While our test management tool TestRail is already a very fast and secure web application out of the box, there are a few things you can do to optimize and secure a TestRail installation. Some things are easier to do (such as enabling SSL encryption), while others (such as moving TestRail to a dedicated server) are more difficult to implement.
Most teams install and use TestRail on a shared application server or in a virtual machine. This definitely makes sense and such a setup is usually sufficient for most teams and scenarios. It’s recommended to optimize such installations nonetheless as there are a few “low hanging fruits” that can make a big difference with relative small effort (such as enabling HTTP compression on your web server). Larger installations benefit from a dedicated server with optimized hardware specifications.
To have all performance and security related installation recommendations in one place, we decided to write and publish the following articles. Just let us know in case you have any questions or additional suggestions on how to optimize a web application server.
