Hardware Specifications for the CommServe Server

The following hardware requirements are for CommServe servers that are installed on either physical computers or virtual machines, with dedicated resources for the VMs. For more information about system requirements, see System Requirements for CommServe. For information on performance tuning and scalability for your CommCell environment, see Best Practices for the CommCell Environment.

Definitions

  • Servers are multi-user platforms such as file servers, application servers, or hypervisor hosts.
  • Laptops are single end-user systems such as laptops or desktops with installed Commvault software.
  • You can have a combination of servers, virtual machines, and laptops in a single CommCell environment. The total workload must equal the maximum number of servers, per CommCell environment type (Extra Large, Large, Medium, or Small). The workload equivalent for each entity is as follows:
    • Server: 1
    • Virtual Machine: 0.5
    • Laptops: 0.2

    For example, in a medium size CommCell environment, you can have 250 servers, 250 virtual machines (0.5 * 250 = 125 servers), and 625 laptops (0.2 * 625 = 125 servers), which equals a total of 500 servers (the maximum number of servers allowed in a medium size CommCell environment).
