All OER requirements for a given deployment size must be followed when choosing hardware for the separate SQL server. There are only two exceptions to this rule:

  • Since the App Control Server will now reside on a separate machine, the CPU requirements for the SQL Server machine can be reduced by 2 cores for all deployments over 10,000 agents.
  • The SQL Server machine can use any of the following as its operating system.
    • Windows Server 2022
    • Windows Server 2019
    • Windows Server 2016
    • Windows Server 2012 R2
Important: Regardless of whether you use a one-tier or two-tier architecture, the SQL Server machine and its database storage still must be dedicated to App Control.
