These are the system requirements for Release 382 of the current 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 release, can be found at the startpage of the system requirements.
The hardware and software requirements for release 382 have not changed compared to release 381.
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.
