How to Determine Required Storage Size?

The service life of a server is between 5 to 8 years.

The initial 20MB database size could grow up to 1GB yearly depending on the number of records keyed into the ProLine system.

For the first year, the hard disk space usage forecast are between 20GB to 40GB for the database files, server applications, office documents, pictures and other project files.

Multiply this number with 8 years, the calculated total would be between 160GB to 320GB of data at the end of the server's service life.

Then the recommended server hard disk space would be either 320GB or 500GB.


Backup Storage

The backup storage should have the capacity to backup the entire server in case of failure, as well as all the archived data.

A USB connected or networked external storage with at least the double the capacity of the server's hard disk space is recommended.

Based on the above recommendation, the preferred backup storage size should be between 500GB to 1TB. You will require at least 2 units of backup disk with same capacity.


Note on SQL Server

ProLine can be installed on Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, which free of charge. However, this edition has a limitation of 4GB per database and single CPU utilization. If usage exceeds the said limitations, then it is required to purchase the SQL 2005 Standard Edition.

Note on System Implementation

Unlike installing a software, a proper system needs implementation. System comprises of the equipment, software, people that uses it and the standardized procedures uniquely developed, held together with the internal support team. Once a system is properly implemented, it enables the company to be productive, responsive and easily managed.

Implementation involves understanding the software, identifying operation requirements and mapping the operations to software functions. A requirements gap will be formed during the mapping process when special requirements are not supported within the software.

Once the mapping and gaps are fully understood and viable for use, the next step is to install and configure, migrating data, train users and document the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the system.

Note: The above software does not include implementation. Since each implementation is as unique as the company's operation and therefore estimates are only available after a study is conducted.

Alternatively, if skill sets are available within the company, they can perform the study themselves before engaging professionals to save costs.
