This article discusses a few server requirements that do not fall under hardware/software requirements and covers various options for integration.
- The server must be able to provide a stable connection to its users.
- The server must be able to access the DotActiv licensing server.
- The DotActiv IT team must be able to access the server even if only on a case by case basis.
- In the case of a shared server, a dedicated Windows user and service account as well as a dedicated SQL username and password.
Options For Integration
DotActiv can run on a dedicated or shared server. However, if a shared server is used, ensure that there will be sufficient resources to run the DotActiv application and shared applications.
The server can be onsite. In that case, it would become part of your existing infrastructure and managed by your IT department. Alternatively, the server can be offsite.
In the case where you are unable to host the solution in your network, DotActiv can host the server (on or off the cloud). However, this is limited in resources available as SQL Express limitations apply.
You would then be responsible for delivering data via FTP as well as ensuring that firewall connections are opened to allow users to connect to our server from their network.
