System Requirements

This topic applies to the following Enterprise products and versions:

The following specifications are a general outline for a typical environment that can be deployed in either a physical or virtual environment. Network connectivity, network traffic, database size, storage speed, and other factors may impact performance. Faster processors and larger amounts of physical memory (RAM) are always a benefit.

General Overview

Enterprise uses the following technologies:

The Enterprise Streaming workflow is a highly scalable solution that should be deployed in a multi-server environment for effective load balancing and optimal system performance. Component services may be installed on a shared resource as indicated within this help topic. Certain components such as SQL server, Ipro Eclipse Analytics, and Workers should be installed on separate and dedicated resources. Analysis of the amount of data processed and reviewed within your organization should be conducted by your IT Department and/or IT Vendor to help determine initial system requirements, as the following recommendations may not meet your specific needs. Storage requirements are a function of the number of firm cases/matters, data processing, and velocity. Ongoing monitoring and regular review of system performance metrics in lto routine SQL maintenance is highly recommended to ensure and maintain optimal system performance.

If you plan to have reviewers connect from outside your private network (intranet, WAN, etc.), it is recommended that you install the IIS server on a separate machine in your DMZ so that you minimize the risk of exposing internal data.

All Workers in the environment must be configured to prevent Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) printer redirection. The option “Do not allow client printer redirection” policy setting must be enabled. This can be accomplished through the system’s registry or the group policy (GPO) settings for that environment. Additional information to configure printer redirection settings can be found on Microsoft’s website https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library. When changes have been applied, all Workers must be rebooted.
