Server is supported on desktop computers, stand-alone servers, and virtual machine environments with the following minimum requirements.
|Minimum Requirements Per Server Node||Recommendations for Production Environments Per Server Node (Multi-Node Environment)*|
|CPU||Intel or AMD x86-64 (64-bit)||Intel Xeon E, Xeon W, AMD EPYC 7xx2, AMD Threadripper, or better|
|Number of CPU Cores**||
4 cores (8 logical cores) per node
8+ cores (16+ logical cores) per node
|System Memory||16 GB||32+ GB|
|Recommended Minimum Disk Size||500 GB||1+ TB SSD|
**This table assumes 1 physical core to be equal to 2 logical cores. For more information, please see our licensing definitions page.
Server minimum hardware requirements are defined as the minimum hardware needed to run a stable installation of Alteryx Server. If you don't meet minimum requirements, it puts you at risk of having poor performance and/or having the service shut itself down on any node where the engine runs.
The following minimum hardware requirements are recommended for desired number of concurrent workflows:
Note that the green highlighted line is the minimum recommended configuration. The line showing information for 1 concurrent workflow is helpful for you to understand how much you need to increase resources to add 1 additional job to the existing configuration.
Server optimal performance hardware recommendations are defined as the sweet spot in hardware where Server can complete workflows as efficiently as possible. This is useful to eliminate congestion on busy systems.
The following hardware recommendations are recommended for optimal performance:
*Logical cores are either vCPUs or logical cores within a physical core. The standardization to refer to logical cores is a way of comparing consistently across both physical on-prem servers and virtual servers in the cloud.
