We are currently 4 in our workplace using solidedge sT9. Our shared files are located on one of the 4 PCs .
An -Intel Xeon CPU W3550 @ 3.07GHz
-20 Go RAM
-The three other pcs ares the same but with less RAM (12 go).
-Total files shared as of today. 27 314 files- 733 folders for 15.3 Go.
-Largest typical assemby is around 7 Mo with 1000 files/parts
We are experimenting slow down and are trying to find the bottleneck.
Setting up the first PC as the server was a temporary solution and now we have to make a switch and don't want to spend money on a machine to big that we don't need.
According to other topics a NAS seems to be a good solution but mayby just another PC used just for this would work to.
What would you recommend as a cost effective solution and/or what is your server/workstation setup?
We did receive a quote and it added up to 10 000 $!!! Thas why we are asking for advice of professionals who actually work with 3d CAD.
