Evaluation Installation

If you want to evaluate the new functionality and features introduced in version 8 before performing the upgrade, use the Evaluation installation. This way you can quickly install all product’s components on a single computer without having to spend your time on a detailed configuration.

The Evaluation Installation installs the Microsoft SQL Server 2017 Express, installs Alloy Discovery 8, and creates an Alloy Discovery 8 database.

INFO: In order to avoid affecting your production servers, we recommend that you perform the Evaluation Installation on a separate computer dedicated to testing, or on a virtual machine.
