Hardware requirements for LARGE catalogs
« on: April 15, 2010, 23:40:40 pm »

I have a prospect who has a large library (2.1 million titles, most on backorder). I'm guessing about 70-100 categories. He wants to implement an online catalog and shopping cart.

I normally use Magento for its features, but this many products would bring the server to its knees. So I am thinking of implementing it in VM.

I don't think that there will be that many sales (I'm guessing about 100/day).

What kind of hardware do you think I would need?

Thanks in advance.
