Dear All,
Need your help.
Please let me know what should be the hardware specification for setting up production environment on sql server 2012.
It is for a banking domain,so the frequency of trnasaction will be very high.
I will be going for Enterprise Edition,will it be ok?
1.Total hardisk space(SAN or RAID which would be better).
2.RAM required
3.Processor.
4.what should be the initial size for primary and secondary files?

Thanks in advance.

It just isn't somethng that you can really acurately determine in a forum. There are so many variables, Database sizes, transactions/sec, expected growth, number of users. It is also very workload dependent, what apps are running, are they in house or 3rd party (If it is 3rd party, they probably have min/recommended server specs)?

The easy answer is get as big a system as you can, but no answer any of us gives you will necessarily be right, it could fall down under load, or it could be complete overkill.

As a starting point , have you created a profile of the requirements , such as IOPs\read write per sec? Throughput rates? Disk Response Rates? Once you have those in place - it is easier to agree on hardware
