Configure your servers, connectors, and other components for on-premises Workspace ONE UEM deployments of between 50,000 and 100,000 Rugged devices. Learn about how to determine the recommended architecture sizing for your network infrastructure to receive and maintain optimal performance.

Consider the following figures as starting points. You may need to adjust them as you implement different features of the Workspace ONE UEM solution. Transaction frequency, number of concurrent connections, and other metrics affect performance, and you may need to tweak the numbers to accommodate your specific deployment. Due to special sizing and configuration challenges, contact Workspace ONE support for help setting up a Rugged deployment of this size.

Additional notes to consider:

  • Certain SQL versions have a maximum supported RAM limit, so review your SQL version's RAM limitation to ensure that all hardware functions as intended.

  • Load balancing for application servers is provided by the customer.

  • The file storage requirement for reports may affect the amount of hard disk space needed on the Console and Device Services servers, depending on whether you enable caching. See Reports Storage Requirements for more information.

Use the table to determine the sizing requirements for your deployment Rugged devices. The columns are not cumulative – each column contains the exact requirements for the listed number of devices.

UEM console (dedicated)

2 load-balanced application servers, each with: 4 CPU Cores, 8 GB RAM, and 50 GB storage

API Server (dedicated)**

1 application server with 4 CPU cores, 8 GB RAM, and 50 GB storage

Device Services (dedicated)

4 load-balanced application servers, each with: 4 CPU Cores, 8 GB RAM, and 50 GB storage

AWCM Server (dedicated)

1 application server with 4 CPU cores, 8 GB RAM, and 50 GB storage

If your Workspace ONE UEM deployment manages a majority of devices that require AWCM (Android, Windows Desktop, and Rugged devices), you must deploy additional resources. Each AWCM server must have 8 CPU and 8GB RAM per 40,000 devices and active connections. For example, 120,000 Android Devices requires 3 servers with 8CPU and 8GB RAM each.

** If your API server is standalone then the network requirements for the API server is to ensure connectivity to the database and various cloud messaging platforms (APNS, FCM, WNS) over ports 80, 443, 2195, and 2196. All other Workspace ONE UEM services (Console, Device Services, SEG, VMware Tunnel) must be enabled to communicate to the API server over HTTPS (443).

Important:

 For application servers, a 64-bit dual core Intel processor is required.
