This is an article for those who are not yet familiar with 1C software products. It describes the capabilities of the 1C technological platform and where this platform fits in among similar software products.
What does 1C produce?
I think the first thing the general public associates with us is the popular game series IL-2 Sturmovik. However, the 1C product range extends far beyond this series.
Deploying 100-users 1C:DocFlow solution in Vietnam International Bank (VIB) we had to choose servers hardware characteristics for the system. We used the official 1C recommendations that can be find in this tech article. The main idea behind the article is that we can extrapolate the hardware component utilization of some live system (called Model) to our system, assuming that the model system users utilize the hardware components to the same extent as our users will.
One of the most important issues solved for Vietnam International Bank (VIB) was severe performance insufficiency reported by everyone who tried to use the system during its acceptance testing. Literally every user action (like opening a form or refreshing a list) used to take a few seconds while the more massive operations (like posting a heavy document) could take up to 30 seconds.
