SQL Server Configuration

I am planning to Install SQL Server 2005 for production database. My database should have more than 1 TB data and more than 100 online users. What should be the SERVER configuration I have to choose for the smooth functioning of SQL Server Database. Thanks in Advance. Biju Oracle DBA

If you plan to have a database of that size, you should get some consultant with proven experience in SQL Server VLDB. In this region hardware matters as much as db design and the calling app. All must perfectly fit together. As this is very specific to your environment, there is not much that can seriously be suggested from an online community. Check out the site here and probably
and talk about your findings to the consultant. —
