I'm at the very beginning of what will hopefully be a successful deployment of some Zope3 apps. The big question I'm getting now from the infrastructure-minded people is what sort of hardware requirements I'll need (?) Given that I'm a bit of an Ubuntu nut, I wanted to look into a Sun server. I know that I won't need much in the way of storage, the minimum CPU and memory will do... after that I get a little lost :) If our final setup (a couple years down the line) will have something like 4-5 components all running on Zope3, must be highly available, and gracefully handle minor failures, what should I spec in terms of hardware?
Why don't you run some load tests to determine what a single server can handle with your application. Then ask the 'marketing/sales' guys for user projections (total users, simultaneous users). Then you will have a rough idea of what you need (rough being the operative word: you may need to look at load balancing, separate application and database servers, etc).
