The information on server sizing in this blog post is no longer up to date. This was very early guidance before we had done many measurements. See http://blogs.msdn.com/bharry/archive/2006/01/04/509314.aspx and later posts on my blog for more up to date information on our recommendations.
I know John has been doing this for a while on his blog (http://blogs.msdn.com/johnlawr) but things have been so busy lately that he hasn’t had time to post the latest numbers so I thought I’d save him the time and do it.
Well, I’m back. Yes, I feel terrible that it’s been what 18 months since I last posted here. All I can say is that I’m going to try to do better. Somehow in the daily crush of emergencies I just never seem to find the time to sit down and write something for my blog.
