The speed at which computer performance levels advance is much higher than the increase of computer performance requirement levels for MONITOR. The specification of the computer equipment below is a recommendation based on the prerequisites and experience we have as of spring 2018, and remains until other is stated. In our recommendations regarding hardware we assess it to have a technical useful life of approximately 3 years.
If you have questions regarding system recommendations, choice of hardware, etc. you are always welcome to contact the Monitor Support Center!

The demands on the hardware are determined by the number of users in MONITOR as well as the size of the database. Small installations can be installed on a Small Business Server or on another existing server as long as the available resources are sufficient regarding main memory and hard drive space.
For large installations, we recommend that MONITOR database server is installed on a separate Windows server. This can either be a physical or virtual server.
The MONITOR database server should be adapted as a traditional SQL server. This requires a substantial amount of main memory, fast redundant drives, and a fast CPU.
In order to obtain the highest possible performance reliability in clients and servers, we recommend that you purchase all your hardware (database server, work stations, printers and network equipment) from well-known manufacturers. Please consult with your IT supplier/installer, or contact us at Monitor ERP System AB, before you purchase your equipment.
