Recommended System Configuration


Recommended Configuration

Operating Systems
The operating system can be installed on bare metal, or within Hyper-V, VMware, or other virtual environments. It is recommended that the physical server be located within the production facility; however, satisfactory results are possible in remote server installations.

The following operating systems have been tested and are acceptable:
      ► Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
      ► Windows 10 Professional & Enterprise 64 bit
      ► Windows Server 2012 R2
      ► Windows Server 2016
      ► Windows Server 2019


System Hardware
Minimum of 2 vCPUs (prefer 4)
16GB RAM (dynamic memory is acceptable)
System drive (C:) Minimum of 100GB
Data Drive (E:) Minimum of 100GB


Ethernet Configuration
To preserve best practices recommendations for system topology, the TagsCollector host server should be provided with a connection to two networks or VLANs. One of these network connections will be dedicated to the process/PLC data traffic, and the second connection dedicated to user, developer, and admin access. See Typical System Architecture  for additional information.


Remote Access
For remote installation, configuration, and maintenance of the system, the customer will need to provide RDP access to the server over a secure customer provided VPN. On site installation is available at additional cost for ITAR compliant facilities or for customers that do not wish to provide remote access.
