Enterprise Edition

The following are hardware recommendations for a distributed server topology. A server is defined as a computer that has a hardware-level fault tolerance that communicates over a TCP/IP network. Fault tolerance compliance requires redundant power supplies and RAID on all drives.

Also ensure that the Windows swap file (Pagefile.sys) size is set to a minimum of 4 GB on each SES computer and each TAS computer. For information on configuring swap file size, see Windows Server Help.
