1. General System Requirements

This document outlined the minimum and recommended hardware, software and network requirements for LifeSys RIS PACS. Possible bottlenecks are: lack of RAM, CPU speed and disk transfer rates.

Hardware must meet the minimum specifications or better. Lifetrack’s warranty, service and support provisions are void when minimum specifications are not met. We strongly recommend to meet or exceed the recommended specifications in order to use LifeSys RIS PACS at the highest performance.

2. Server Hardware and Software Requirements

Considerations in choosing the type of server to install:
– Number of concurrent users
– Volume of cases
– Required level of redundancy
