EASA is an enterprise business software suite that encapsulates a customer's domain-specific knowledge and computational expertise within a network application called an EASAP (short for EASA APPLICATION).
An EASAP provides a simple, straightforward and flexible user interface which insulates the User from the complexity of the underlying software.
An EASAP may recruit 'live' Excel spreadsheets, batch programs, database operations or other processing software to complete a task.
Below is a recommended hardware specification for a machine configured as a combined EASAP/Excel Server that supports 20-40 Excel processes. Two or more of these may be networked together with a lower spec EASA Server to form a scalable cluster (above schematic).
will gain performance from,
The above is a general suggestion. An EASAP will run on a system with fewer resources, though a larger cluster of machines may become necessary if User load increases.
While EASA's hardware requirements are CPU/chipset vendor agnostic, past experience has demonstrated excellent performance using Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology. Where EASA is installed on an Intel® HT architecture, Hyper-Threading should be enabled.
