Recommended Hardware for a STRUMIS Server

STRUMIS is a Client/Server application, and the two must be configured correctly to ensure the very best user experience possible. The server is where your centralised MS SQL database is stored and has to be capable of servicing many hundreds or thousands of database requests at any given time. The greater number of active users your company has, the higher demand on the server and therefore, more powerful hardware is required.

MS SQL of which STRUMIS is built upon does not require large amounts of cores and threads and as a result, fast clock speeds should be your focus to maximise performance. We recommend the Intel Xeon W-Series processors for this purpose. The fast clock speeds, world-renowned robustness of the architecture and support for Error-Correcting Code (ECC) memory makes these processors the ideal choice for a mission-critical, 24/7 rated server solution.

The Intel Xeon W-Series server platforms are capable of being configured to a far higher specification than is required for your STRUMIS server. This guarantees you have the all the headroom required to future proof your server should your requirements grow over time or if you plan to run additional services on the same server.

STRUMIS server can be quite memory intensive, and therefore, we recommend customers to configure their system with 16-32GB of memory for 11-25 users and 64GB+ for 25+ users. Memory usage is very dependent upon your specific setup and workflow, but rest assured that all our servers are capable of achieving these memory capacities and higher to ensure we are always capable of meeting your needs.

High-speed storage and fast IOPS are essential for any optimised MS SQL database, and a STRUMIS server is no different. We recommend a RAID 1 or RAID 10 enterprise-class SSD configurations to provide you with the performance and redundancy a mission-critical server solution demands. The total storage capacity you require is very particular from user to user, and unfortunately, there is no one size fits all answer. For example, do you plan to have external storage elsewhere on your network? What is the size of your user base? Do you plan to store documentation created by STRUMIS on the server? Contact us today for a free no-obligation tailored quotation specifically designed around your needs to find out more.

We also recommend implementing robust and high bandwidth networking capabilities. 1 Gbps network ports are ideal for running the majority of STRUMIS servers, and these are included in all Workstation Specialists server solutions as standard. Should you require even faster networking, then 10 Gbps+ networking ports can be installed. All our server solutions include remote management IPMI making setup and maintenance of these platforms a dream for system administrators.

Recommended Hardware for a STRUMIS Client

STRUMIS on the client-side is a very lightweight package capable of running on almost all office-level computer hardware and even tablets. We would recommend at least a quad-core processor, 8GB of RAM and a Solid State Drive (SSD) for your Windows 10 installation and application installs.

If you plan on using the BIMREVIEW model viewer, then you should include a graphics card to boost performance further. We recommend a dedicated low to mid-range NVIDIA GeForce graphics card to ensure your system runs smoothly while driving the BIMREVIEW model viewports and powering your displays.

Other software packages you run on the same machine may have very different hardware requirements. Contact our in-house technical consultancy team today for a personalised quotation tailored to optimise and accelerate all your software packages/workflow.
