    Server requirements per user

    Hey,

    I'm embarking on a project to develop both a server application and a client application. The client will be written for the Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android and web platforms, while the server will be running either some variant of Unix or Linux (perhaps Ubuntu).

    What I'm looking to determine is what my server hardware requirements will be, particularly per user.

    Any guidance on this would be appreciated!

    That really depends on the application.
    An email server needs a lot less power (per user) than a media server.

    Though if your users behave as you do, and generate multiple pointless requests, you're going to need to spec-up.

    Both now closed.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    As Salem said, it's very dependent on this application.

    However... The fact that you even ask this question suggests to me that you are wanting to squeeze in heavy features that aren't essential to the project, but are greatly preferred.
    I would give the user the choice to configure these on/off. Let them decide if speed or features are more important.
