    Database / web server configuration and minimum hardware specification

    Hi I'm very new to the forums, my name is Rich and I'm looking to replace a proprietary CMS with Umbraco. The intention is to use the most current stable version (7.1.3) but I have some questions about the Database / web server configuration and minimum hardware specification. I have searched the forums and documentation but can't find anything on this.

    Yesterday I completed my level 1 developer’s course with Doug and now looking to do a technical debriefing to my colleagues.

    If I start with the hardware specifications for the web server. I appreciate this is subjective as it’s down to the number of visits / whether the site is static and what other requirements I have in the future.

    We currently get 1.5million page views a year. The data will mainly remain static and we have about 20 contributors (looking to slim this down). What kind of minimum hardware specs (memory / cpu’s) am I looking at on a Server 2008 installation?

    Secondly the SQL server configuration. The plan is to use Umbraco on a web server in the DMZ connecting to a SQL server in the LAN. What port configuration is required? Is this the recommended set-up? Is there any official documentation for this?

    Any help would be much appreciated.
