Scaling guidelines

The exact calculation of necessary hardware requires multiple parameters such as data volume and use patterns. However, the general guidelines could be defined as following:

  • If the number of concurrent users is less than 10 and the data update frequency is one per day or less, a single server should be sufficient.
  • For more users or more frequent data updates, a separate server for DBMS is recommended.
  • For the fault-tolerant environment, use two identical servers and any standard load balancer.
