Server Hardware Requirements

Server hardware and network requirements may vary depending on your specific system and software, such as the number of users on your network or other programs that might use server resources, such as firewalls, software applications, mail systems, and so forth.

That said, here is what we recommend as a set of minimum hardware requirements.

Sage 100 Contractor Hardware Requirements

Microsoft® Windows Server® 2008: The minimum processor requirements for servers listed in the table above are based on the  Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system family. When updating or purchasing servers running newer operating systems such as Windows Server 2012 Standard, Windows Server 2012 Essential, Small Business Server 2008, and Server 2008 R2 Standard, we recommend that you also refer to Microsoft system requirements.

Disk space: A minimum of 600 MB is required for server and client computers running Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 software.  The above recommended free disk space is based on the installation of a single program and the average size of a  Sage 100 Contractor company database. Allow at least 50 MB for each additional company database.

Virtual servers: Sage 100 Contractor also supports virtual server environments.
