Note: The following Specifications and Recommendations made by Office Practicum are based solely on what has worked for our clients.
Emergency Server or Workstation
Note: An emergency server stores historical and current backups of the medical database.
Note: If a second server does not exist within the practice, a robust workstation can be used to complete this task.
If the workstation is to be configured as an emergency server it should have:
- A minimum of 4 GB RAM.
- A minimum of a 120 GB Hard Drive (250 GB - 1 TB preferred).
- A dedicated network connection (no wireless connection).
- The ability to always be turned on so backups can run nightly.
