Determining the recommended architecture sizing for your network infrastructure is essential to receiving and maintaining optimal performance. Learn more about how sizing requirements for servers, consoles, and componenets for deployments of more than 50,000 devices, and up to 100,000.

Use the table to determine the sizing requirements for a deployment of more than 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 might need to tweak the numbers to accommodate your specific deployment. Contact Workspace ONE support if you require extra assistance.

Additional notes to consider:

  • If your deployment uses a shared database, you must ensure that the database optimizations in this guide do not adversely affect the other running DB instances. If you cannot ensure this, use a dedicated DB server.

  • 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 can 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.

** 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).


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