I was looking to get some input on a hardware recommendation for a client. The site will be for about 800-850 users, with an unknown amount of devices being used by each. Some could use up to 3 devices or more with a computer, phone, xbox, etc, while others could use none.
Currently we were looking into getting an R510 with 2 x X5630 processors, Quad ET Intel network card (to support the 5 vlans), and 12GB ram. They will most likely be running the lite version with Anti-virus, Spy-ware, Spam enabled, as well as the paid bandwidth control application.
Does anyone have any experience with a larger network and the type of equipment needed on-site as the customer is only wanting to put a single processor E3-1230 R200 server on-site to handle this. I am just unsure if it would have the processing power, so any thoughts or experience would be helpful.
Edit: Some more information. The site is currently using a 100MB Full duplex Fiber connection.
