One-time fee for self-hosted agencies

We offer an ownership option for purchasing SAM, which enables you to make a one-time investment and have a perpetual license. Upgrades to SAM are available with Software Assurance, an optional, annual subscription. 

Financing options are available for 12 and 24 month terms. Lease to own options are available if you choose to host with Inreach Solutions, then later decide ownership is better for your organization.

We are proud to provide both Hosting and Ownership solutions to help you use SAM.

SAM Self - Hosting Requirements

Although its possible to host SAM on a single server, we strongly recommend using a web-server for the front-end and a database server for the back-end, for maximum security.

Web Server Minimum Requirements

  • Quad-Core 2Ghz Processor
  • 4 Gigs of RAM
  • 2 TB storage in a mirrored RAID (documents are in native format on the web-server)
  • 2 NIC Interfaces (1 for web and 1 for private access to db server)
  • Windows Server 2008 (standard or higher)

Database Server Minimum Requirements

  • Quad-Core 2Ghz Processor
  • 12 Gigs of RAM
  • 200 GB storage in a mirrored RAID
  • Windows Server 2008 (standard or higher)


RAID 10 (1+0) or 5 is recommend as it is supposed to greatly increase the performance of the DB in "reads", which is most of the DB activity.


Web-Server should be in a DMZ (in its own domain), and only have ports 80 (HTTP), 443 (HTTPS), and 3389 (RDP) open in the Windows Firewall. Database Server should be on a private LAN, and only have ports 1433 (SQL) and 3389 (RDP) open.

SAM Files

SAM code files take up less than 1GB of space, and exact size depends on the number of forms in your SAM site. SAM Database is also less than 1GB at start.
