Operating System

Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows 8

Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 7.0 or later

For Email Integration: To send email, you need an SMTP server. If you have the ability to send Internet email, you probably already have one of these somewhere.

Remarks

Do not run HRPro Application Server on a server which is also running large enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Sharepoint.

Running IIS on domain controller is not recommended.

If HRPro Web Access is opened to the Internet, proper network infrastructure and security control are required.

Azure App Service is supported except Business Alert functions as Windows Task Scheduler is not available on Azure App Service

 

To use Employee Portal, you need:
  • SQL Server with HRPro database installed on network and is accessible by Employee Portal Server
  • Operating system and software: A 32-bit/64-bit version of Microsoft® Windows® Server™ 2012 Standard or Enterprise Edition with Service Pack 2 or later. 
  • Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) 6.0 or later
  • Browser Supported: IE 9,10+ Firefox 3.6+, Chrome 12+ on Windows, Firefox 3.6+, Safari 4+ on Mac 10.5.7+
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 (should be supplied by Windows Server)
  • ASP.NET
  • For Email Integration: To send email, you need an SMTP server. If you have the ability to send Internet email, you probably already have one of these somewhere. 
  • Server Hardware: Most modern Intel servers will be fine. We recommend 2 GB of memory for optimal performance. Do not run Employee Portal on a server which is also running large enterprise applications such as Microsoft Exchange or Microsoft Sharepoint.
  • Running IIS on domain controller is not recommended.
  • If Employee Portal is opened to the Internet, proper network infrastructure and security control are required.
Recommendation of an all-in-one (application server + database server + web server) server:
  • CPU of i3/5/7 or Xeon, 16GB RAM, 100GB Hard Disk space, preferably with 2 hard disk in RAID-1 (disk mirroring) setting. 
  • Windows Server License Required: Windows Server of latest or 2nd latest version (64-bit) 
  • Database Server License Required: No (just the free Microsoft SQL Server Express or Standard Edition of latest or 2nd latest version)
Recommendation for 3 separate servers if budget allows for best performance as shown in HRPro Network Diagram

     1. Database Server 
Processor: 2GHz
Memory: 8GB 
Hard Disk space: 100GB - 200GB

     2. Application Server (for Web Client)
Processor: 2GHz 
Memory: 8GB 
Hard Disk space: min. 100GB
    
    
3. Employee Portal Application Server
Processor: 2GHz 
Memory: 8GB 
Hard Disk space: min. 100GB
