The Worldox Document Management System is installed directly on the computer that you are using as your file server or on a network share. A separate workstation-class machine will act as the Profile and Text Indexer.
File Server/Share Requirements for Worldox
Worldox does not require a dedicated file server. It simply needs one (or more) file shares with sufficient disk space to hold the documents and the associated databases at each office.
The Worldox database overhead is approximately 20-30% 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.
These databases must reside on the same resource (share) as the documents. We recommend 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 Microsoft Server 2012 and higher. 8.3 Filename Support is recommended but not required with GX4. For information about SMB support, please see our SMB White Paper available to customers in the Worldox Knowledgebase.
Profile/Text Indexer Workstation Requirements for Worldox
Worldox requires at least one Profile/Text indexer PC per data center. 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.
Minimum recommended Profile/Text Indexer workstation specifications are:
- Processor: Core 2 Duo (or higher). A faster processor as well as a Multi-Core Processor will provide max performance.
- Memory: 4 Gig of RAM Min.
- Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 or 10
- Software: Microsoft Outlook 2013 or 2016 Mail client to allow for email indexing
- Free Local Disk Space: At least 50% of the disk size of the documents being indexed.
- Network Connection: 1 Gbps recommended.
Workstation Requirements for Worldox Client Software
Worldox will run on virtually any PC that can run Windows 10, or 8.1. Worldox uses on average around 400 MB of local disk for application and temporary files. Please note the minimum workstation specifications for acceptable performance:
- Processor: Core 2 Duo (or higher)
- Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8.1 or 10
- Memory: 4 GB recommended.
Requirements for Worldox Web
Worldox Web 3.0 is a companion product that works with Worldox GX4 running WDU14 or newer code. It offers access to your firm’s documents from any Internet browser or supported handheld device like iPad, iPhone or Web enabled phone or tablet.
Worldox Web requires the following infrastructure:
- GX4 uses Worldox Web 3.0 and up as web companion
- Windows Server 2012 R2 or higher running IIS
- Full time broadband internet connection
- Static IP address with a corresponding hostname
- A Windows 10 (x64) workstation to serve as a Worldox Proxy Server is highly recommended
Please contact your Reseller or World Software Technical Support for additional information or clarification on system requirements, if necessary.
