TechDoc System Requirements

TechDoc 9 System Requirements

To run TechDoc 9 on a server, here's what it takes:

  • Processor: Intel or AMD x86-64 64-bit processor (Itanium is NOT supported); Multi-processor and/or multi-core highly recommended
  • RAM: 4 GB Minimum; consider more if database is local
  • Hard disk space: 250 GB Recommended Minimum on 1 or more drives; Size varies greatly based on number and size of documents stored
    • We recommend a minimum of 3 hard drives for performance reasons;1 for OS, 1 for application and Database, 1 for File Areas
    • You need to determine the initial capacity for File Area drives. This is where the documents (scanned images, Office documents, CAD files, etc.) are stored. TechDoc does not store documents in the database. Note that TechDoc can easily be told to use additional storage that is added at a later date. The size of the File Area hard drives is completely dependent on the customer's needs. Determine the average size of a customer document times the number of documents that they wish for the system to initially handle to calculate the File Area hard drive(s) size.
    • Consider RAID for Performance/Reliability
  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2016 (any 64-bit edition that support IIS)
  • Database: Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2014, or SQL Server 2016 (any edition) running locally or remotely
