5 GB is sufficient storage for even large Service Provider Foundation databases.

The following server scenarios each pertain to the recommendations listed in the following table.

4 processor cores, 8 GB RAM is sufficient for computers running App Controller with or without SQL Server.
16 processor cores, 8 GB RAM recommended only for computers running VMM with or without SQL Server.

By default, Service Provider Foundation supports up to 1000 concurrent requests for its web services. We recommend this be a lower number in a production environment. You can change this configuration by specifying the value for the MaxRequestsPerTimeSlot key in the C:\inetpub\SPF\web.config file.
