High-usage Production Environment
(Manual and Server Scheduling)

Notes: These requirements are for a system configuration capable of handling approximately 400 users who use the system for both Manual run and Server scheduling - with those users submitting a total of 220 or fewer new files daily.

If any parameter extends beyond what is noted in the high-usage production environment example, please contact the Winshuttle Customer Support team for consideration of your specific case.

If you are working through a VPN and/or accessing Evolve from a remote location, we recommend an internet speed of at least 10 MbPS (for both download and upload speeds). We also recommend that any latency between your browser and the Evolve server be less than 100 milliseconds. Slower internet connections can cause performance issues and in some cases timeout errors.

Database details:

  • SQL Server on Azure Virtual Machines allows a customer to run SQL Server inside a virtual machine in the Azure cloud. It is supported with all versions of Evolve, from the first version (20.0) to the most current version.

  • Azure SQL Managed Instance is a collection of system and user databases with a shared set of resources that is lift-and-shift ready. It is supported with Evolve 20.2 and all subsequent versions.

  • Azure SQL Database is built on standardized hardware and software that is owned, hosted, and maintained by Microsoft. Winshuttle does not support it and currently has no plans to support it.

Note: A High Availability setup can be created for this application by adding additional nodes and using a network load balancer. We have tested the F5 load balancer and it was successful; other load balancers should also work. We also support the SQL Always On capability of Microsoft SQL Server.

Considerations

  1. If the number of users or the load increases, the system requirements will also increase.

  2. The storage requirements will increase based on the document size (the size of the file and supporting documents).

  3. SQL server data must be purged or archived at regular intervals to avoid application issues. Based on your usage data, you can determine the frequency with which the SQL server data needs to be purged or archived.

Note: Please contact Winshuttle Customer Support with any questions.
