ResWare™ Requirements

The sizing of servers is HIGHLY dependent on the number of employees, number of branches, bandwidth available at centralized and branch locations, average sizes of scanned images, number of visitors to TMS web site per hour, etc. It may be that you have servers that could be used for these purposes and that servers may not have to be purchased. Any hardware brand will do – whatever you’re comfortable with. The specs don’t need to be totally high end, but reasonably recent (ie: leading edge, not bleeding edge, so it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg).
 
These are the minimum specifications for SQL Server, ResWare Application Server, Web Server, and ResWare™ Client workstations. Again, sizing of servers is highly dependent on the number of users, number of remote connections, connection speeds and latency, order volume, workflow process complexity, etc. All proposed hardware should be discussed with Adeptive and Customer Internal IT support before purchases are made. These requirements below are periodically updated by Adeptive and the new requirements shall replace those listed directly below
 
 

SERVER HARDWARE

 
SQL Server:

  • • Single Quad Core Intel Xeon (note that some servers can have two or more sockets, but you can opt to populate only selecting a single CPU)
  • • 8GB RAM
  • • Windows Server Standard Edition 2008/2012 x64, drives in a RAID 1 configuration with two 146GB+ 15K RPM drives (drive speed is high to help with I/O; you can get bigger drives if needed)
  • • Redundant Power Supplies
  • • Rack mounting hardware

 
ResWare Application Server:
Same basic specs as the SQL Server but it can use larger, slower drives in a RAID 5 configuration. Use a chassis that you can add more drives to later for expansion. For example:

  • • RAID 5, with three 1TB 7.2K RPM drives
  • • 4GB RAM

 
Web server:
Same basic specs as the SQL Server, but slower drives can be used:

  • • RAID 1 with two 160GB 7.2 K RPM drives
  • • 4GB RAM

 
Notes:

  • • Storage can also be supplied via a SAN or other device that is accessible as a drive or UNC path.
  • • Servers can be virtualized if desired. However, virtualizing the SQL Server may result in poorer performance. Client’s system administrators will be responsible for all setup, maintenance and performance of such environment.

 
 

SERVER SOFTWARE

 
• Microsoft® SQL Server 2005/2008/2012 or later Core Processor License (CAL-based license cannot be used due to web-based access to the application) Please see www.microsoft.com web site or more information on requirement, as of March 2012, to purchase Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 based on the number of cores utilized for SQL in the SQL Server. For more information, visit http://www.microsoft.com/sqlserver/en/us/default.aspx and download the White Paper entitled “SQL Server 2012 Licensing Datasheet & FAQ: Published: March 7, 2012″. SQL Core Processor Licenses are now offered by Microsoft® in multiples of two (2).
We’ve found that a good source for SQL Server Licenses is Software Media. See link below:
