This describes the server requirements for both a physical deaddrop server and a virtual server. This document explains the recommendations for a server purchase or the specifications that a virtual server needs.
The basis for the hardware and virtual hardware recommendation is a 200 user license with normal day-to-day usage of the service. With normal day-to-day usage we mean 20-30% of the licensed user use it daily for single file operations of small-to-medium size files (1-100Mb files). Depending on the usage and the number of simultaneous deaddrop users the requirements may be different.
The table bellow will show the requirement for a physical server running deaddrop
