Which server or server operating system can be used for data storage of Allplan.


Since Allplan 2018 we recommend Windows Server 2016 as the server operating system for pure data storage and since Allplan 2019 also Windows Server 2019, since Allplan 2022 Windows Server 2022.
When selecting the server operating system, please also take into account the interaction with the client operating systems used.
For Windows Server 2012 R2, the "development phase" (fixing bug fixes, etc.) was discontinued in 2018.
However, Microsoft will continue to provide extended support (closing security gaps) until 10.10.2023.
The same applies in this respect for the Windows 8.1 operating system used in the same period.

Due to this fact, it cannot be ruled out that the further development of the Windows 10 operating system and the "technological standstill" of Windows Server 2012 R2 could lead to discrepancies when combining these operating systems at some point.

However, Microsoft should be able to guarantee compatibility for the operating systems used in the future.
Windows Server 2016 - Windows 10
Windows Server 2019 - Windows 10
Windows Server 2022 - Windows 10 and Windows 11 respectively.

If Allplan is also to be installed on the server operating system (e.g. Citrix), the corresponding release in the system requirements must be observed. For Allplan 2016/2017 this is e.g: Windows Server 2012 R2. For higher Allplan versions this is e.g: Windows Server 2016.

Notes on NAS systems:

NAS server are not generally recommended. Because the product variety and quality is very diverse, no effective quality control can take place. We can give no guarantee about operability. In the past we had performance or stability problems, false representations up to the loss of data in some cases.

This phenomenon occurs most in NAS systems of the lower price segment, which have not installed sufficiently fast hardware. If nevertheless a NAS system is to be used we recommend generally a high-performance hardware and the use of the operating system "Windows Storage Server 2012". uses cookies  -  More information
