Since your post is very terse to the absurd, is the spelling error (DNS vs NDS) in the title or in the question?

If your question is about DNS, are you really asking what hardware you need for a DNS server serving an office with 4 servers? Can you explain what is so special about your requirement instead of having the forum guessing at it?

jlinkels: he may MEAN NDS, as there are some software packages of that name or associated with companies that use those letters in that order. You are certainly correct about one thing, the real situation is unclear.

cellranking: you need to make the situation clear. If you mean DNS services, we can discuss various DNS servers (bind, DNSMASQ, etc) and their hardware requirments. If you mean NDS, you need to gis us a little detail about which one, what version, etc.

You might also want to take a read at the documentation on this site pertaining to asking intelligent questions. It is useful information, and no only for use with this site.

If your total "estate" is 4 servers (you don't mention anything about workstations for the "50 users") then unless you are hosting your own zone file for some reason you don't NEED a DNS server, just pass all the queries to your ISP DNS servers, Google, or Quad9.

That may be true, if there are no workstations involved. Your suggestion, however, does not answer the question: instead it avoids the question.

Not saying that has no value. I will be interested in seeing the OP respond.

That's not a terribly large network. I would suggest that even an old workstation you have laying around could handle that load. At least given the sparse information you provided. Years ago I setup a DNS for my employer that was based on a Pentium Pro to handle the company's network used by hundreds of users; you don't need a high-end CPU to run bind or the like. Of course, YMMV. Today's 'net usage is a bit different than it was back then.

Answers the question very well, "recomnendations for hardware?" my recommendation - NO hardware.

If you're going to be pedantic about answers then....

For that number of servers and you wand dedicated hardware, us a Raspberry Pi, that will have the compute power you need at low cost.

Happy now wpeckham?
