Hardware Requirements for Web and Database Servers

There is no official minimum for the hardware requirements that are needed to host the Sana Commerce webstore. The hardware specifications will change under the influence of different factors that should be taken into account. To make the best estimation of the hardware specifications for the Web and database server where Sana Commerce will be hosted the following questions should be answered:

  • High-traffic or low-traffic webstore
  • Number of visitors per day/month
  • Maximum number of simultaneous visitors
  • Maximum number of order lines in the shopping cart
  • Number of simultaneous orders
  • Size and complexity of the products catalog (number of products, product categories, attributes)
  • Number of articles in the webstore
  • Number of search queries
  • Size of the database

These are only those questions that should be considered first of all to make a more precise estimation regarding the hardware requirements that are needed for hosting and management of the Sana Commerce webstore. However, you should also take into account the software that is listed in the software requirements and should be installed on the server. This leads to the extra hardware requirements that should be also taken into account.

The higher webstore requirements, the higher hardware specifications of the Web and database servers are. To begin with you can think of the environment with the following specifications that are for the Sana Commerce solution only. The minimum Web server requirements are for a single installation of a low-traffic webstore, with a small products catalog and not a big amount of visitors. To run multiple environments (test and production) and customized solutions you should use the recommended or higher hardware requirements.
