CEMView Virtualization requirements

Hypervisor Host Requirements:

CEMView is compatible with the following virtualization software (hypervisor) platforms: Hyper-V, VMWare ESX(i), KVM, Xen Server, etc. All vNIC adapters are supported.

Virtual Machine Requirements:

CPU: 4 or more virtual cores are required.

RAM: 4 Gb or more required (8 Gb or more is preferable if the SQL database is running on the same VM)

Disk: 200Gb or more, depends on database size and size of CEMView database archives.

OS: Windows 64-bit OS: Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2, 2016, Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 Professional. Please note that third-party software which might be used by the CEMView (e.g. OPC servers, communication drivers for interface converters, etc.) is also compatible with listed Operating Systems.

Software: Microsoft SQL Server 2014 or 2016 Standard. For the Microsoft SQL Server requirements, please see  https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-CA/library/ms143506.aspx#hwswr

CEMView Licensing:

CEMView in the virtual machine authenticates with an external Nexus License Manager which has to be installed on a physical PC and be available from the CEMView VM via TCP/IP network. Nexus License Manager is a Windows service that can be installed on the VM host server if it is running non-core edition of Hypervisor (Windows Server 2012 or later non-core edition only). One Nexus License Manager service can be used to authenticate multiple virtual machines running CEMView.

Below are Nexus License Manager deployment scenarios:

The CEMView DAHS requires separate virtualization license. Please contact us for more information.
