2 Hardware What sort of does DSpace require? What about sizing the server? How much disk space do I need? There are no specific server requirements for DSpace except UNIX. (Because the application is written in Java, in theory it will run on other platforms as well.) DSpace is built on top of free, open-source tools, such as the Apache Web server, the Tomcat Servlet engine, and the postgreSQL relational database system…

3 Hardware 2 For your convenience, we package the necessary JDBC and other drivers and libraries together with DSpace. This set of tools should run on any UNIX-type OS, such as Linux, HP/UX, or Solaris, and you can substitute other libraries if you need to run on another platform. The system runs on anything from a laptop to a $500K server, but there are a few general recommendations for hardware architectures…

4 Hardware 3 For a research university, DSpace requires a reasonably good server and a decent amount of memory and disk storage. Some examples from the community (not necessarily endorsements): HP Server rx2600, powered by dual 64-bit Intel Itanium 2 processors (900MHz), 2GB RAM, 26 GB internal disk storage. HP StorageWorks Modular SAN Array 1000 (msa1000) with a single high-performance controller. Options include a second controller and, with the addition of two more drive enclosures, controls up to 42 Ultra2, Ultra 3, or Ultra320 SCSI drives. Total capacity can be six terabytes…

5 Hardware 4 SunFire 280R Server, two 900MHz UltraSPARC-III Cu processors, 8MB E-cache, 2GB memory, two 36GB 10,000rpm HH internal FCAL disk drives, DVD, 436- GB, or 12 x 26.4 Gbyte 10K RPM disks, Sun StorEdge A1000 rackmountable w/ 1 HW RAID controller, 24MB std cache. Dell PowerEdge 2650 with dual Xeon processors (2.4GHz), 2GB RAM, 2x73GB scsi disks. One 2.5TB Apple XServe. A DLT tape library to back up the DB/jsps etc. Of course, your mileage (and costs) will vary depending on what you plan to do with the system…
