Server hardware scenarios for ArcGIS Server Enterprise/Standard,

We got one license for ArcGIS server (Enterprise/Standard). The ArcGIS Server is deployed on a server machine where enterprise data (Arcsde/SQL server) is shared by multiusers (editiors + viewers) and data (mxd, tbx, iamges, etc) is published. Web applications are built also to read their URLs from this server.

Facts:
??? The concurrent database editors might reach 17
??? The concurrent database viewers might reach 30
??? The concurrent data (mxd, tbx, images, etc.) publishers might reach 10
??? The concurrent users who might access the web applications might reach 500

Which scenario might be the best?

1. To purchase ONE high capacity server in terms of CPU (cores) and RAM to serve (17 editors, 30 viewers, 10 publishers, 500 viewers of the web application)

2. Or to purchase TWO regular servers (in terms of CPU and Ram capacity):

o one server for database: to serve 17 concurrent editors + 30 concurrent viewers+ 10 concurrent publishers
o and another one to accommodate the web applications (these applications are still taking their URLs from server one) that to be concurrently accessed by 500 users.

Thank you

Best

Jamal
