Which Hardware do you use? // Mendix Pro on Windows Server 2016

0
Hi, With the time my projects slowly become a bit bigger. However, I have the impression that my hardware with Mendix reaches its limits, especially when Teams is also running at the same time.   HP EliteBook 745 G6 AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 3500U w/ Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx, 2100 MHz 16,0 GB RAM   What hardware do you use and what is your experience? Another question: Is someone of experienced with Windows 2016 and Mendix Studio? Has someone ever tested it out, since it’s not official supported?

Mine is over a year and a half. Lenovo Ideapad 330S. It holds 2 256GB SSD disks, one or software one for content. It originally contained only 8GB and that was only just enough. Every now and then it was too little. Therefor I added 4GB, to get to the max for this laptop.

Now it is running smoothly again.

Do take into account that for performance of your Mendix IDE, project size does matter. See Jim's recent post: https://forum.mendix.com/link/questions/100515

Tjark,

I have a Dell Laptop that is around 2 years old.  I will paste specs below.  In my experience, having a solid state drive makes a significant different.  My laptop has a 256GB solid state drive.  Also, I don’t run Teams – but I do run Slack.  I am able to be very productive with this laptop.

Hope that helps,

Mike

Jap, the growing project size is definitly a factor. From the discussion in the other thread I read, that even more CPU does not solve the problem. :-(

I’m running on a Mac, but using Windows 10 under Parallels for Mendix development work.

A solid state drive and plenty of memory make a difference, and running under Parallels I can assign a fixed number of cores and limit memory to keep the Mac responsive.
