Notices


Supported Operating System Editions

Workstation operating systems designed for home consumer use (for example, Home editions for Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10) should not be used in a business environment and are not supported.

Data Storage Requirements and Usage

EventMaster will use 500 MB of hard drive space for the initial install to your server. Any information you create or save in EventMaster will increase the size of the required permanent storage. Depending on the size and scope of the data you store in EventMaster, an increase of 100 to 500+ MB in database size should be expected each year.

Virtual Machines (Performance Considerations)

EventMaster has been tested to run the database server in a Virtual Server and EventMaster works as expected in that environment.
