  • Yes, it's a good environment for demos, but not generally recommended for production because of potential performance issues - of course one persons definition of not fast enough is different to another.

  • hi Mac,

    yes its certainly possible, like Ben has mentioned, we prepare such environment all the time for POC or demo or development purposes. 

    you can go through this article to find out about hardware requirement in case of such deployment: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee683978.aspx

    although its says 24GB RAM for such environment, however, based on my personal experience, i have single server environment works fine using 8GB of RAM and 4 cores processor.

    hope this helps.

  • According to this article (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee683978.aspx) all size of requirement need to have separate at least 2 server,

    1 application and front-end 

    2. SQL server

    unfortunately our SharePoint server already contained SQL 2013 and SharePoint 2013 together, and we'd like to set up the project server 2013 with medium dataset on this environment for production.

    Except the performance issue, what should we concern ?  

    Thank you in advance

  • Ditto on answers above.  It works for the most part.  You may not be able to have all the reporting features, because you then need to install SSAS and there goes some more memory, and SharePoint may need to be scaled down.  However for demo or testing, it should give most of what you need.

    However, I would suggest, setting up 2 hyper-V guests on the server and make it two tier.  If the demand grows, it will be easier to more VMs to other servers.

    Cheers!

  • Hi,

    First, if you go through that techNet document closely again, there are two small data-set scenarios mentioned. the first one is the single server deployment with all three tiers on the same server. and that is the one i have mentioned, for which the recommended hardware is to have 24GB of RAM.

    But please note that this type of deployment is generally for demo/development purposes only, and not for production.

    And answer to your latest query is, that you need to deal with performance issues mostly.

    hope this helps.
