    Default new deployment hardware

    Yo Zimbra team/admins/users/etc !

    Recently i tried a zimbra open source edition on a tiny/old desktop computer (p4 2.4ghz 512MB). For sure, it was pretty slow and server startup took about 10minutes. Buti i was impressed how it looks and feels! At the moment i misses only one thing, ability to create domain admin with multiple domains
    So, now i decided to migrate our old mail server to the zimbra.
    I have something about 2000 user accounts and about 50 lists. Also i want to run mail store over iscsi from nearby zfs san.
    What kinda of hardware i need for such amount of users?

    Thanks.
    Edgars

    Did you consider looking at the System Requirements in the Product Documentation first (it's detailed in there)? Did you also try searching the forums for details on what the hardware requirements are for specific workloads/user (there are threads that cover this)?

    Hello,

    Yes, i already dig the forum and read a wiki. On forum i found (mainly) only for users with some hundreds of active users. Thats not a same as 2k-3k users
    In wiki it's more or less superficial data. Also i would like to know how changes servers performance/resource usage when almost all disk i/o is offloaded to another storage backend. And that really is not in wiki
    Options - get more cpu power and ram is not a sollution, they are like a "gimmee a zimbra network edition for free"

    There are threads in these forums for hardware specs for 50k users. None these threads gave you any useful information: site:zimbra.com +"hardware requirements" - Yahoo! Search Results

    Thanks for reply.
    "hardware requirments" was a first string which i searched but 50k users was a right hint, thanks again.

    And what do you mean with free network edition? Trial version?

    Thanks

    I meant a free Network Edition (Virtual Appliance), it's a 10 user licence and obviously not suitable for your scenario but it is free.
