System requirements

Below are the minimum system requirements for CPR, as well as additional recommendations for running our software.

Hardware

  • Dual Intel Xeon 3.2 GHz processors
  • 4 GB of RAM or more (16 GB recommended)
  • 136 GB or larger hard drive (we use SCSI RAID with a hot spare for peace of mind)
  • CD-ROM drive
  • Ethernet adapter (1000 Mbits/sec Intel)
  • SuperVGA (1024x768) or higher resolution video adapter
  • Keyboard and mouse

Software

  • Microsoft Windows Server 2003, 2008, 2012, or later
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2012, or later (but not the Express editions)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 or later
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 5.0 or later and ASP.NET 2.0 or later

To insure reliability you may want to consider things like:

  • RAID storage for hard drive fault tolerance and hot spare setup
  • Dual power supplies
  • Anti-virus software
  • Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) plugged into an emergency power source
