In a production environment, you must deploy vRealize Code Stream on a dedicated appliance.

Do not apply the vRealize Code Stream license on a production vRealize Automation appliance.

When you deploy vRealize Code Stream for production, you can configure a maximum of 1000 pipeline models and run a maximum of 50 concurrent pipelines.

With 6 GB for processing, 8 vCPU, and 32 GB of RAM at the system level, vRealize Code Stream can support a maximum of 250 to 300 concurrent pipeline executions.


You must host the vRealize Automation services on a different appliance. For more information about the deployment of vRealize Automation, see the Reference Architecture for vRealize Automation guide.


Deploying vRealize Code Stream requires the following dedicated appliances:

  • vRealize Code Stream Appliance

    A standalone appliance dedicated for vRealize Code Stream services.

  • vRealize Automation Appliance

    The vRealize Automation deployment can be a single appliance or a load balanced cluster.

    To use vRealize Automation services for provisioning blueprints, you must configure the vRealize Automation appliance.

    For more information about deployment topologies, see the Reference Architecture for vRealize Automation guide.

Hardware Specification

The deployment must be configured with the minimal and required hardware specification. For more information about editing the OVF settings for a virtual machine, see the vSphere Virtual Machine Administration guide.
