This does not mention CPU, RAM and disk requirment. We need to suggest hardware specs to a client.

The sizing (hardware specification and number of servers) of data insight is very depends on:
Numbers of shares, filers, files, numbers of access events and so on.
If you provide this info I will try to help.

Thanks Alexander,

At this stage I am not sure about exact number of file shares and all that. I just want to have some general hardware guidelines.
