Setting my development and production environment for SharePoint 2013 server RRS feed

  • Question

  • I need to set up the development environment and the production environment for SharePoint 2013. I have read the following link on MSDN http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx which mentioned the environment specification for SharePoint 2013 , baring in mind that i am going to install the database and the SP server on the same machine , so i should use the following :-

     - 8 to 16 GB or RAM.
     - 4 processor cores
     - 64-bit edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1) Standard
     - 64-bit edition of Microsoft SQL Server 2012
     - 80 GB for system drive
     - Visual Studio 2012 Professional

    And our size for the application is as follow:-

    • We have two software developers that will be working on developing SharePoint on the development environment.

    • For the production environment we have around 60 internal users & 100 external users.

    So i have the following three questions:-

    1. Does the link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc262485.aspx talk about the production environment specification OR the development environment specification?

    2. So should i apply the above system specification twice one for the production and the other for the development environment ?

    3. or the production environment should have better specification  (than the ones mentioned above( compared to the development environment.?.

    Best Regards
