The BIC database stores the data and processed documents. We do not recommend the use of network attached storage (NAS) devices.
The following table lists the minimum technical specifications required for BIC database servers.
|As a minimum requirement, use a quad-core processor running at 3
Hardware requirements specified by respective DBMS vendors are necessary in addition to BIC-specific requirements. We recommend installing the database on a separate server.
|Minimum 8 GB
|Minimum 100 GB
We provide support for ODBC and web services as they relate to Microsoft Windows Server OS. However, you can use any server OS that allows database connectivity through ODBC and web services, such as REHL, AIX, and Solaris. A non-Windows server OS must provide the same level of functionality for ODBC and web services.
|Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2
If you use Oracle as a database, you must install a 32-bit Oracle client on any workstation or server where BIC communicates with the database, such as when using Designer or Verifier.
|A 100 MB/s network, configured at full duplex or auto-negotiate.
We recommend a 1 GB/s network to provide optimal performance.
