Client Hardware

  • 1.8 GHz Pentium-class processor (or higher)
  • 250Mb of free Memory †
  • 50Mb free hard disk space ‡

† The memory required by the Paribus Discovery application may vary and require additional memory based upon the size of the data to be processed.

‡ The disk space required is for the Paribus Discovery product installation only – Paribus Control Databases will require additional disk space upon the SQL Server.

  • Windows 7
  • Windows Vista

Required Software Components

system requirementsMicrosoft SQL Server Support

Paribus Discovery requires the support of Microsoft SQL Server for hosting its application control database (Paribus Control Database). This can be installed locally upon the Paribus client workstation, or centrally upon a database server. If you already have an existing installation of Microsoft SQL Server, then this may also be used providing it is one of the supported versions. The following versions of Microsoft SQL Server are supported:

  • SQL Server 2014
  • SQL Server 2012
  • SQL Server 2008 R2
  • SQL Server 2008
  • SQL Server 2008 Express

Publicly available versions of Microsoft SQL Server are also available – see here.

†   There is likely to be a reduction in Paribus’ operational performance when using SQL Express, due to the resource limitations imposed by this cut-down platform (such as max CPU, memory and DB size).
