Just a quick one I need to go out and buy two new servers to house
Office 2010 + all our other apps.


We currently get to approx. 20 users per box as we only run 2003 with
XenApp 5.


I do plan to move to 2008 R2 XenApp6 sometime next year.


Currently I have a mix of HP DL 360 servers.  Which are quad core x 2


I have two DL 360 G6 servers which I feel are over specked with 4 quad
core processors and 16 Gb ram, again only running 2003 so only using


There barely run past 2-3 % under full load.


My question really is:


As I always run out of memory before anything else is there any point
paying for 4 x quad core processors or should 2 be fine.


Keeping in mind that I will try and go 2008 R2 and XenApp 6 next year if
all goes to plan.


I know this is kind of how long is a piece of string question.


But any feedback would be appreciated.
