What are the requirements for installing and running a network-based Shared Insight Cache server?


The network-based Shared Insight Cache (SIC) server stores its cached information in main system memory in order to improve performance of client lookups. A SIC server installed to a 32-bit version of Windows is limited to approximately 100 simultaneous client connections. It is best practice to install SIC on a 64-bit Windows platform if it will be utilized by 100 or more clients.
