    Hi Prasanna,

    It depends upon the type of load you expect on the system. If you wish to combine the two products on one server and require significant usage out of both, you would need a high CPU and memory server.

    You would probably save money by getting two smaller servers than one massive server.

    Carry out some performance testing and see whether you are pushing the server to the limits (Chances are that you would be).

    If you are unsure about usage, you may be able to setup two virtual servers instead. If the servers are unable to handle the load, you would be able to move the virtual servers to two separate boxes. It also provides avenues for High Availability.

    As for development environement, I would not see any issues, if you are expecting to be the only person hitting xMII / XI. (Please note that this is my personal opinion and not an official recommendation).

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Jai.

    Prasanna,

    Remember that it is recommended by SAP to have a local xMII instance at each plant location whereas with XI you would only have a single corporate instance. While there are no technical limitations to doing this there are physical hardware capacity limitations that can arise.
