General Server Recommendations
  • Server grade hard drives running at 10k RPM recommended.
  • Our system will back up to a local drive. Customer must make further backups of this data to other media like tape, cart, or cloud using appropriate third party backup software.
    UPS to protect server from power fluctuations.
  • High speed Internet access – For download of software installation files, application and catalog updates, and remote customer support sessions.
  • Microsoft Remote Desktop Services is required for multi-branch or other remote access to the system. These systems can also provide an alternative if workstation hardware does not meet minimum requirements. These remote access solutions should run on a machine separate from the SQL Server machine.
  • The requirements listed here are in addition to the system requirements indicated by Microsoft for SQL Server 2008. See the SQL Server 2008 system requirements here.
  • For security reasons, Microsoft recommends that you do not install SQL Server 2008 on a domain controller.
