Based on the specifications, I would say you are building a small farm. So below is the configuration that can be suggested

Two WFE' - you can run the request management (this services is really not needed and even you can disable it - please plan to use a load balanced environment such as F5 if you can afford) , Central Admin, distributed cache, app frabic services and share point foundation web application service will be in these two servers.

Two App servers/batch servers:

One dedicated for all search related components One dedicated for BI specific requirements and others - PPS, user profile, visio, workflow,STS, Excel, BCS and so on.

One DB environment with fail-over configuration.

Overall, you can even consider just a single WFE since your page views is around 800. but it is advisable to have another just for a failover purpose and based on Severity.

  • Hi thanks, for central administration service and sharepoint foundatinweb application service should be allow in same server for performance ? and should i run distributed cache service also in WFE servers compulsory ?
