In this week’s post, I’d like to address a few important questions pertaining to the hardware specifications required by Enterprise Vault 10, and offer up some info on how it can help with server migrations.
What OS and hardware should I use for Enterprise Vault 10?
I’ve been asked a few times what the minimum OS and hardware specification should be for an EV 10 server. The OS is simple, EV 10 requires at least Windows Server 2008 R2. When it comes to hardware we’ve found that EV10 will continue to provide better performance the more CPU cores and memory you provide (which is great news!)
The minimum for EV 10 is a server with 4 CPU cores running at least 2.8GHz with 8GB RAM, we’re recommending a server with 8 CPU cores running at least 2.8GHz with 16GB RAM.
Does it matter what form factor the CPU cores are packaged? Nope, dual quad core, quad dual core or a single eight core CPU would be fine...
