Server requirements for 100 users on 8i

What would be the server requirements for Oracle 8i database for 100 users? Also consider that there will be 1000 transactions a day from the Web. Thanks for your time.

It's always hard to answer these types of questions. But 100 concurrent users performing up to 1,000 daily transactions is not a lot. So you really don't need a very large database server. You can go with a low-end Unix server, a Linux server, or even a Windows server with this type of traffic. But be prepared to move your database to a bigger Unix box in the future if your usage requirements increase. No matter which server platform you do pick, try to get a box with more than one processor and multiple disk volumes. This way, you can spread the load out. This is important as your database usage begins to increase. You don't want to have to move to a different platform right away. Give yourself some capacity growth.
