When running Cubit Estimating software on a Terminal Server or Remote Desktop Server, it is important to have robust system specifications to ensure smooth performance.
Here are some recommended system recommendations for Terminal services:
For Existing recommendations related to Desktops and Servers please refer to System Requirements for Cubit Estimating
Choose a high-performance multi-core processor, such as an Intel Xeon or AMD Ryzen or equivalent in your virtual infrastructure, to handle the demanding calculations and rendering required by Cubit Estimating.
Allocate sufficient RAM to accommodate both Cubit Estimating and multiple users.
Aim for a minimum of 8GB per user dedicated to Cubit Estimating but adjust based on the complexity of the Cubit Estimating projects, additional concurrent applications and the number of concurrent users.
Opt for fast and reliable storage options. Consider using solid-state drives (SSDs) for the operating system and Cubit Estimating installation, as they offer faster read/write speeds. Additionally, ensure enough storage capacity to store Cubit project/job files.
Cubit Estimating relies on graphics processing power. Choose a professional-grade graphics card from NVIDIA or AMD, with dedicated memory (VRAM) and support for OpenGL 2.0 or higher, to handle the complex 3D rendering and visualization tasks.
A stable and high-speed network connection is crucial for smooth collaboration and data transfer in a terminal server environment. Utilise a reliable Ethernet connection with adequate bandwidth to handle the expected user load. Avoid having the database and Terminal server utilising remote links.
Select a server-grade operating system such as Windows Server, referring to System Requirements for Cubit Estimating for supported operating systems versions, specifically designed for terminal server environments, to ensure stability, security, and efficient resource utilization.
Virtual environments are supported for use with Cubit Estimating version 10 or above, Consider implementing virtualization technologies like Hyper-V or VMware, allowing for better resource management, scalability, and easier maintenance of the terminal server environment.
Cubit Estimating relies on environmental security practices, so ensure you have appropriate security perimeters in place with suitable access settings and appropriate monitoring of activities in the environment.
Backup and Redundancy:
Establish a comprehensive backup strategy to protect critical Cubit Estimating project files and ensure business continuity. Implement redundancy for critical components like power supplies and network connections.
For performing backups on the Terminal/RDP server, we suggest having at least 2.5 times the total size of the database as free disk space. Additionally, it is advisable to have an additional 10% of free disk space of the total storage. This ensures that there is sufficient space available to accommodate the backup files and allows for any potential growth or changes in storage requirements.
Monitoring and Management:
Utilise appropriate tools for monitoring system performance, user activity, and resource utilization to identify and address any issues promptly.
