[FX.php List] [OFF] Recommendations for Web Server specs?

Hi All

I’ve got a client whose IT dept is spinning up a new VM to serve as a vanilla Web Server for FM CWP.  There’ll be no FM components on this machine.

I’m not so good with hardware/OS… so I’m looking here for recommendations :)

There will be 5-10-ish CWP sites running on their server (each just in a sub-directory of wwwroot), with up to 400-ish users, although generally not all at the same time.

They've found that the following specs "seem to be consistent with both Filemaker and Microsoft.”:
Processors: 4 Core
HardDisk: 160GB

All of their other servers are still running Win Server 2008 R2, but this one may go up with Win Server 2012, and it seems we may be able to ask them for pretty high specs.

FWIW: This will be replacing an older Web Server that’s running: 
Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
2.10 GHz (2 processors)

Any words of advice?
