Requirements VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle VMware Identity Manager VMware Aria Automation
Medium Profile Extra Large Profile
Total Disk Size 78 GB 100 GB 246 GB (Only for single node Installation) 246 GB (Only for single node Installation)
Virtual CPU 2 8 12 24
Memory/RAM Size 6 GB 16 GB 54 GB 96 GB
Maximum Network Latency 5 ms between each cluster node 5 ms between each cluster node
Maximum Storage Latency 20 ms for each disk IO operation from any VMware Aria Automation node 20 ms for each disk IO operation from any VMware Aria Automation node
Note: The system requirements for VMware Aria Automation are for single node environments. For 3 node HA VMware Aria Automation environments, multiply the requirement by 3.

Automation Orchestrator Considerations

Scaling the heap memory of the Automation Orchestrator Appliance is only applicable for standalone Automation Orchestrator instances and is not supported for embedded Automation Orchestrator instances in VMware Aria Automation.

Note: To modify the heap memory of an embedded Automation Orchestrator instance, you must increase the VMware Aria Automation profile size through the VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle.

Hardware Requirements

Specifications for Workspace ONE Access are based on the number of users in the directories. For more information, see System and Network Configurations Requirements.

Note: To learn more about the hardware resizing of Workspace ONE Access through VMware Aria Suite Lifecycle, see Resize hardware resources deployed for VMware Lifecycle Manager.

Load Balancer Requirements

The Load Balancing guide includes information on these configurations:

  • NSX LB
  • F5 LB
  • Citrix NetScaler LB

For more information, see Aria Automation Load Balancing.

Network Requirements

VMware Aria Automation requires:
  • Single, static IPv4 and Network Address
  • Reachable DNS server set manually
  • Valid, Fully qualified domain name, set manually that can be resolved both forward and in reverse through the DNS server

Ports and Protocols Requirements

VMware Aria Automation is accessed over port 443. The 443 port is secured with a self-signed certificate that is generated during the installation. When using an external load balancer, it must be set up to balance on port 443. The table provides an overview of the Ports and Port number used for VMware Aria Automation.
