The Deployment sizing approach

In the previous section, we learned about the Liferay Portal reference architecture. The reference architecture is generic in nature. It can be used as a reference to define an architecture that is more specific to a project. One of the important activities in defining a specific architecture is sizing. We need to be sure of the number of Liferay Portal application servers or web servers to meet performance expectations. In the beginning of the project when the system is yet to be developed, it is impossible to size the architecture with 100 percent accuracy.
