Project Server 2010-TFS 2010 (integrated mode) deployment topology RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We are planning to implement project server 2010 integrated with TFS 2010 for 100 users and 30 projects.

    PFB, the specifications we are planning to implement.

    Project Server Web\App server:: RAM :8 GB, four-core, 2.5 GHz,80 GB
    Project Server DB Server: :RAM :16 GB64-bit, four-core, 2.5 GHz ,80 GB
    TFS Server:: RAM :4GB, 1 dual core at 2.13 GHz, 125 GB

    I would like to know whether the above one is fine to go ahead. Also would like to know  is there any way in which we can esnure that there is no performance hit in case of increase in number of users or projects?

  • Hi there,

    The first question I would ask is, are you using timesheets at all? If so, the specs above might struggle as the concurrent usage is usually higher when using timesheets, i.e all users logging on last thing on Friday afternoon to update and submit their timesheets.. With approx. 80 - 100 users updating and submitting timesheets, I would imagine  the system would be slow responding but if your processes would get users to update timesheets more frequently then it might be fine. Below is a link to the Estimating Performance and Capacity white paper for project server 2010, which will detail server specs based on usage:

  • Apart from Paul's valuable inputs, My 2 cents:

    1. Are you planning to have TFS databases on the same database server where you want to have project Server databases? If yes, in that case, 80 GB might not be good for 30 projects & 100 users, hoping that they will be using a Team Web access (TFS Site) & documents of projects too.
    2. Two server architecture can support 100 users but as Paul mentioned System could be slow in resonding the Timesheets page requests. again with TFS, It could be with sluggish performance.

  • We are planning to keep the TFS data base in the TFS server itslef (not in the above menitioned Database Server) and we will be using daily timesheets.
