  • Hardware/Software Specifications | 5

    Virtual ServersCovetrus standard recommendations remain that, for performance and troubleshooting purposes, it is best practice for the SQL database server to be a metal server as there are less variables which can affect performance in a physical unit versus a virtual software-based emulated server.

    Before proceeding with setting up a virtual and hosted server for your business, you must comply with the following:

    { You must have a local IT that supports cloud/virtual servers.

    { Your system must be evaluated by Covetrus | ImproMed.

    Virtual Host ServerProcessor: Xeon Quad Core 2.5+ GHz or higher

    Memory: 32 GB of RAM

    Drives: RAID 5, 10, or SAN with 500 GB minimum capacity

    Adapters: Video Accelerator supported and Gigabit Network Cards are 1 per SQL VM or 1 per 2 RDS VM.Power Supply: Dual power supply recommended

    Operating System: Windows Server (see “Server Operating Systems Compatibility”)

    Input Devices: USB Keyboard & Mouse

    Battery Backup: 1500 VA

    SQL Version: Refer to “Microsoft SQL”

    RDP Access: ImproMed Customer Support must have RDP access to the host server with Administrator rights

    These are the minimum specifications for the Virtual Host Server. As users are added these specifications will need to be scaled to match.

    For performance and troubleshooting purposes, ImproMed recommends the SQL database server to be a metal server. Performance in a physical unit versus a virtual software-based emulated server is far superior.

    Hosted Server Solution

    Internet InformationType: Business Class

    Speed:Minimum upload at host for 10 remote desktop connections is 3 mbps. For each additional 4 remote connections, add an additional 512 kbps. Remote location download speed is a minimum 10 mbps.

    Networking Requirements:

    1. Hardware/point-to-point VPN2. Print Servers for all printers3. Proper DNS resolution across VPN

    Configuration Notes: { Verify the servers used in the data center can access one another. { ImproMed Customer Support will require an administrative desktop login for each server. { Printers should be installed on the Terminal Server at the data center over the VPN. { VHD size for virtual or data center servers should be at least 100GB:

    { 30GB for OS plus 20GB Shares and growth plus 5 x initial DB size (DB + IBU {2 x DB} plus Replication snapshot {1 x DB size} plus DB Growth estimate {1 x DB Size}).

  • Hardware/Software Specifications | 7

    { VHD that can be scaled should start at this and be increased dynamically as needed.

    Below are the advantages and disadvantages for a hosted server.

    Advantages:

    { Data is located off-site to prevent failure due to in-hospital issues.

    { Virtual systems are “scalable” and easily upgraded if the host setup has enough resources to spare.

    { Office staff is not needed to do maintenance on the server.

    { Dedicated server support team (24/7 Support of the connection to this system is required).

    { Updates are faster as RDP will be needed for connections; therefore, fewer stations will need client applications updated.

    Disadvantages:

    { Loss of internet connection means loss of access to data and ability to do business.

    { An off-site server will not be supported opening Software locally on the stations. It has to be over RDP.

    { Owners are not in possession or control of their data/server.

    { You are leasing server space and required software, if provided, by the cloud service; you own nothing.

    { NO local access to backups. If a copy of your data is needed, you have wait for it to be uploaded and/or downloaded to a place where it can be accessed.

    { Physical security of your client’s information is no longer in the owner’s hands; you have to rely on the service hired to ensure security of personal information.

    { Limits the amount of support ImproMed is able to provide.

    { COST - For the redundant setup a data center typically provides, (duplicating servers across states and time zones) most offices cannot justify the cost.

    { The backup solution will need to be reviewed with ImproMed prior to the installation.

    Multi-Site/Multi-Practice

    { Covetrus will not support running PIMS locally on a computer when the server is in another physical location (i.e. over a VPN).

    { Connection Speeds - Typically performance issues with RDP are a result of insufficient UPLOAD speeds at the offices.

    Point-to-Point VPNCovetrus recommends the use of Point-to-Point VPN between the server and the local office.

    { This will help with printer connection.

    { This helps with paperless/paper-light setups for scanned files and share access.

    { Proper DNS resolution across VPN includes the ability for computers at the remote location to resolve the server name to IP address at the hosted location.

    { Needed for all integrations including labs, lab requests, DICOM, etc.

    Virtual Server Performance Considerations { The following information is taken from: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/

    winserverhyperv/thread/c7ea065f-74ba-46c5-af32-2b7e93f25191

    { Disk I/O Performance.

    { Variable size VHD is slowest.

    { Physical disks are recommended to be passed through to a VM, when the needed size of the disk exceeds the current VHD limit of 2TB (This limit is about to be pushed up to 16TB using new VHDX format in Hyper-V included in upcoming Windows Server “8”) or if the VM is, for example, a SQL server with heavy load which requires direct disk access due to high disk I/O.

    { With Windows Server 2008 R2, fixed VHD performances has raised, and benchmark and test results show that they offer almost similar results in read, and physical disks are better than fixed VHD in write.

    { The theory of “Virtual SQL Servers” would be VHD for OS (fixed disk Size) plus a physical disk (or RAID array) captured by the VM to use for the data/shares and high I/O items.

    { Capture of raw hardware items into VM provides best performance overall.

    { Network stability asks for a dedicated NIC for SQL Server, not a shared Virtual switch.

    { Enabling 3d Acceleration on Virtual Graphics Processor will stabilize performance in the Software.
