I will be hosting a web application on my domain using a dedicated Windows 2008 server. It will use SQL Server 2008 as the database and I would prefer that on it's own server. So I want at least 2 dedicated servers - one for the app itself and the second for just the database.
The application will be a lot of reading/writing from the database. I was wondering if I have 10,000 users running the app daily, which machine needs to be fastest or should they both be equal? I hate to spend money where I don't have too. RAM suggestions are welcome as well.
Any insight is appreciated!
