Storage space.RAM, and bandwidth
Hi,

I am trying to understand the resources needed to have 100,000 users. My questions are:

1) How much hard drive space is required? If each gets a 6 MB mailbox, then I guess it will 600,000 MB or 600 GB in storage! This seems quite extreme. Are my numbers correct?

2) How much bandwidth is expected monthly according to your experience?

3) How much RAM is needed?

4) Any hosting provider you know of that can give such resources for an acceptable price?

5) Do the hard drives need to be SCSI?

6) Any special network setup? RAIDs, Clustering,....

7) Do you have any users that are using this program for a very large user base?

I do appreciate the time anyone takes to answer this query

Frank
