We are in the process of designing a database system with the following
1. A central server will contain the database records numbering upto
500,000. The records will contain personal information (text only)
indexed by say Soc. Sec. Number.
2. Data entry will be through PCs connected to the server over a LAN.
3. Data access will be through PCs connected through a modem. We expect
about 1000 accesses per day with upto 50 concurrent accesses.
We are looking for some information on hardware reqmts. for the server,
database software with such access capabilities, as well as ideas for the
data access software (i.e. dial-up, login, access, security and disconnect),
also redundancy and fault tolerance for the server.
Thanks in advance.
