SAP ESS Hardware sizing suggestions required


Our client is planning for SAP ESS implementation so they are asking for approximate hardware requirement for below load

Users : 3000

Client is currently using 30 Forms (Hardcopy like Reimbursement form,Travel Form,Leave request form etc)

3000 Users access will access 5 Forms on an average daily on ESS so total T-Code executed for 1 day for 3000 Employees for 5 Forms =15000

Total T-code for 30 days for 3000 Employees : 15000*30 = 450000

Availiblity : Over internet and Intranet both.

Can you give me approximate hardware required for this load

Which scenario we should go for

1 : Since we have E.P 7.0 installed on the SAP BW System


SAP Netweaver 7.0

BI Java

Enterprise Portal

Business Intelligence

So can we use this EP for implementing SAP ESS and then connect to SAP ERP

2 : We have ERP 6.0 ABAP Stack only : So can we install NW java with ESS

3 : Or Install Standalone NW Java with ESS
