specing out how much resources are need for a project.

specing out how much resources are need for a project.

I need help specing out the resources i need for this project.

here is what i have:

I am looking at a project that will have around 1000 people using a vb.net application to send insert row commands to a SQL Server 2005.  The row they insert has around 2500 charaters in it.  on average everyone will submit 1 row a day.  Everyone is on the same network but they are spread throughout the US.

Does anyone know what kind of server resources will i need for this(memory, processing power, bandwidth)?

RE: specing out how much resources are need for a project.

This isn't a whole lot of information to go on.

All they are going to do is insert a single record per day.  No one will be looking at the records?  Nothing will be searching the records.

What's the table structor look like?  Will there be only a single table?  What's the purpose of the application?  How long do you have to keep the data for?  What's the assumed growth rate?

What's your backup strategy?
Are you doing auditing?
How will trap/handle errors?

1000 people adding 1 record a day , is not a big system. Worth looking at how the vb apps handle the connections , i.e close them etc
