS. I found one link on msdn but it doesnt call out branch server and only core server roles:

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg398835(v=ocs.15).aspx#Recommended Hardware Platform

    We have a Cisco ISR router which can take a UCS-E server which has a hex-core with 1.9Ghz. Will that suffice?

    Thanks!

  • @KamranKhan1, correctly, the hardware requirements for Survivable Branch Servers are the same as the requirements for a Front End Server, the link in your question.
    Also, please note that 2.26 gigahertz (GHz) or higher is recommend.

    Meanwhile, refer to below table to determine the best option when deploy branch-site resiliency:

  • The SBS server can support up to 5000 users, you should use at least 16 GB ram, the hex-core should also be ok.

    I could also not find technet doku for SBS hardware requirements.
