Hardware requirements

Recommended minimum hardware requirements for the machine used to define test data rules and workflows and execute those rules are the following: 8 cores CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 150GB of disk storage (ideally SSD or equivalent).

For a machine where server-side components required to host BizDataX's web UI are installed, minimal requirements are the following: 4 core CPU, 16GB of RAM, and 100GB of disk space (ideally SSD or equivalent).

Since BizDataX uses parallelism, providing more CPU cores and more RAM can have a positive impact on the overall performance of the system.
