New SharePoint 2013 Minimum Requirements on Technet


Microsoft has recently updated the minimum requirements for SharePoint 2013 on Technet. Here is the official  change log.

Made the following changes: – Updated table in “Hardware requirements—web servers, application servers, and single server installations” with new requirements based on performance and capacity testing and recommendations. – Added definitions for small (fewer than 1,000 users), medium (between 1,000 and 10,000 users), and large (more than 10,000 users) deployments. – Clarified the support statement for optional software.

There are no big changes, however I thought it’s interesting for you to know! Luckily, I had some screenshots from before to change, so I will make it Short & Sweet and show them:

For the SharePoint part, Microsoft added a new “category” of Server,  which the classic development server: Single Server with built-in Database and Visual Studio 2012.   For the rest,  it seems unchanged.

As for the Database Servers, the requirements didn’t change, however Microsoft added details on what is a small deployment (less than 1000 users) and what is a medium deployment (1000 to 10000 users).
