  • Hi Carlos,

    >>What would be the Hardware requrirement for a server which can authenticate a company of 500 devices and a company of 250 devices?

    I think you really don't need to worry about the device authentication, because these device doesn't requests the authentication at the same time and the basic hardware could deals these basic requests from these devices.

    If these hardware couldn't meet the requirements of these device, you could upgrade these firmware and hardware.

    For server 2008r2 system requirements:

    Processor performance depends not only on the clock frequency of the processor, but also on the number of processor cores and the size of the processor cache.

    RAM

    Minimum :512mb

    Maximum:32 GB (for Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard) or 2 TB (for Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise, Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter, and Windows Server 2008 R2 for Itanium-Based Systems).

    Disk:

    Minimum:32GB
