Media Repository (MR)
|Recording Server (RS)||Both functions on one server|
(combined MR and RS)
|Server Platform||Any industry standard PC server|
Quad core Intel Xeon 2.4 GHz or higher with Hyperthreading
rule of thumb:
System disk - 80 GB or more
Always use redundant disks with RAID and have separate Media and System volumes!
On Recording Servers: at least 2 disks with RAID 1
|Network||1x Gigabit Ethernet||1x Gigabit Ethernet|
plus 1x Gigabit Ethernet port if you use passive recording
(if you use a virtual server you need to dedicate
a physical port to the virtual server instance - available on VMware)
