Essential Business Server Standard Physical Server Requirements

Hi all,

Does EBS (Messaging, Managing, Gateway) Need to be run on three physical servers, or can it be run on one physical server?

Thanks
Sean

You can have it all on one , but it better be a very powerful server.

No need to run in a virtual environment.
Have a look at this System REquirement page (if you haven't yet so) and see what hardware you need.

Also a FAQ section that gives you a lot of usful info.

Remember EBS only comes in 64-bit so make sure your server hardware meets this requirement. Also make sure you have plenty disk space on the server. From reading I think it requires at least 100Gb just for the system components so I guess that is why EBS can be installed on different servers.
