This topic provides database and resource recommendations to accommodate tenant usage of up to 25,000 virtual machines.
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.
Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) with or without SQL Server
Service Provider Foundation with or without SQL Server
App Controller with or without SQL Server
5,000 or Fewer Virtual Machines
5,000 – 12,000 Virtual Machines
12,000 – 25,000 Virtual Machines
4 processor cores, 8 GB RAM
8 processor cores, 8 GB RAM.
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.
