MediaBeacon System Requirements - 2019.1.pdf

Hardware

The following are the minimum requirements for MediaBeacon on a distributed system configuration with roughly 500k assets and about 200 concurrent users. MediaBeacon requires high throughput and low latency connections of no more than 1500ms for database access, 1000ms for disk access, and 5ms for connections to distributed components. These are minimum requirements, so hardware capabilities can be increased as needed.

Hardware recommendations for the production, staging, and development environments in a distributed setup are:
