We generally recommend that SQL Server is on a separate and dedicated server from the Application server to ensure optimum performance.
We recommend a recent mid-range server with a multi-core Intel Xeon CPU and at least 16GB of RAM for the application server and 32GB on the SQL Server.For deployments with more than 30 concurrent users, we recommend at least 32GB of RAM for the application server and 64GB of RAM on the SQL Server.
SDL Trados GroupShare features three capabilities that have a particular impact on hardware requirements:
- SDL Online Editor - for Online Editor, please calculate 100MB per file and per user. Therefore, for 10 concurrent SDL Online Editor sessions, at least 1GB additional RAM is recommended.
- upLIFT - fragment Alignment (or FGA) is a very CPU-intensive task which only runs from 23:00 to 6:00, by default. For setups with large translation memories (TMs), or a large additions to TMs on a daily basis, it is recommended to have a fast multi-core CPU. For very large setups, contact our Technical teams to explore the option of delegating FGA services to a dedicated machine.
- Reporting – for the reporting module please add a further 8GB additional system memory.
