    How many sites? Any applications you don't mention that interact with AD - since you only mention AD and core services, presumably you're only looking at domain controllers here?

      Use the Active Directory Sizer tool. You can enter you're parameters into it and it will give you the corresponding hardware requirements.

        Yes we don't require any site .....

        Only domain controller which could handle 3000 + AD user Authentication & DNS

          Only one DC? What if that thing fails?

            For 3000 users, I'd definately want a generous handful (I'd love to work in a company big enough to be able to count servers in 'handfuls' )

              We have approximately 200 users here and currently have around 25 servers with 4 dc's in our main site and at least 2 on each other one.
