It is highly recommended to have two systems for redundancy, performance, and to facilitate complete backups. Only a two system deployment will be supported in a production environment.

Physical hardware is recommended, but can be virtual under certain conditions, please discuss with your account manager first.

For every 10,000 SmartTags requires:

  • Processor: 32 core 2.7 GHz CPU
  • Memory: 256 GB
  • Storage Throughput: 15,000 IOPs
  • Network: Two (2) Ethernet Interfaces (Could reside on same subnet, then only one Ethernet Interface is used)

    • MongoDB (Included with EAS License)
  • Storage Sizing = A * (3600 / B) * C * D * 700  (Sizing Excel Calculator)
    • Example:

      VariableDescriptionExample Data
      ASmart Tag Count5000
      BCycle Time (Seconds)6
      CHours of Production8
      DHistorical Data Kept (Days)30


      • Storage Sizing = 5000 * (3600/6) * 8 * 30 * 700 = 504 GB
