    Hardware notes

    •Additional applications require more resources. Recommendations are based on a standalone server with little to no additional network traffic. Running additional applications on the same server will require additional resources.

    •Add RAID to protect data. Adding RAID to your storage configurations is one of the most cost-effective ways to maintain both data protection and access.
    For the database and file servers, we recommend using RAID 10 (minimum RAID 5). For the application and web servers, we recommend using RAID 1.

    •Plan for different user types. It is important to keep in mind what type of user will be working with the system. For example, 100 users working in Operations modules will use the system more intensively than 100 users working in Financial modules. The guidelines in this document are intended for users of Operations modules on a non-customized system, with little to no additional processing or network traffic.

    •Plan for backup and recovery. Each site must have adequate backup and recovery capabilities. We strongly recommend that you set up a “hot standby” system with a backup database. This standby system should have a similar configuration to the primary production system. The standby system can also be used for development and testing.

    •Plan for disk space requirements. The amount of required disk space varies widely, depending on the number of customer records, archiving plans, and backup policies. Required disk space can also vary depending on the amount of information held for each customer. Therefore, it is important to estimate disk space requirements prior to installation, and to purchase sufficient disk storage to allow for significant growth in the volume of data.

    •Protect against power outages and surges. We recommend that you use an uninterruptible power supply.

    •Understand the effect of product customizations. Note that product customizations can significantly affect the performance of Sage 300, and should be evaluated carefully when specifying hardware.
