Preparing the Hardware and Planning Topologies

This topic is part of Planning Your Siebel Deployment.

Verify that the hardware that you have chosen meets all of the requirements for running your Siebel Business Applications as well as the required third-party software. Verify also that the hardware is able to support the RDBMS and the Siebel database, the Siebel File System, Siebel Gateway Name Server, Siebel Server, and other Siebel modules. Also plan to support Siebel Tools developer workstation computers and Siebel Mobile Web Client computers, where applicable.

Consider running specialized components on dedicated computers. Whether you do so depends on considerations that include available resources, overall load, performance, security, and so on.

In general, it is assumed that, for security purposes, your computer resources are not shared between Siebel CRM and other applications or systems that are not related to supporting your Siebel CRM deployment.

Record the computer names and installation directory names that you decide on in your copy of the worksheet in Siebel Deployment Planning Worksheet.
