It’s likely that more robust hardware resources will be required. You may need to purchase these or they may be available within your existing IT infrastructure. TMS Collections requires considerably more server resources than EmbARK, depending in part on the size of the database, number of media files, and number of users. At least one dedicated database server and one dedicated web server will be required, and very large databases may need to divide the load between several servers. It’s critical for the success of the project that adequate server resources are budgeted for and provisioned.

Optionally, you may choose to host with Gallery Systems instead of hosting TMS Collections yourself. This will remove the need to purchase new hardware as you will be hosted on Gallery Systems secure servers.
