If you are unsure how well your storage performs, please contact Nordic IT to arrange a technical performance analysis to help determine if the performance is sufficient.

Additional IOPS information

The recommended IOPS refers to 9 IOPS/User using 4KB 2/3 random write and 1/3 random read. Other factors such as latency, cache, tiering, throughput, fabric and other potential bottlenecks play a vital role in storage performance and therefore application performance.

Additional information about SQL installation

Microsoft SQL Server should be installed with the following Features selected

Authentication: Mixed Mode

Complete Management Tools

Full-Text and Semantic Extractions for search

Client Tools Connectivity

Collation: SQL_Latin1_General_CP1_CI_AS

It is also recommended to create a separate instance for reMARK

Make sure to store Log files on separate drives to avoid performance issues with read/write. Please read the recommended documentation from Microsoft on SQL Best Practices
