Submitted by Abhishek on Tue, 2012-02-14 16:22

This article intends to showcase the supported platforms which can be used with Savvion Business Manager. This should be helpful for those who wish to decide if Savvion can run on their technology stack. Please note these have been put together for Savvion Business Manager 7.6. Your requirements could vary based on your Savvion version



Having better server hardware definitely helps. Normally you would need at least three boxes for Development, User Acceptance and Production Environment. If you plan to implement clustering your hardware needs might increase. Also note the recommendations below are for a typical production environment. For Development environments you can very well use cheaper and slower machines.


Minimum Requirements

 Recommended By Vendor

BPM Geek recommendation



Pentium IV 1GHz or

UltraSPARC-III 900 MHz

Dual CPU Pentium IV 1GHz & up or

Dual CPU UltraSPARC-III 900 MHz and up

Quad Core Duo Processor 2.66 GHz or better.

Faster is better. Please note your licensing might depend on this





Having more memory will help in getting better server performance

Free disk space


2 GB and above. Depending on the application

server you are using, you may need additional

free disk space.

40 GB if you have the database on the same server

Attachments, Event information etc could fill up really fast. It’s better to have adequate Storage available




CD-ROM or DVD Reader


Virtual Memory
