Asset Bank is a flexible web-based digital asset management solution, which will run on most servers and operating systems. If you are aiming to host Asset Bank on your own server then this page explains the system requirements.
Please contact us if you want to discuss the requirements for your server in more detail.
Asset Bank for Windows Asset Bank will run on any Windows Operating System from Windows 95 upwards. However, for maximum performance we recommend Windows 2000, XP or one of the Windows Servers (e.g. Windows Server 2008, 2003 Server or 2000 Server).
A common configuration for Asset Bank on a Windows server is to run IIS (as the web server), MS SQL Server (as the database) and integrate with Active Directory for authentication.
Image Library for Linux or Unix Asset Bank will run on any Linux or Unix Operating System that supports Java and on which ImageMagick can be installed.
Asset Bank for Mac Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6 (not 10.4). Can be the client or server version. Intel CPU (not PowerPC). The faster the better - image and video conversions are CPU-intensive.
Asset Bank can be installed on a Virtual Server, assuming that its OS meets the above criteria.
We recommend that the server has at least 4GB of RAM. As image manipulations (e.g. for generation of thumbnails at upload, or for conversions at download) are memory intensive you will see significant performance increases if you add more RAM.
Your server needs to have enough free disk space to store all of the assets (images/videos/documents) that you intend to add to your repository.
You can configure Asset Bank’s 'Storage Devices' to enable you to store your assets in one or more locations, for example on a disk local to the server, network drives or NAS and SAN devices.
