Worldox and Related Technical Requirements
The Worldox Document Management System is installed directly on the computer that you are using as your file server. You will also need to designate a separate workstation-class machine as the Profile and Text Indexer.
File Server Requirements for Worldox
Worldox does not require a dedicated file server. It simply needs one (or more) public drives mapped to a resource with sufficient disk space to hold the documents and the associated databases at each office.
The Worldox database overhead is approximately 25-35% of the profiled documents. For example, for every 100 MB of documents, Worldox may use up to an additional 35 MB to store and index associated profiles and text.
The Worldox databases must reside on the same resource (drive) as the documents. World Software recommends setting aside enough free disk space per managed resource to maintain at least five (5) years of additional documents.
For Microsoft Active Directory integration (Optional) Worldox requires MS Server 2003 or higher
*Note for 2008 server and higher, 8.3 Filename Support needs to be on. We highly recommend SMB2 be disabled and if not fully patched.
Profile/Text Indexer Workstation Requirements for Worldox
Worldox requires at least one Profile/Text indexer PC per office. Worldox indexers are standard workstation-class PCs. Their local disk requirements are for temporary space only; no permanent data is stored on an indexer. Most of today’s off-the-shelf workstations are sufficient to serve as an indexer.
Important Note: Your database build and update times correlate directly to the speed and resources of your indexer PC. If you have large data sets, Worldox Software recommends utilizing a more powerful PC for indexing.

- Processor: Core 2 Duo (or higher). A Faster processors as well as a Multi-Core Processor will provide max performance.
