Implementing Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 on Dell 12th -Generation
Blade Servers and VMware vSphere 5.0

A reference architecture and performance study for a SharePoint Server 2010 farm up to 10,000 concurrent users

This white paper includes results of a comprehensive study and describes how a partially-virtualized
SharePoint farm, built using Dell PowerEdge™ blade servers, Dell Compellent™ Series 40 Storage Center
storage arrays with Fibre Channel controllers, and VMware vSphere 5.0 performed under load testing.
The key findings from this study are:

• The recommended farm architecture was able to support more than 100,000 users with 10
percent concurrency.

• The farm architecture used in this study had an average farm response time of 69ms or 0.069
seconds at the maximum supported, which was well below the one-second response time
target.

• The Dell Compellent storage backend was capable of supporting a 2TB SharePoint content
database with an average disk response time of 2ms and ~1454 average disk transfers per
second.
