The goal of this guide is to provide an understanding of system requirements and a practical approach to sizing and configuring your Advanced MES Server to obtain the best performance possible from your Epicor software. It will also help you plan for the future growth of your system. The key to success in getting your hardware sized correctly is to define your application load correctly and then match it with the appropriate hardware resources. Choosing a hardware architecture that can grow as your business and/or application load grows is also important.

It is difficult to accurately provide a hardware recommendation that matches your unique application usage pattern. Many customers find this guide very useful and accurate after they have followed all the steps described in the sections. There are some cases where the provided recommendations may not fully work out in your unique situation. It is therefore difficult to guarantee or imply that the hardware purchased using this hardware sizing guide will solve your unique business requirements. To improve the odds of success, we highly recommend that you work with Encompass consultants and implement their hardware sizing recommendations.
