How to harness the power

System Requirements

Titan Content Management / Portal is built using Microsoft .Net 4.5.2 and Microsoft SQL (Express through Enterprise).

Dedicated vs. Shared Servers

Titan peacefully co-exists with other applications on a shared server. If you expect a lot of traffic, a dedicated server is suggested. If you plan to host Titan internally on your company's existing hardware, you are free to use hosting server(s) for any other purpose. Of course, dedicated servers are always best, but it is not a requirement.


  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2 or 2008 R2, 64-bit edition only
  • Microsoft SQL 2014 or 2008 R2, 64-bit
  • Microsoft IIS 8.5, 8.0, 7.5 or 7.0
  • Microsoft .Net 4.5.2
  • Cloud Options:  Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, and others compatible with Microsoft Server Software


  • 64-bit 4 cores for small instances (fewer than 10,000 visits/day)
  • 64-bit 8 cores for medium instances (between 10,000 to 100,000 visits/day)

  • 16G RAM (fewer than 10,000 visits/day)
  • 24G RAM (between 10,000 to 100,000 visits/day)
  • 300Gb Disk Space. We recommend a RAID10 disk array.
  • 1GB network interface cards 

Server Configurations

Titan's Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) supports separating web, application, and database services into separate environments, and combining them into one, two, or three server configurations.  

Load Balancing, Redundancy, and Server Farms 

We fully support Load Balanced environments and Server Farms for mission critical websites.  We also support mirror servers, backup / standby servers, and other configurations intended to provide fault tolerant redundancy. We also support Microsoft SQL clusters. While cluster services can be used for the Web and Application layer, we recommend using hardware load balancing to provide the best performance and reliability.

Cloud Hosting 

We fully support Cloud Hosting on all Azure platform options (except for those offering less than 8G of RAM and two processors.)
