Inforouter - Storage Requirements

[Inforouter] An example of an Inforouter Storage Scenario;

A Customer wishes to store 100,000 documents with each page being a full page of text. On average each document is 200kb, and 25% of these documents will have a second version.

100,000 x 200kb = 20 Gb - Primary Warehouse Storage
25% x 100,000, x 200kb = 5Gb - additional storage for document versions

Total Warehouse Size = 25Gb

As these documents are catalogued with MS Index Server to provide full text search, an allowance of 150% of the original warehouse size needs to be made for the MS Index Server Catalog;

25Gb x 1.5 = 37.5Gb

Finally there is the Inforouter database, which in this example can be approximated to 300mb

Therefore the total requirement is

25 + 37.5 + 0.3 = 62.8Gb
