Hallo Erik,

Thanks for your list! it hears great for me, also Chat and deep level in dashboard.

We are planing to move our SO Windows to Web variants for our more User on the way. Just one Problem is, most business trips is in far east, China, the connection from user client to our SO DB server in Germany and performance will be slow down, so we use local / remote Travel to get Offline data + transfer data with centre server, hope the travel Modul will be also available in SO Web, otherwise we must still keep some Windows User licenses to get Offline via SO Windows Travel in case bad connection. I know now the connection technology in SO Web 8 is much better then SO 7, just we have no expierence about that.

The other problem is, we have in our Company 3-4 SO Instances and later more from diff. Departments and all instances are server-installed on one crm app Server and one dabase Server, since server costs us monthly by our out-sourceing IT-Support, and this works fine till now in SO Windows.

The Question is, is technical possible to install all SO Web 8 Instances on one Webserver, and which system requirements on server to guarantee same performance as good as in Windows client. We have now 4 * cpu + 6 GB ram on our virtual Web server.

 

Thanks a lot for your suggestion!

Hello Jianchun,

I think you are better of discussing the technical implementation with your technical contact in SuperOffice Germany.

I just have some general comments:

  • If you upgrade from 7.x to 8.x, all users will get the web client included in their licence. This way; all users can choose to use the web client at any time.
  • Offline usage (SuperOffice Travel) is only available on the Windows client
  • It is possible to have all SO.web instances on the same (IIS) server. When it comes to resources, it all depends on number of users and usage. Again: discuss this with your technical contact.

Have a nice day!
