Minimum Hardware Specification

Server Hardware for a development environment, the minimum RAM requirement for ArcGIS Server is 2 GB. This requirement is based on a typical development server with the following environment:

§ Two cached map services

§ One dynamic map service

§ One locator service

§ One geoprocessing service

§ Geometry service

§ SQL Server Express


For a production environment, hardware minimum requirements are not listed because user and business needs of ArcGIS Server may vary.  These requirements must be considered in determining hardware needs to meet user performance expectations and scalability.  Please refer to the  Infrastructure Performance Considerations and System Design Strategies wiki for assistance in designing a Server infrastructure that would meet your business requirements.
