FileWave Server System Requirements

As of January 2023 v14.10.2, the below are supported for running FileWave Server, but for updated information, always consult the specific release on the Downloads Page. The FileWave Server can also be installed on a Virtual Machine.

  • macOS 12, 13 (Intel and Apple Silicon)

  • Linux CentOS 7.9 x86_64

The minimum general guidance on CPU / RAM / Network / Storage is:

  • CPU: For physical hardware use, at least the equivalent of an Intel Core i5 or Apple M1. For virtual hardware, use at least 2 virtual processors.

  • RAM: Use a minimum of 8Gb of RAM with 16Gb recommended.

  • Network: At least 1Gb network connection.

  • Storage: 1Tb is a recommended minimum, but this will depend highly on OS updates and Filesets as well as if Windows Imaging is in use.

Make sure you have enough space on your hard disk to store the cached Filesets for your FileWave Clients.
