Journyx Hardware Recommendations

Journyx offers the following configurations, which should be considered as suggestive of the type of hardware that could be used for Journyx installations. The specific hardware configurations below are not necessarily tested or endorsed by Journyx, Inc. but are broad guidelines for planning.

It should be noted that individual requirements with regards to performance and scalability must be validated by qualification testing and tuning which model the expected production usage. Large variations from recommended hardware may be necessary depending upon factors such as burst loading, load types (e.g. proportions and timing of reporting, time entry, import/export synchronization) and user behavior.

Journyx recommends that installations for 150 users or more use two machines, one for the database server and one for the application server so both machines should be considered in capacity planning.

Single machine installations, generally considered acceptable for installations with 50 users or less are not covered specifically, but acceptable performance with configurations specified for Less than 150 Users is a reasonable starting point.

A Note On Network Connectivity

User interaction with the server is governed by normal networking methodology and is beyond the scope of this document, but requirements are similar to any web-based application where sufficient bandwidth is necessary to support the expected user load on the web server. Installations with expected high network usage for user connectivity may need multiple network connections and high-speed networks.

A minimum of a 100Base-T connection between the application and database servers for installations of 150 or more users is required. In congested networks a dedicated network connection between the database server and application servers is highly recommended.
