we serve our Geographic data via our flagship application Dorset Explorer. This uses OpenLayers and GeoServer to serve our Geographic data, including OSM and OS Basemaps and a mass of other data such as Aerial Photography, Schools etc.
My question is, what sort of Server Specs should we be using for GeoServer. We will only have available to us one server for delivery of tiles via WMS (and perhaps in the future we may be using some WFS on it as well). We get between 100 and 200 users per day, but this will hopefully start rising as soon as we are confident that the servers will hold up! Is it just a matter of stick in the highest specs we can afford or are there some limits or theoretical maximums.
Any pointers would be much appreciated!
