App Description: Stats:
I am working with a client who has an application distributed across 2 HTTP servers and 2 dB servers. To me this just seems excessive given what a single machine can to these days. Can I please get some feeback from you guys what you feel is an appropriate hardware config for the following? Am I crazy for thinking that (failover issues aside) the site and dB could probably run on a single box with a good processor and maybe 1 GB or RAM?
