Computer for BIMcloud Server

Narska
Enthusiast

I just bought a mac mini, so I have a dedicated always-on (never sleeps) computer to host my company's BIMcloud basic server.

 

I'm really happy with the setup.

 

What do you use to host your server?

 

I've had a computer burn a hard drive out after two years of nonstop hosting of my BIM server. Has anyone experienced this?

We use a 2013 MacPro, (the dustbin one) which has been absolutely fine and to be honest, probably overkill. It has just been vintaged so we are looking to upgrade it to a Mac Studio.

Is it a M1 Mac mini?

I have had lot of BIMcloud basic corruptions where I have had to reinstall it.

Yes, M1 mini, that's good to know. Have you isolated where the issues are coming from?

Not really, but has to do with corruption of some database files
