SPS – HP Tool for Capacity Planning

Are caught by your “Sales Guys” for SPS architecture & configuration to be explained in a better way.

In addition to an excellent article which provides guidelines for capacity planning there is this really nice SharePoint Portal Server 2003 Sizing and Configuration Tool V2.0 released by HP which goes a step furthur and says what HP systems you would need (this tool configures BladeSystem or Proliant DL Series) and the exact configuration.

Download the tool and see how you can play with some options. In short the tool is a .Net application which takes into account the guidelines suggested by Microsoft and translates them into a report (which you can print) that you can pass off to the hardware staff.
