This document is designed to provide a high level overview of the hardware required to run Resort Data Processing software. For more information on Resort Data Processing hardware considerations please contact Stephen White, firstname.lastname@example.org. RDP will work with you to determine if any new equipment is required for your site. Many of our customers find their existing hardware is fine. If additional hardware is required we will work with the hardware vendor of your choice to make sure you purchase the correct equipment, but not overspend on items that are not required. For additional information, review the RDP Technology Overview page.
RDP software can either be hosted in the Cloud or used on your own hardware. This document details the requirements for hardware if you elect to use your own equipment, including:
- Data Server
- Internet Reservation Module Server (IRM.Net or RDP-API)
- Individual Workstations (clients)
The Data Server and IRM.Net Server can be located at the property or at a remote location, but they both must be at the same location. It is possible to use virtual servers or separate physical servers for the data server and the IRM server. Separate physical servers provide an increased level of security and performance, but are not required. Workstations can be located at the property or at a remote location. Thin clients using Citrix or Windows Terminal Server are supported.
For an overview of both hosted and on premise models, please visit the RDP Pricing page.
