    File Storage Hardware Requirements

    File storage

    • The SecSign ID only requires minimal file storage for non-confidential files in the database (no passwords are generated, used or saved in your database or server.
    • Even with >2000 user 1GB is sufficient for the database files (in addition to the requirements for the database)
    • We recommend 2 GB tablespace for the database (for all active files plus temporary files and database log files)
    Components Requirements
    • 1 CPU Core recommended for > 2000 user (in addition to the OS)
    • No additional CPU Core required for < 2000 user
    • 2 GB recommended (in addition to the OS)
    • No additional RAM required for < 2000 user
    • For a database not installed in the same VM only space for the log file is required.
    • We recommend at least 1GB of storage for storing log files ( Log files are zipped daily and overwritten monthly)
    • If the database is installed in the same VM, the file storage has to be added accordingly.
