Azure Configuration for SL

Posted on by 1,355

We are considering deploying an SL2018 instance over Azure.  I usually have someone else do this, but timing is an issue.  I am looking for some guidance in Azure speak with regards to the necessary components for the following:

1)  SL Application server for 4 to 5 users (one or two depending upon use of Management Reporter)

2)  75 to 100 GB of data (application and system DB's)

3)  SQL Server 2019

Given Azure's Flexible configuration options, just want to make sure we are plugging in the right options into their calculator.  Please advise.

    Dear JG,

    Here is a comment from an environment team member

    kind of hard to say if they need more disk space since we don't know what modules they have and how much data they are entering into SL.

    75 to 100 GB is a pretty decent sized SL app database. However, being that this is Azure it is not the difficult for them to scale the disk space upward if they find that they need more. Memory would be the main thing if they are running MR. The minimum recommended on the SQL server where the MR databases reside is 32GB. So,  if the SL database are there also they should look to start with a min of 64GB on the database server to account for MR, SL and the operating system.

    Best Regards,

    Hello JG,

    I'm asking an environment team member, but I'm thinking more space?

    Lets see what he says.
