We have moved to a new documentation platform. This section is no longer supported. For the up-to-date information, see System requirements.

General tips

  • Make sure that your computer meets the system requirements and all the preconditions are fulfilled.
  • Make sure you have Administrator permissions to install all required components.
  • A Solid State Drive (SSD) will make things faster.

General System Requirements

The below hardware enables you to install Intelligent Automation Cloud Express – Express Business – and run 1 bot concurrently.

8.5 GB*

* That is a minimum disk space to install. Mind that the more bot tasks you build, the more disk space you need. 

To run multiple concurrent bots, you need*:

  • Windows Server: 2012, 2012 R2 or 2016
  • 1 CPU and 2 GB RAM per each bot:
    • E.g., if you want to run 4 bots under the Server + Workstation installation type, you need at least 7 CPU at 2.8 GHz and 14 GB RAM
    • The needed CPU is a combination of your total physical and virtual cores
  • You may need RDS CAL per each bot. Refer to RDS Licensing for Multiple Bots for more details

* To ensure smooth performance, we recommend running no more than 16 bots per Windows Server concurrently.

Refer to the Deployment Diagrams to get more details about possible options.

The number of cores in your CPU depends on the actual number of applications used by each bot. Thus, in case of low load, 16 bots can run on 4 cores (CPU).
