I'm trying to get my hands on some case studies or other peoples experience of the following.

I have an ASP.NET web application that provides web based learning content to users in the form of text, pictures and video. The application provides user account management, content editing via a wysywyg editor and user reporting. The application uses MS SQL on the backend to store data.

We're looking at about 1000 to 2000 visitors a day with the percentage of concurrant users being higher than an average site.

What kind if hardware should I be looking at in terms of CPU, RAM and how many servers. Would x2 web servers and x2 SQL servers load balanced manage this?

Hello ahevans,

By a sure "load" point of view, you should probably be ok with 1 web server and 1 db server (dual xeons with 2-4 GB RAM) should suffice.

However, from an availability standpoint, obviously load balancing web and even DB would certainly yield greater redundancy and availability.
