These are the system requirements for product update 395 of the ASP technology version of Exact Synergy. Please be informed that third party software products like for example Microsoft Windows, Microsoft Office and Microsoft SQL Server have their own system requirements which might be different from the system requirements of Exact Synergy.
A complete overview of the system requirements per product update, can be found at the startpage of the system requirements.
The hardware and software requirements for product update 395 have been adjusted, compared to the requirements for product update 394. The most important adjustments: no longer support for clients running on Windows 2000 Professional, because MS internet explorer version needs to be 7.0 or higher (which is not supported on Windows 2000 professional).
The application is installed as a program on the IIS web server and all data is stored in an SQL database, which is stored on a Microsoft SQL Database Server . Both the IIS web server and the SQL database can be installed on the same machine in small e-Synergy implementations (up to 50 concurrent connections).
When more connections are required or use of a large database can be expected, the IIS web server should be installed on a single separate machine (suitable for up to 150 connections). This results in a setup with an Application Server (IIS + e-Synergy) and a separate Database Server (SQL). Note that the Client only communicates with the Application Server (IIS).
When dealing with even more concurrent connections, the workload of the application server can be divided over several Application Servers. This results in a more reliable situation with better performance. A dedicated piece of hardware, the 'load balancer', can divide all traffic among several (up to 50 or more concurrent connections) Application Servers which all connect to the same database server to store and retrieve data.
