ASPIRE v5 System Requirements

For hardware capacity planning, LTi uses an historical model of database backup size to plan for future growth. This projection is usually configured for 1-, 2-, and 3-year growth, but can be configured depending on individual business requirements.

An initial capacity plan is determined in collaboration with LTi’s Client Services team by the number of accounts (customers, vendors, guarantors, etc.), number of contracts, and number of assets in the system. Capacity planning will also take into consideration the use of the document repository, where documents are stored on the file system of the web service server instead of in the database.

Building upon the minimum limitations below, each client's recommended server setup will be determined during ASPIRE's project implementation.
