Hi,

As part of scea part-II assignment, we need to provide details of what will be the deployment view of the design software. Do we have to capture details like number of servers, memory requirements, CPU speed etc. If yes, what is the best way to come up with such data? thanks.

Number of servers - probably yes, you can point this info in your deployment diagram, but CPU and memory... it seems to me too much. Anyway you can point them in list of assumptions, if you have special requirements for performance etc.

I'm sure it's perfectly acceptable to provide generic server descriptions. However, if you want to go into more detail there's heaps of information available on Sun's range of servers. I actually did a fair bit of research and went as far as suggesting specific hardware. As I said, that might be above and beyond what was required, but it was an interesting exercise in itself, especially if you're coming from a purely developer-oriented background.

Providing detailed descriptions of your hardware can also be important if your using virtualisation to consolidate servers. For example, it might be acceptable to have a single piece of hardware if it has built in HA features such as dual power supplies which eliminate any one SPoF.
