We are planning to install an upstream wsus server on a main site with about 1300 clients, and arround 30 downstream servers + 3200 clients on remote sites.
According to WSUS Capacity Requirements document (for Windows server 2008) we have the following hardware recommendations :
CPU : 1.5 GHz or faster
Hard drive 30GB

what would be the hardware recommendations for the main wsus server with Windows Server 2019 on a virtual machine ?

    Thanks for your posting on Q&A.

    The link you are referred to is not up to date. cthivierge's suggestion may be helpful. The link(cthivierge suggested) is Official reference and we could refer to the link to setup our deployment.

    Hope the above will be helpful. Have a nice day.
