Thanks Tony
It is the minimum requirement ,i want production based requirement.
And one more question that one can use IBM Http Server which comes with WAS as a web server in production Becuase earlier i had seen somewhere that it is not for production use (IHS).
And which one is best iSeries ,zSeries and which is the best series among this or anyother.
Thanks again.

Your first question (which is best, zSeries, iSeries, pSeries) is unanswerable. Each customer has different requirements. If you're a big mainframe customer, then obviously zSeries would be right for you. If you're a huge Unix shop, then pSeries might be better. WebSphere runs to the upper limit of the capacity of each machine type. But different customers like different OS's for different reasons, which is why IBM sells all of the different kinds of hardware.
As to your second question, IHS is perfectly suited for production applications. I'm not sure where you saw that it wasn't but that's certainly not true.

Hi Kyle,
Thanks
I am looking out for an ASP setup on win2k.My application is a distributed J2EE application which will be having firewall in the front(checkpoint)
And my HTTP Server and Application server will be on Different machines . so Could you please suggest me abt the Hardware requirement of HTTP Server as well as WAS SErver.
My application will be having arnd 500 users (Not Concurrent).And 15 concurrent users at at time.
Waiting for your reply.
Thanks

15 concurrent users at a time will run comfortably on a desktop-class machine (let's say a Pentium IV 1.4 GHz with 1 G RAM). You could run both the IHS server and WebSphere on the same machine and not have it break a sweat.
If you REALLY wanted to be paranoid, consider using a 2 processor machine with at least 512 MB per processor.
The only thing I'd be careful of is to make sure that you're not running your database on the same machine.
So my advice is TRY IT. Set up a test. Get a load tool and run 1, then 5, then 15 then 25, and then 50 concurrent users and see what the performance curve of your application looks like.
