System Requirements

Before you install the software, carefully review our system requirements to make sure your hardware and network meet our minimum standards.

Optimized for the Firebird™ SQL Database

DBA uses the Firebird™ relational SQL database (structurally similar to SQL Server® and Oracle®), which is designed to run on server hardware with fast processors and sufficient RAM as well as on efficient networks with high-capacity switches, network cards, and cabling.

If you have older equipment and network connections that do not our minimum system requirements, now is a good time to have a qualified technician assess your hardware and network and upgrade them as required.

Internet Access Required

To use DBA, your company must be equipped with Internet access (DSL, Cable Modem, Satellite, T1, etc). Broadband access is recommended. Our software, product updates, documentation, and online support are all delivered over the Internet directly to your DBA system.

Power Protection System (UPS)

An abrupt power loss or crash from unclean power is the most common cause of data corruption. Your file server requires clean and continuous power to function properly. Factories are especially subject to power fluctuations. It is imperative that you protect your server with a power protection system that includes surge suppression, power conditioning, and battery backup.
