Representative JTLS Hardware Configuration

The computer processors can be either AMD or Intel. Generally, AMD has a lower cost than Intel, but there is no requirement based on JTLS capabilities.

Computer hardware equipment is continually being improved. This information represents the nominal JTLS requirements. Users are urged to purchase the most capable machines within their budget constraints. Machines with faster processor speeds (greater than 2.8 GHz), more memory (greater than 16 GB), and more disk space (greater than 300 GB) are acceptable and encouraged. The end result will be a computer hardware architecture that will be useful well into the future.

If JTLS will be used to support large training exercises, R&A strongly encourages users to purchase a fully functioning backup server. Hardware failures do occur and a backup server is a relatively low cost insurance policy which may be the difference between an unsuccessful end to an exercise and the successful completion of an expensive training event. JTLS has been designed to have all of the processes operate on similar computer systems to make it easy to re-distribute executing processes, when and if a catastrophic hardware failure occurs during a critical training exercise event.
