mdm hardware issues


i've got a few questions about the hardware requirements when setting up a mdm3.0-system...

am i right, that the mdm3.0 server landscape requires <b>at least 3 win2000-server patforms</b> (talking windows environment)?

1.XI-Host (XI + WAS),

2. MDM-Host (WAS + Solution Manager + Master Data Server + Content Integrator + UMEngine),

3.Web-Frontend-Host (WAS + EP + ITS)

furthermore but optional, 4. BW-Host (WAS + BW)

<b>which role plays the ITS</b> exactly in the landscape? it is mentioned in the master guide mdm 3.0... i thought the overall frontend for the mdm-solution is the EP?

can somebody suggest, which is the minimum requirement in terms of hardware (eg - if you want to set up a test scenario)?

is there a way you can put some of the above components on one machine - or is the scenario described above the basic setup?

btw, can somebody state exactly the hardware profiles of their machines running?

thanx a lot in advance for your comments

    Hi Matthias,

    For productive environments, the MDM 3.00 Master Guide recommends at least three hosts. However, for setting up a test landscape, there is no general objection against putting all on one (big) hardware instance (except for the BW you may use for analytical purposes).

    You are right that MDM runs on the Enterprise Portal, and most services run there directly based on People-Centric User Interface. ITS is required to enable WinGUI for HTML for a small number of transactions (e.g. specific monitoring or process chain maintenance functions) which are based in a backend system, so that they can also run on the portal.

    Kind regards,
