Visure Requirements ALM Platform - System Requirements

Visure Requirements Repositories

Visure Requirements repositories are created based on commercial databases.

For high availability and corporate deployments the following databases are currently supported and highly recommended:

  • Microsoft SQL Server: 2005, 2008, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017
  • ORACLE: 10, 11, 12

For smaller deployments, with a relatively small number of items (< 5000 items) and concurrent users (< 5 concurrent users) the following databases are currently supported:

  • SQL Server Express
  • Oracle Database Express

These databases have built-in performance restrictions. Visure highly encourages to review these restrictions before deploying them.

For single users (evaluation and offline use), the following engine is supported:

  • Microsoft Access

The migration between any of these databases is fully supported within Visure Requirements.
