Single Machine Hardware Requirements

In the single machine deployment model, the same machine has both Workbench and the BI xPress database installed. Workbench is the program that contains BI xPress and its associated assemblies while the BI xPress database is hosted within a SQL Server Instance.

The following memory and processor requirements apply to all editions of BI xPress:






4 GB

At least 8 GB and should be increased as the BIxPress database size increases to ensure optimal performance

Processor Speed

1.4 GHz

2.0 GHz or faster

Processor Type

Not Applicable

  AMD Opteron

  AMD Athlon 64

  Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support

  Intel Pentium IV with EM64T support

Important Note

Hardware requirements can vary based on workloads and other processes.

Running BI xPress on a virtual machine will be slower than running natively because of the overhead of virtualization.
