Server Hardware and Software Requirements

What Server, Hardware & Operating System is needed to run Acclamare?

  • Acclamare is built on Microsoft Windows platform.
  • Acclamare runs on operating systems Server 2008 R2 and above. At present, this includes 2008 R2, Server 2012, and Server 2016 .
  • Acclamare requires SQL Server 2008 R2 or higher. At present, this includes SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, and SQL Server 2014.

“Standard” edition provides all the features necessary. “Express Edition” will not provide all the features and resources required for production implementation of Acclamare.

As of SQL 2012, you can NO LONGER install SQL Server on the same server as your Active Directory server without compromised SQL permissions. These must be separate servers.

  • Acclamare requires very few resources. The hardware and memory you choose should be based upon the recommendations accompanying the OS and SQL Server version you select. The performance of SQL Server database improves greatly as system available RAM increases. For this reason, I would install no less the 8G RAM and would recommend 12-16G. That would be more than enough RAM to insure sufficient overhead for SQL.
  • Enterprise-grade SSD drives will provide outstanding read/write speed for the SQL database. However 15,000 rpm traditional drives will be fine. SSD's are beginning to become a standard option on database servers.
  • Acclamare will operate under both Physical and Virtual Servers implementations. Keep in mind to dedicate enough RAM as discussed in prior bullet.

What Client, Hardware & Operating System is needed to run Acclamare?

  • Acclamare client runs on Windows 7 SP1 and above. At present, this includes Windows 7 SP1, Windows Vista, and Windows 10.
  • Acclamare client does not require heavy resources. Workstations typically have no less than 4G RAM installed. Users who are heavier multi-taskers (Acclamare plus multiple other applications) would likely be better served by having 8G installed.
  • Acclamare client makes heavy use of Dynamic Inquiries. This feature is best used in a dual-monitor configuration. I would go so far as to say that a dual-monitor setup is an essential requirement for most users except for a computer solely begin used for Shipping and Receiving functions.
