Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Very important! We just published a white paper that thoroughly explains capacity planning in SharePoint.

A preview of the Executive Summary:

Since some core elements of SharePoint can be difficult to reconfigure once a SharePoint
implementation is live, it is really important to plan ahead. Whether a company or organization is looking to implement SharePoint as a departmental solution or as an enterprise solution, planning the SharePoint technical infrastructure is essential to making the project a success.

It may be tempting to just have a member of the IT staff set up a server, install MOSS 2007 and go from there. While this approach may work for a demonstration environment to show others how MOSS 2007 works, it is not advisable to use this method (or the demonstration environment) for a productionSharePoint environment.

This paper addresses key elements of infrastructure and capacity planning when setting up a SharePoint environment. Since each SharePoint implementation tends to be unique, this paper will not go into details regarding server‐specific specifications, etc. It will, however, describe the following:

- Each server’s purpose in the farm
- Farm implementation types
- Farm architecture alternatives
- Capacity planning
