System Requirements

Easysite is built on the Microsoft .Net Framework (4.0) and supports single and multiple server deployments.

It's also completely scalable and offers stellar performance - find out more about scalability

Please use an approximate setup to the virtual machine requirements above

Disc Sizing

Size of the Data partition depends on the size of the Database. As a guide allow for 6 x the Database size to account for backups and expansion of the files during upgrades (i.e. for a 10 Gb Database allow between 60 Gb and 100 Gb).

A separate disk for Log files (SQL and Web) improves performance but this isn’t necessary.

As a guide, a top of the range single server configuration would probably be:

  • OS  -  2 disks mirrored or RAID 5 on 3 disks

  • Logs - 2 disks for log files again mirrored

  • Data - 4 disks in RAID 10 (which generally have good read and write performance)

Email Sending

Easysite allows administrators to configure an SMTP mail server that will allow mail to be sent from the host server or external mail server.

This can be implemented using an SMTP Relay Host service or external mail server.
