Priority Dispatch System Software Requirements
AQUA® Ascent, ProQA® Paramount, & XLerator® Server

As with any software, listed below is the minimum for AQUA Ascent, ProQA Paramount, and XLerator Server to run, this is in addition to the minimum required by the operating system. If other software is running at the same time, such as a CAD system or database software (SQL Server) the requirements will increase accordingly.

We strongly recommend that our software is not installed on the same server where your CAD software resides, this will allow ProQA to continue to function if the CAD Server goes offline.

Note:XLerator™ Server is packaged with Firebird Server, which is the only database software supported by AQUA versions prior to AQUA Ascent (AQUA v7.0).

ProQA Paramount supports Firebird and SQL Server 2014 or 2016. We highly recommend that agencies with more than four Paramount positions use SQL to store the databases. XLerator Server is still required for license management.

Please be aware that agency in-house support is needed for SQL Server databases.

XLerator Server is packaged with a Firebird Server; if an agency prefers they can use a SQL (2014 or higher), AQUA versions prior to AQUA Ascent only supports Firebird server. Please be aware that in-house support is needed for SQL.
