Mac Mini running FM Server

Your post

     Hi Guys,

      Forgive me if this has been asked many times. I am a filemaker newbie and have spent hours reading these forums but don't have clear answers.

     1. I am considering setting up FM Server on a Mac Mini setup with mac osx server,  2.6GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i7, 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM, 256GB Solid State Drive (1) so I assume the other is the standard 1T drive, are these specs adequate? Do you have any other recommendations? There will be 2-3 remote access users and a local network of about 5 users on ipads.

     2. I assume that both windows and mac users will be able to access this database remotely?

     3. I am planning on setting it to do daily backups to a webhosted server solution, does this mean a second hard drive in the mac mini is not required?

     thanks in advance for your help guys
