Global Workshare Configuration (GWC) might require a separate server for distribution for large projects.

  • Intel Xeon® 5600 Series or better (64-bit instruction set, not Itanium®)

  • 16 GB to 64 GB or greater RAM depending on project size

  • For hard drive size, see Smart 3D Project Hardware Sizing Recommendations

  • Backup system for server

  • Access to DVD drive, either locally or through a network connection

  • 1 GbE or higher network interface for client connections

For small projects, a single server (the hub in a hub and spoke configuration) can act as a publisher, a distributor, and a subscriber all at the same time. For medium projects in a Global Workshare Configuration, the database server can also serve as the distribution server.

For large projects with many sites, use two different servers: one as publisher and subscriber and the other as the distributor. Using a separate server as the distributor helps to reduce the load on the publisher.
