Server machine requirements

Updated in 2021.1

Requirements for a server computer hosting Alloy Discovery depend on the size of your organization.

Minimum server requirements

When hosting all components on a single machine, the minimum requirements for 10-15 technicians and 1,500 computers would be as follows:

Component Minimum Requirement


2.5 GHz Quad-Core


4 GB

Free hard disk space

10 GB


Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2022.

Only 64-bit versions of Windows are supported.

For additional requirements, see Microsoft .NET Framework 4.8.

NOTE: For testing and evaluation purposes, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, and Windows 11 are supported.

Recommended server requirements

Actual requirements will vary based on a variety of factors such as number of technicians, number of network devices, frequency of audit schedule, amount of end-user ticket submissions, and more.

A rough rule of thumb is that for every additional 500 computers and grouping of 5 technicians we recommend adding 1 GB of RAM and 5 GB of free hard disk space.

Additionally, the software’s components such as the Inventory Server(s) and SQL Server can be installed on separate machines as needed. This will reduce machine requirements.
