Continuing our journey to SharePoint 2016, after Planning and architecting Distributed cache Service for SharePoint 2016, I would like to stress in this article mostly on memory requirements for SharePoint 2016.

Here are my key takeaways about requirements for SharePoint 2016:

  1. There is no change regarding processor needs on every config it’s 4 cores, 64 bits processor.
  2. There is a significant change regarding memory needs from 12 GB (for SharePoint 2013) to 16 GB for a standard SharePoint 2016 production server
  3. There is no change regarding disk space requirements
  4. There is no change regarding requirements for a stretched farm (latency  should be < 1 ms 99.9% of the time and bandwidth at least 1 Gbit/s)
  5. There is a standard evolution regarding Windows and SQL Server supported versions

All these information come from the well known pages: Hardware and software requirements for SharePoint Server 2016
