SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS AND DEPLOYMENT
There are two types of OIC CK-2007C servers: application servers and information model servers. Each type has its own deployment scheme.
Image "Typical deployment scheme for OIC CK-2007C" shows a scheme with a cluster of information model servers and a group of two application servers running in the mode of a mutual hot standby.
The server part of OIC CK-2007C is implemented to run on Microsoft Windows Server 64-bit platform. This allows to increase the address space of server RAM, significantly improving the performance and scalability of the complex.
Disc subsystem parameters and configuration affect the performance of the complex. That is why high-speed hard disk drives, integrated into RAID-arrays with back up and distribution of record flows between spindles, are used for automated systems that handle immense data flows. The disk subsystem storage is determined by the total number of measurements, signals, report, plan and other parameters, which the complex operates; the archive depth for each category of information; the selected data storage strategies.
Typical recommended hardware configuration for control centers with 50 concurrent users is 8-core (two 4-core processors) server configuration of 16 GB RAM, RAID1/RAID10 buffered to provide high data recording flow. These servers process 460 million measurements per hour. At peak-load times they process up to 250,000 measurements per second.
Client workstations shall provide efficient performance under operating systems Windows XP or Windows 7.
The server part of OIC CK-2007C runs under Microsoft Windows Server 2003/2008 R2 x64. Database management system MS SQL Server 2005/2008 x64 is required for storage of operational data and information model.
