    Another Small PDM Deployment Question

    Ryan Senio

      Hey everyone. I've been working with my reselller on a quote as well as what they would recommend on a small deployment.

       

      We'll have 5 users total, 3 of them being remote (using the web interface until they are in a permanent office, at which point they will run a replacated vault)

       

      Since I can run all the components on one server for the time being, my question is about the correct array configuration.

       

      I've seen this thread

      https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/48365

       

      But I'm wondering about the SQL setup, as I have always run the SQL Logs, and the DB's on a seperate array. Do you think I need such a setup? For example...

       

      All SAS 6gb/sec Drives

      OS - Raid 1

      SQL Logs - Raid 1

      SQL DB's - Raid 5

      Archive\Drawing Files Storage - Raid 5

       

      Or would there be no performance difference with...

      OS - Raid 1

      SQL Logs and DB - Raid 5

      Data Storage - Raid 5

       

       

      Overkill for a small deployment like this? Currently we only have about 35GB of cad files, what should I plan for in terms of DB sizes?
