Server Requirements:

The number of processors in an office is based on the number of users. Each processor is only capable of 30 simultaneous connections to the database. For example:

Single Processor Server: 1-30 Users
Dual Processor Server: 31-60 Users

Server Required for Terminal Services:

As with the requirements above, the number of processors in an office is based on the number of users. Each processor is only capable of 30 simultaneous connections to the database. For example:

Single Processor Server: 1-30 Users
Dual Processor Server: 31-60 Users

Databases vs. Servers:

For each database required for the office, 1 Windows Server will be required. To ensure optimal performance and full application functionality, two databases may not reside on a single server.

Wireless Networking

Due to the large amount of data transmitted in the software, FortéEMR recommends the use of Terminal Services or Citrix to ensure proper performance when running over a wireless network.

Supported Backup Types

In the event that you must submit your database to support for inspection, please note that Forté technical support can accept CD and DVD based backups. Due to the number and variety of tape backup devices we cannot accept information on tape.
