System Requirements for SMARTdoc

SMARTdoc makes use of many standard Microsoft® technologies already in place in many offices. These requirements are only a guideline. Please contact our technical department for an in-depth analysis of your office environment.

Document Management Software – Server Hardware Requirements

The minimum hardware requirements to run SMARTdoc Server in a production environment are:

  • A single (dedicated) server or virtual machine server (Citrix®, VMWare® Server, VMWare® Sphere, Microsoft® Hyper-V™, etc) can be used to run SMARTdoc Server and Microsoft® SQL.
  • SMARTdoc Server requires Microsoft SQL Server® to be installed and available on this server or virtual machine server.
  • Microsoft® SQL Server® can be run on a separate server or an existing Microsoft SQL Server®, as long as the version and service pack are supported, and it has sufficient capacity to run another application’s databases. Microsoft® SQL Server® needs to be available in the same domain.
  • When Microsoft® SQL Server® is also used by other applications, it is recommended to contact our technical team for more information to be sure no conflicts may occur.
  • This system running SMARTdoc Server can be used for other applications, either presently or in the future.
  • When no dedicated system is available to run SMARTdoc Server, SMARTdoc cannot be held responsible for any 3rd party conflicts which may occur during install or operation.

Minimum Requirements
Single (dedicated) Server or Virtual Machine Server A single (dedicated) server or virtual machine is required to run the document management server.
Processor A modern Dual Core or better AMD or Intel Processor (Quad core recommended, multiple processors is also recommended)
Server Memory 4GB or more is recommended for best performance when using Windows® Server.
Hard Disk A Raid 1 (mirrored) or Raid 5+ Hard drive configuration for fault tolerance is recommended. While the SMARTdoc Server installer is only 50 MB in size, there should be at least double the space of the current document or file collection on your file server / network drive. More space may be required depending on the number and size of documents to be managed by the document management software.

Backup

You are solely responsible for backing up any content or data entered into SMARTdoc Server. We recommend that you regularly and completely backup all of your content and data on the server.

Comprehensive recovery requires more than just data backup. Your MS SQL database contains tables, logs, and other components that structure the data. Using a specific backup solution for SQL, a unified and intuitive backup solution, is critical to create a secure live database backup that can be recovered successfully.

Proven database backup technology can significantly reduce disaster recovery time, so organizations can be up and running again in minutes instead of hours. One-step recovery and automated recovery to point-of-failure reduces downtime in order to meet Recovery Time Objectives (RTO). A rolling snapshot feature enables near-instantaneous recovery in cases where a database is damaged due to human error or logical data corruption.
