I have been using Nav 3.60 with a native db for years. We are about to install a completely new Nav solution using Nav5 and SQL 2005. The supplier has quoted for new hardware, but I am unsure why the supplier is quoting for a separate server to run Nav5 on.
I've read in the forums about the SQL server specs and performance and understand those needs, but not why you'd put Nav5 on a separate server.
We are looking at installing a solution for 70 concurrent users of which 10 will be remote users (using Citrix) and BI toolset. The client PC's are all XP and Vista.
The supplier has quoted the server solution below. Can anyone help with my lack of understanding.
