Moveware operates successfully on a wide array of network infrastructures and we can assist you in determining the suitability of existing hardware and communications. The final specification will depend on a number of factors, including other required functions of the Server, PCs and network. Many of our clients are increasingly deciding to operate in a Terminal Server environment, which can have the added benefits of reducing administration costs and allowing remote branches and users to log in remotely over WAN communications of sufficient bandwidth. As a guide, the suggested minimum hardware specifications are:

MinimumSingle combined Database Server, File Server and Remote Desktop Session Host
RecommendedAdditional Server or Backup Drive for backups of Database and File Store
Operating System
RecommendedWindows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition (64-bit)
Minimum2 Cores for OS

8GB RAM for Database
Additional 500MB per RDS User
Minimum200GB free space on C Drive for Application, Database, Backups and File Store
Recommended10GB free space on C Drive
Separate SSD for Database (min 128GB)
Separate SSD for Backups and File Store (min 256GB)

Client Workstations

  • Microsoft Windows 8™
  • 2 Core processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • Hard disk with at least 10GB free
  • 16-bit colour, 1600x900 screen resolution

Note: The above specifications are a minimum only.
The database server and workstations must be either On-Premises or On-Cloud. Putting database server and workstations on different network locations, e.g. workstations On-Premise and database server On-Cloud, could lead to high latency and cause Moveware to be unusable.
Moveware is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the following operating systems:
  • Microsoft Windows Server™ 2012 / 2012R2 editions
  • Microsoft Windows Server™ 2016 / 2016R2 editions
  • Microsoft Windows Server™ 2019 / 2019R2 editions (not officially supported)
  • Microsoft Windows 8™ and 8.1™ or above
  • Microsoft Windows 10 Pro or above
Moveware is not compatible with Windows 8™ RT or Windows 8.1™ RT


Minimum 100BaseT Ethernet network that supports TCP/IP networking protocols.

Internet bandwidth for Remote Desktop Sessions

Bandwidth requirements depend on many factors: which operating system is running on the Terminal Server, which applications are running on the Terminal Server, the operating system of the remote computer, how much printing is performed etc.

We recommend a minimum figure of 100kbps to 200kbps per remote desktop session, making sure that remote desktop connection settings are optimised accordingly.

Remote Access

In order for Moveware to install, maintain and support a company’s system, a broadband Internet connection to the Moveware Database Server is required. A Windows user account, with at least local Administrator access on the server and preferably Domain Administrator Access (if applicable), is required to correctly install Moveware. This is also required to install, maintain and support Moveware’s Web Services features. Reliable, on-demand remote access is also needed. Examples are Microsoft Terminal Server or Windows Remote Desktop connection.

These products are to be supplied by the client.


To facilitate effective backups, a CD backup, tape backup, or removable drive solution such as an external USB drive, is recommended.

As part of the implementation, Moveware will configure a scheduled backup of the running database that can be programmed as required, and also copied to another location on the company network.


Moveware prints to virtually any windows printer. It allows print options to be customized for each user, so that different print jobs can be sent to different printers. We recommend the use of network printers rather than printers attached to client PCs. For remote printing we recommend using IP printing.

As part of the implementation, Moveware installs its own PDF generator called Moveware PDF. This is a licensed version of the popular CutePDF software PDF printer.
