Server Requirements

There are many installation configuration options for running the bly:Mobile application within your network environment. The recommended server requirements are identified below and represent the minimum requirements. Based on user load and other applications that are running on the server these requirements may need to be enhanced to accommodate the additional server load:

Operating System Support:

Windows Server 2012 - R2 - All editions

Windows Server 2008 Standard or Enterprise - 32 bit or 64 bit

Windows Server 2003 - Service Pack 2

Windows Server 2003 - R2 - 32 bit - Service Pack 2

Windows Server 2000 - Service Pack 4

Windows Server Advanced Server - Service Pack 4

Recommended Minimum Server Processor:

Intel Core 2 Duo

Recommended Minimum Server Memory:

1GB Core RAM + 90MB per Active User Logged into bly|MOBILE.  (Note this does not include RAM for the core Operating System)

Installation Scenarios:

Installation Scenario 1: bly:Mobile Installed on the Sage 100 Application Server

This installation scenario allows for the the bly:Mobile Application directly on the Sage 100 Application Server. bly:Mobile will be installed in a separate directory on the server and will allow the end user to access the Sage 100 Application via that traditional client or vie the bly:Mobile Web Access.

Installation Scenario 2: bly:Mobile Installed on a separate Sage 100 Application Server

This installation scenario allows for the bly:Mobile Application (Apache and other supporting applications) to be installed on a separate Windows Server. Note that this installation will require a mapped drive to the Sage 100 application server in order to properly render the screens. It is also recommended that these exist on the same network or a managed network to allow for the maximum speed available between the servers.
