  • CAST Imaging is a CPU and RAM intensive application and for that reason, CAST recommends using a dedicated server (physical or virtual) specifically for CAST Imaging. In other words CAST does not recommend installing any other service (whether CAST or third-party) on the same server as CAST Imaging.
  • The installation on Microsoft Windows (non-Docker) will be blocked on machines configured with less than 8GB.
  • For Docker deployments on Microsoft Windows, a minimum of 16GB RAM must be allocated to Docker Desktop.

These items are all provided as Linux based Docker images in the public Docker Hub (.JAR file installs are also provided, however, these are targeted at deployments on Microsoft Windows on one single machine (including the AIP Node and the CAST Storage Service/PostgreSQL instance) i.e. for demo or POC requirements).

It is possible to re-use one of the existing servers dedicated to AIP Core/AIP Node, providing that this is a Windows server, however CAST does recommend a dedicated server where possible.

  • Deploy folder
  • Log files,
  • Extensions folder
  • LISA / LTSA
