System Requirements

Deployment Automation will run on Windows and UNIX-based systems.

While the minimum requirements provided are sufficient for an evaluation, you must use server-class machines for production deployments.

The Deployment Automation server uses threading and takes advantage of any additional CPU cores assigned to it. A small to midrange server with 2 to 4 multi-core CPUs is ideal. However, because you can move an existing Deployment Automation server installation to a new machine, starting small and scaling as needed is a viable strategy. The memory available to the application tier should also be increased from the default 256 MB to approximately 1 GB.

Specific requirements are given in the following topics:
