Emergency Server or Workstation
|An emergency server stores historical and current backups of the medical database.|
For this reason it is preferred that a second server be used to handle this task given the built in redundancy of most servers today. A second server that acts as a terminal server or web server works very well as an OP emergency server.
|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.
