Optional Components

File server

The same server can be used as database and file server. For smaller installations (< 15 users) a Microsoft Small Business Server can also be used. In larger installations, different server roles (file, database, domain, terminal, print, etc.) should be separated. Read the manufacturer’s specifications for more information.

Since the requirements can vary greatly depending on the use and number of users, only the minimum requirements are given here. If more detailed information is desired, the following key figures should be available:

  • Number of users
  • Number of workstations

Description of the infrastructure or components used, such as:

  • Server specifications and their installed roles
  • Client computer specifications 
  • Network components (switch, router, type of cabling)

We are also happy to help with the analysis or planning of your IT infrastructure to create the optimal solution for you.

 Note:

Depending on the configuration DynaMed can also be operated without a file server. In this case all documents are stored in the database – so you have to add the requests of the file server to the requests to the database server:

  • 1 GB RAM
  • 50 GB free hard disk space 
  • Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019

Terminalserver

DynaMed can optionally be run on a terminal server: 

  • Quad-Core processor
  • 2 GB RAM per concurrent user
  • Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019
