When you deploy the ScoreExpress application for your competition, you want to make sure that you have a setup which runs stable and reliably.
In the pages below we will consider each aspect of the setup of a complete scoring system taking into account following considerations:
- The system needs to be fast enough and run stable to ensure a smooth competition.
- You will want to have a secured system, in order to prevent unauthorized persons to gain access to the system.
- Besides technical capabilities of the system itself, you want to have a system that is easy to set up, especially if you want a system that is used for many competitions and needs to be setup by people who are not necessarily technical specialists.
Besides describing the requirements for the system, we will also present some examples of equipment that we have been using for competition setups, which have served us well. As a general advice for buying hardware for the scoring system; we propose to stick to professional hardware options rather than consumer hardware. Even if consumer hardware might list all the required features on the box, in general it is our experience that a professional device will offer more reliability and capacity for a small price increment.
