NOTE: Minimal hardware requirements depend on number of concurrent users, workload and image types. It is recommended to allocate 20-80% more resources for unusual work load or specific data types.

The requirements for MedDream server, detail instructions, how to install MedDream and verify the MedDream functioning after system installation or restart, are provided in Install Manual. Current section provides the requirements for user workplace and instructions for verifying, that the user can access MedDream functionalities from his workplace.
