Determining the recommended architecture sizing for your Workspace ONE UEM network infrastructure is essential to receiving and maintaining optimal performance. Learn about the server, console, and component requirements for up to 50,000 devices.

Use the table to determine the sizing requirements for a deployment of up to 50,000 devices. Each column represents the requirements for a deployment up to that number of devices. The columns are not cumulative – each column contains the exact requirements for the listed number of devices.

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. Contact Workspace ONE support if you require extra assistance.

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.
