Dear Someswara,

For your environment I would pick the ''Mid-scale'' range which requires the following:

  • For a medium level machine, consider using a medium server CPU (e.g. quad core) and high speed hard disks (e.g. 7200RPM+) for the home directory and backups.
  • > 8GB System Memory
  • > 2GB JVM Heap Size
  • ~200MB App Install Dir
  • > 200MB for Backups
  • 50-100GB for Attachments
  • 50MB for Application logs
  • 50 - 100 GB Total disk space.

For more information check;


Friendly Regards,

Jeremy Mooiman
