Various installation options meet the requirements of a modern IT infrastructure.

08 November 2016: Christoph Dietrich & Markus Pfirsching

A modern IT infrastructure and innovative standardisation options lead to a wide range of requirements customers have to meet. This is the reason why many Q-DAS customers ask for an individual type of installation.

In order to be able to decide which type of installation is the most suitable one for you and whether you need any customisation, we are going to describe the standard types of installation first.

1) Single installation

A single installation is based on a setup you start on a single computer. Any available program file and configuration is available on this computer after the setup is completed (type A). However, it is still possible to connect this computer to a remote database (Access database in a file share, SQL or Oracle database on a database server) that is not part of this computer (type B).  However, we still refer to this type of installation as a single installation since the configuration database only applies to this very computer.

2) Network (server/client) installation

Network installations are based on a setup installing all data in a central file share. After the setup is completed, this file share contains all associated program files and configurations. Any client installation you are going to install subsequently will apply a common configuration and use the program files available in the central file share (type A). As an alternative, you may save specific files (program exe, DLL files, help files, etc.) locally on the respective client (type B). You may even connect one or several databases (Access database in a file share, SQL or Oracle database on a database server).
