A story.

Long ago we had 25+ users on a very old system with 64MB RAM in the late 90's with about a hundred users. It's a safe bet that such user counts are higher today.

I see support at is you need to find out more.

Phone Red Hat

If you have Red Hat Enterprise Linux, why don't you just call or e-mail their support line? If you want to know to inform your purchase decision, you could also give them a call and they'll be able to inform you.

Before calling, be aware that they'll ask you what these users will be doing. Are they terminal-only users, are they going to run a full graphical desktop, or are you only asking about file sharing? If they are going to run a full graphical desktop, what kinds of programs will they use? How big and beefy is your server?
