7.5 million

Source data size per node

20 TB

10 TB

5 TB

CPU or vCPU

32 cores

16 cores

8 cores

RAM

64 GB

32 GB

16 GB

Disk space

30 per cent of source data (up to 6 TB)

15 per cent of source data (up to 3 TB)

7.5 per cent of source data (up to 1.5 TB)

Note: To get higher scalability for content indexing files from backups, you can turn off the generate previews option on the Search Engine node. When generate previews is off, each search node can accommodate approximately twice the number of objects per node. For example, in a large enterprise, this would be approximately 40 TB of source data (about 60 million objects), and the required disk space is 15% of source data (up to 6 TB).

Miscellaneous

Internet Information Services IIS

To install this software, IIS must be enabled on the computer and meet the following requirements:

  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 10.0 (on Windows 2016 only)
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 8.0 or 8.5 (on Windows 2012 only)
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager version 7.5

.NET Core

.NET Core 1.0.7 is required and is automatically installed.

If you cannot start indexing services after deployment, install .NET 2.0.6.

Microsoft Visual C++

The following Redistributable Packages are installed automatically. Multiple versions of the package can be installed on the same computer.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package

Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package
