The following indications are minimum requirements to run readyLIMS® with 5 users. readyLIMS® was developed to support a large number of users as well. In this case, a cluster of several servers can be more usefull instead of a single high-performance server.  readyLIMS® can also be operated on virtualized systems. Depending on the requirements, the database can be operated on an independant database server as well.
