Sequence is comprised of three components that operate in a Microsoft Windows-based environment. Components of the system can be arranged to meet specific load requirements andcan also be consolidated with customer-owned equipment and software to leverage their existinginfrastructure, where possible. The system utilizes a combination of a web server, database server, and client software to provide complete functionality.
Sequence Enterprise System Requirements (211.08 kB)
Client workstations and server(s) must be on the local area network. Users maintaining documentation will interact with Sequence via a client/server application (WinSequence/Engineering Clients). WinSequence uses the .NET framework and is written in C#. WinSequence interacts with SQL Server (a version of which can be freely installed) to acquire data and the web server (Microsoft IIS) to acquire images. SQL Server and the Web Server can reside on the same machine. When instructions are deployed electronically, users access read-only versions using Internet Explorer (WebSequence/Browser Clients).
Two components need to be included in the corporate back-up plan. The SQL Server database needs to be backed up. The image repository, which resides in a physical directory on the web server, needs to be backed up as well. For assistance in setting up an appropriate back-up plan, please contact technical support.
Sequence Software uses SQL Server as its database backbone. The software can be installed using an existing license of SQL Server 2005 or 2008. If no license of SQL Server exists, SQL Express 2005 or 2008 can be installed at no charge. SQL Express is a ‘light’ version of SQL Server. It is recommended that SQL Express be used for no more than 20 total users. The requirements below reflect this recommendation.
Microsoft IIS must be installed to run the software.
