The IBM eServer is a good platform that is selected by multiple companies for the corporative software development. This software is developed on the base of a high performance server platform IBM eServer xSeries 455. The testing purpose checked if the NauDoc system was ready for exploiting on the corporative server platforms of the new generation. These servers are combining flexible opportunities for scalability with a high performance.
The testing of NauDoc was performed with the usage of the server IBM eServer xSeries 455 on the base of new 64 digit capacity processors Intel Itanium 2. These processors provide the best tools for a databases support with a big number of transactions and applications of the enterprise level, such as the ERP and CRM systems. The company presents the server in a basic four processor configuration with a four GB RAM. The hard disk capacity may vary, depending on the implementation, though in most cases it supports a hot replacement function.
For the electronic circulation of documents the NauDoc system uses the free operation system Linux as a software platform. This software platform is compatible with the IBM eServer models. There is one more advantage - the system does not have any difficulties with the technical support and it also requires the installation of the Zope applications server and object database ZoDB. The usage of this software platform allows a significant decreasing in the cost of the system of electronic circulation of documents. You should note that all the software solutions, required for the NauDoc work, are open source products; thus, you can change them if needed.
Testing results have proved that the NauDoc system is able to provide comfortable work for one hundred users at once with hundred thousand documents available in the database. This testing loading was handled by the system efficiently within an optimal time frame. Processing tasks with a greater workload is possible as well, though it can make the system work slower.
The given results of the testing prove that this system of the server platform configuration offers an opportunity for exploiting the system of the documents circling NauDoc at enterprises with a common number of users- up to five hundred people. At the same time, the system proposes a profitable ratio of the server hardware price per one user of the document electronic circling.
In a combination with wide opportunities of the IBM eServer xSeries, pSeries, iSeries computers, this firmware solution is able to protect the enterprise investments efficiently. The system NauDoc guarantees possibilities for implementing scalability of the solution in the future. Hence, you can use this system if you need an enterprise solution that will have the same efficiency in different business environments for some years.
In the modern conditions of fast changing requirements, the NauDoc is one of the almost perfect software products that could stay actual for a long time.
