Database Server Recommendations For Ignite

The chart below shows the server recommendations for Ignite. Ignite Mobile will increase load on your server. To account for the increased load, you’ll want to add up the number of Ignite users plus the number of Ignite Mobile users and then use the recommendation for the total number of users. So, if your company has 9 Ignite users and 12 Ignite Mobile users, you want to follow the recommendations for 20-50 users because you have a total of 21 users.

This is a guideline and you can talk to your Blue Cow Software team leader if you have any questions or concerns.

Ignite Mobile Communications Server Recommendations

Ignite Mobile requires a 2nd server that will act as the IIS/Communications server.

Ignite Mobile uses IIS on this Communication server and Microsoft’s Best Practice is that IIS and a domain controller are not on the same server for security reasons. For More information please refer to Microsoft’s Security Best Practices Web Page.

Important: If your database server is running on a 64 bit operating system, then your IIS/Communications Server must also be a 64 bit operating system. They do not have to be the same version of Windows though. So your database server can be running Windows 2016 and the IIS/Communications server can be running Windows 2012 (or vice versa).
