See the table below for detailed information on system requirements for on-premise installation of NetX products. NetX will not provide assistance with configuration in unsupported environments. For a list of software required for hosting NetX, see Supported Platforms. If you are a SaaS (hosted) customer, NetX sysadmins will be deploying your site and this article will not be relevant.
Recommended system requirements
Recommended system requirements depend on a number of different variables (eg. maximum asset size, maximum image conversion load, size of the asset repository, and acceptable latency, etc) as well as the maximum number of concurrent requests that the system will experience during peak hours. The NetX Sizing Guide could help you choose a server with sufficient resources based on your use case and usage. NetX typically will not perform well in a tightly constrained, shared environment. Please be careful to ensure that your choice of hosting platform is capable of supplying sustained processing and memory capacity for the server.
Single server deployment (SMB/departmental use)
Minimum: 4 cores
Recommended: 4 cores
Recommended: 16GB; larger installations may require more than 16GBs of RAM
|Local disk storage||
A minimum of 500GB local storage is required for database, logs, and application only. SAS or SSD highly recommended. Asset/constituent storage space will vary depending on the expected size of your repository. If you want to use NAS or SAN for asset storage, gigabit connectivity is required. For best performance, asset repository and related appFiles should be stored on dedicated physical/virtual volumes — NFS, SMB, or other mounted volumes are supported.
Enterprise multi-server deployment (multiple servers can be used for each role, as necessary for scaling)
|Server role||CPU||Memory||Local disk storage|
|Search engine||16 cores||32GB||500GB SSD|
|Application (NetX)||4 cores||16GB||100GB|
