ON PREMISES & IN THE CLOUD

Create and manage your workflows in any environment

Installation of WEBCON BPS on premises

WEBCON BPS provides a high performance workflow engine, external database and scalable logical architecture. That is why our BPM platform can support thousands of users and handle millions of documents and tasks, depending on your company’s needs.

WEBCON BPS can be installed on top of your existing SharePoint environment and does not require any additional machines to run. Below you can find the requirements for two types of ‘from scratch’ installations.

‘All-in-one’ development or testing environment
For the most compact WEBCON BPS ‘all-in-one’ configuration, you can use a single machine added to your company’s Active Directory. The required software components are:

  • Windows Server 2008R2 or newer 
  • SharePoint 2013 Foundation (or Server) or 2016
  • SQL Server 2008R2 (or newer) Express with Advanced Services (The Full Search component is necessary)

Recommended configuration 
Setting up a production environment (suitable for up to 1,000 users) will require the installation of SharePoint and installation of WEBCON BPS on top of it.
In most cases this means two separate machines. One for the application (SharePoint) and a separate database server (MS SQL) in accordance with the best practices for SharePoint installations. WEBCON BPS installs as a solution for SharePoint and creates its own databases, typically on the same server you use to host SharePoint’s DBs.

Recommended configuration for a high workload scenario
The WEBCON BPS scalable architecture enables you to create
an environment that efficiently handles tens of thousands of end users.
Setting up a high workload scenario requires thoughtful infrastructure planning, although the most basic guidelines have been presented below:

Recommended configuration for WEBCON BPS installation up to 1,000 users.

  • Increase the number of SharePoint front-ends to improve the number of web browser client requests that your system can handle. It is recommended
    to have at least one SharePoint front-end for every 5,000 users.
  • Improve SQL server performance and efficiency by adding more RAM, increasing processing power, and most importantly, improving the performance
    of your disk array (e.g. by using a larger number of more efficient disks). Make sure to configure WEBCON BPS to allocate fast disks for metadata and slower disks that offer better price-to-space performance for file attachments.

WEBCON BPS in the Microsoft Azure Cloud

WEBCON BPS can be hosted in the Azure Cloud and/or integrated with Microsoft’s Office 365 SharePoint online services.

Depending on your needs, WEBCON BPS can be scaled-up to support tens of thousands of users.

There are many possible scenarios for WEBCON BPS configurations in the Azure Cloud, depending on your company’s current infrastructure.

Requirements for installing WEBCON BPS in the Azure Cloud are similar to on-premises installation:

  • Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2013 or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013/2016
  • MS SQL Server 2008 R2 or higher (full text search mode required)
  • Active Directory environment

Configuration scheme for cloud-only organizations.
