Customized Udutu™ ServersClients who purchase and install the Udutu Course Authoring Software on an internal server should ensure that the server hardware and software adheres to the following recommendations:
Recommended hardware and software configuration:
- Hardware: Dual Core Intel Processor (2.00 GHz or greater), 4 GB RAM, Separate Hard Drive(s) dedicated to the course authoring software (RAIDed)
- Software: Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft SQL Server 2005, Microsoft PowerPoint 2003
- Protection of Information and Data: The implementation of an appropriate data backup plan is recommended to protect completed course content. We recommend a UPS that provides sufficient autonomy to allow the server to perform an orderly shutdown in case of loss of main supply power.
