HVMS: Hardware and IT Requirements


HVMS utilizes an internal computer network and reliable internet connections to properly operate. A central computer server is required to store an SQL database, which all HVMS user computers, laptops and tablets will utilize to connect to for sending and retrieving information and data.

Updates: Windows Server 2008 R2, 2012 and 2012 R2 and Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 Pro are supported by HVMS. In addition, HVMS can now also be run on SQL 2012. Please contact us if you have any questions about HVMS hardware compatibility.

Server Hosted at Your Location

To maintain control over your practice's server and data, you must utilize a server set up by your IT staff at your location. The minimum requirements for a server are:

  • Quad-Core Intel Xeon Processor, 2.5 GHz Or Better
  • 8GB Ram (16 GB or Better Preferred)
  • Hardware RAID 5 or RAID 1+0 Hard Disk Array with minimum 400GB Usable Space
    • Recommended Partitions:
      • 80GB Operating System Partition
      • 150GB ‘Database’ Partition that has a cluster size of 64K (versus the default 4K). This partition will only be used for SQL Server Database storage (data file, log file, tempdb). Keeping the database partitioned ensures that the database files are not fragmented across the physical disks.
      • Final partition made up the remaining data and designated as a ‘Data’ partition. This is where the install files for HVMS will reside along with other general files and database backups.
    • It is highly recommended to have multiple RAID arrays for all SQL Server installations beyond a single array with multiple partitions, contact us for more details.
    • Windows Server 2012 R2 x64 Standard (5 cals)
    • SQL Server 2012 x64 Standard (5 cals) (32 Bit Versions Not Recomm * Note - We do not yet support SQL Server 2014.
    • Static IP Windows Network Setup With RDP Access to Server, VPN Access a Bonus

    Internet Connections

    HVMS utilizes internet connections for for a number of features.  For this reason, you must have high-speed, reliable internet connections for HVMS to operate properly.

    Important Note: HVMS will not function properly through satellite internet connections. The time delay in information being transferred through satellite internet is too slow that if often results in database queries timing out. In particular, current satellite internet technology sees information upload rates that are about 1/10th the speed of download rates, much too slow for HVMS requirements.

    Tablet Hardware Requirements

    HVMS is available for use on mobile tablets, allowing you to bring the power of the software out into the field with you. The minimum hardware requirements for tablets are:
    • 4GB Ram Minimum - 6 GB or more Recommended
    • Minimum 7200 RPM Drives @ 100GB+ (SSD Recomended)
    • Intel Core i5 2GHz+
    • SQL Server 2008 R2 Express, or SQL 2012 Express
      * Note - We do not yet support SQL Server 2014.

      (x64 Editions of Windows Highly Recommended)
