ON-PREMISE

Microsoft SQL Server component

  • Administrator rights to install software
  • Operating System: Windows 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, 2019 or 2022 server OS (Recommended 64-bit)
  • Microsoft SQL Server Standard, Web, or Enterprise 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017 or 2019 required. (Recommended 64-bit SQL)
    (SQL Server Express is not supported)
  • Dedicated multiple-core CPU required (multiple processor and multiple-core CPU hardware server recommended for larger installations)
  • 8 Gigabytes or greater of RAM dedicated to SQL Server recommended
  • For very large repositories, 64-bit OS with 16 or 32 Gigabytes of RAM recommended or more.
  • Network speed: 1000 Base-T is strongly recommended
  • Screen resolution set at OS recommended default value and 100% text size

SQL Server storage

SQL Server requires a minimum of 6 GB of available hard-disk space. Disk space requirements will vary with the SQL Server components you install.

Document Locator database storage requirements are 1.3 to 1.5 times your existing file storage. Add accordingly to plan for three- to five-year's growth. In addition, plan for backup storage on a different drive capable to maintain at least four to five copies of your SQL Database.

Virtual server environments

The following virtualized environment is supported for Microsoft SQL Server. See the respective links below from the vendor.

Note: Running SQL Server on a virtual machine will be slower than running natively because of the overhead of virtualization.

Microsoft SQL Server High Availability

  • Active/Passive Clustering is supported
  • Log Shipping for Read Only database

Document Locator server component

  • Administrator rights to install software
  • Windows 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, 2019, or 2022 server OS (64-bit required)
