I'm about to deploy a medium SharePoint 2013 farm. I have five servers in total, I'll use 2 of them for the database (high-availability).
I have to plan the distribution of SharePoint role/services on the 3 other servers. Those servers are identical from an hardware point of view and all with 24GB of RAM.
The idea is to run all services in the 3 servers, including the Search, and making all 3 front-end servers as well. The reasons for choosing this configuration would be that:
- >10000 users accessing the farm
- To guarantee high availability of the services
- I won't have much resources running on the farm
I don't know exactly which problems that can arise from this configuration... bad performances, the config is not mentioned on the official diagrams, I know some of the services (e.g. DistrCache and Search Components) aren't compatible, the fact that everything will be more "exposed" due to the fact that each server will be a front-end server as well.
What do you suggest? Thank you!!!! :)
