from 1,000 to 5,000 clients

In case you are planning to have more than 5,000 managed clients, we highly recommend that you install ESMC Server/MDM on a physical machine running Microsoft Windows Server with Microsoft SQL Server.

The following sizing applies to ESMC VAgentHost Appliance (depending on the number of connected VMs):


1 - 1,000 VMs -> 2 cores, 2 GB RAM


1 - 10,000 VMs -> 4 cores, 8 GB RAM
