Visure Requirements ALM Platform – System Requirements

Visure Requirements ALM Repositories

The commercial open databases supported by Visure Requirements ALM are the following:

  • Microsoft SQL Server:2008, 2012, 2014,2016
  • ORACLE: 10, 11, 12C,18C
  • Microsoft Access: 2007, 2010 (not supported for production environments)

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.

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

Visure Requirements ALM License Server

The installation of the Visure License Server is required only if floatinglicenses are used. Only one Visure License Server installation will be necessary for all Visure Requirements ALM users.

The Visure License Server must be installed in a Windows Server 2008 (32 or 64-bit), Windows Server 2012 (32 or 64-bit), Windows Server 2016 (32 or 64-bit), Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit) or Windows 8 (32 or 64-bit) or Windows 10 (32 or 64 bit) with Administration rights.

By default Visure License Server uses port  6200(this can be changed) for communication with client installations, so this port is need to be opened.

Communication Requirements

1 GB/10 GB LAN between the VR clients and the Visure repository. There must be bidirectional communication via TCP/IP between the License Server and the VR clients. For further details on how to install Visure Requirements, please review Visure Requirements ALM System Requirements.
For medium-to-large deployments, a client virtualization solution is recommended. Please contact us to discuss various possibilities.
