  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 x86-64
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2012 x86-64

2 cores and 4 GB RAM  


In a production environment, the minimum requirement would be 8 cores and 16 GB RAM for handling a 50-GB to 100-GB volume of data and one to four users.

Disk space

50 GB including operating system (for installing the product)

225 GB (for installing the product + indexing 20 GB data per day with a default retention period of 7 days)

For example, to index 20 GB of data per day with a default retention period of 7 days, you require 20 * 7 * 1.25 + 50 = 225 GB disk space. For more information, see Variables that affect sizing and scalability.
