Small dataset hardware recommendations for Project Server 2013

Project Server 2013

Published: July 16, 2012

Summary  Here are the hardware recommendations for a small deployment of Project Server 2013.

Applies to:  Project Server 2013 

Minimum requirements for hardware for Project Server 2013

A single server that acts in all three roles: Application Server, Web Front End, and Database (SQL) Server. This server contains the SharePoint Content database and the four Project Server databases.

Minimum requirements for hardware components for Project Server 2013

Component Minimum requirement

Processor

64-bit, four-core, 2.5 GHz minimum per core

RAM

8 GB for developer or evaluation use

16 GB for single-server and multiple-server farm installation for production use

Hard disk

80 GB for installation

For production use, you need additional free disk space for day-to-day operations. Add twice as much free space as you have RAM for production environments.

Recommendations based on coexistence with SharePoint Server 2013

Because Project Server 2013 coexists with SharePoint Server 2013, it generates additional resource usage (processor, RAM, and hard disk). The guideline requirements for SharePoint Server 2013 are also valid for a Project Server 2013 installation with a small data set and light usage. However, for more substantial data sets and usage patterns, additional hardware resources will be required. For a single-box deployment, with a small data set, we advise 16 GB of RAM to assure a high level of perceived performance. Beyond this, if possible, we recommend that you separate your SQL Server from the Application and front-end Web tiers by placing your databases onto a dedicated computer that is running SQL Server.

Web Front End and Application Server recommendations for Project Server 2013

Component Minimum requirement

Processor

64-bit, four-core, 2.5 GHz minimum per core

RAM

8 GB for developer or evaluation use

16 GB for single-server and multiple-server farm installation for production use

Hard disk

80 GB

SQL Server database recommendations for Project Server 2013

Component Minimum requirement

Processor

64-bit, four-core, 2.5 GHz minimum per core(if your dataset size is considerably larger than the medium dataset, 8 cores are recommended)

RAM

16 GB

8 GB for single-server and multiple-server farm installation for production use

Hard disk

80 GB
