The Orchestrator server requires a database. For small-scale deployments, you can use the preconfigured Orchestrator database. For better performance in a production environment, use a separate database for Orchestrator.


To ensure efficient CPU and memory usage, consider hosting the Orchestrator database and the Orchestrator server on different machines. Verify that at least 1 GB of free disk space is available on each machine.

For a list of the supported database versions, see VMware Product Interoperability Matrix.
