When installing an EnterpriseOne client application there basically two ways to do it:
1. Independently on all of the user's computers.
2. On a terminal server - users use Remote Desktop Connection.
Combination of both is also a possible option. Some users may work in one way, while others – can use the other.
Workstation requirements for independent installation.
1. Hardware (the recommended minimum is in brackets)
Processor - x32, x64 Min: 1 core (2-4 cores)
Windows 10 - 2 GB
Windows 8 - 1 GB (2 - 4 GB)
Windows 7 - 1 GB (2 - 4 GB)
Windows Vista - 1 GB (2 - 4 GB)
Drive - 200MB free space. Microsoft recommends that at least 20% of the disk be permanently free for optimum performance.
2. Operating system
Windows Vista (not recommended)
Not supported: Windows XP and earlier.
Requirements when using a terminal server
When using a terminal server, the EnterpriseOne client operates on the terminal server, and workstations are only used as a terminal with a monitor, keyboard and mouse.
1. Terminal server requirements
The detailed planning of requirements for using a terminal server is beyond the scope of this document. The information here can only be used as a general guide. It should be borne in mind that hardware requirements are growing considerably with the increase in the number of the users.
1.1. Hardware (the recommended minimum is in brackets)
Processor - x32, x64 (x64). It is recommended 300-600 MHz to be available for each user. For example, a 4 GHz 4-core server processor can handle about 20-40 users.
Memory - 8 GB (16 GB) - It is recommended about 300-400MB to be available for each user.
Disk - RAID 1( there are no special speed requirements)
Windows Server 2012 (most recommended)
Windows Server 2008 R2
Windows Server 2008 (not recommended)
2. Requirements to the workstation for connection to a terminal server
There are no requirements except the minimum operating system requirements.
Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10
Android, iOS (not recommended for office work, only for mobile access)
In practice, almost any computer, not older than 10 years, can be used for a terminal server connection.
Communication environment (network)
1. Communication between the Client and the Application Server
The communication passed through a TCP / IP protocol and any network that supports it can be used. Users can connect via the Internet, but the exact speed that is needed can’t be determined, as it is highly dependent on user actions. EnterpriseOne supports data compression when communicating with the application server.
Possible connections: Local network 10/100/1000 Mbps, Internet 0.5 + Mbps.
In the case of multi-user capacity planning, about 0.2 - 0.5 Mbits will probably be needed per user.
Usual scheme of operation (a mix of these methods is possible):
(DB + Application Server) ---- Local Area Network 10/100 Mbps ---- Client 1 ... n
(DB + Application Server) ---- Internet 1-10 Mbps ---- Client 1 ... k
(BD + Application Server) ---- Local Network 10/100 Mbps ---- Terminal Server -----
---- Internet 0.2 Mbps / user ---- Terminals
Note: Internet traffic between the client installation and the server application may also pass through a GSM network, but it is recommended to be used only as a backup.
