System Requirements

The operating system and other software require their own additional system resources. The system requirements described below are only for MyQ solution.

MyQ Central Server mode with integrated Firebird database

MyQ Central Server

1 - 10,000 users

10,001 - 50,000 users

50,001 - 100,000 users

Physical Core*

6

RAM

8GB

12GB

16GB

Valid for a typical user case:

  • Integrated Firebird database - installed automatically.

  • Data Replications from Site servers.

  • User synchronization.

  • Up to 500 Sites (for the Site servers HW requirements, see MyQ Print Server - Site mode) managed by the Central Server (license distribution, user synchronization, and data replication between Central Server and Site servers).

  • Up to 30,000 printers total on MyQ Central Server.

Recommendations

  • Install Windows updates out of the replication or user synchronization time.

  • Always monitor the server performance during peak usage hours and adjust the settings accordingly.

  • Changing the power plan of Windows Server in Control Panel – Hardware – Power Options from Balanced (the default setting) to High performance is recommended to utilize the maximum performance. This may help speed up database operations.

It is possible to install MyQ Central Server and MyQ Site Server on one Server, but it is recommended only for small installations (small Site Server). In this case, the HW requirements for both MyQ Central and MyQ Site Server need to be taken into account.

MyQ Central Server mode with an external MS SQL database

*number of physical cores with 3,5GHz frequency (calculated with AMD Ryzen Threadripper 1920X 3,5GHz).

Valid for a typical user case:

  • External MS SQL database used.

  • Data Replications from Site servers.

  • User synchronization .

  • Up to 500 Sites (for the Site servers HW requirements, see MyQ Print Server - Site mode) managed by the Central Server (license distribution, user synchronization, and data replication between Central Server and Site servers).

  • Up to 30,000 printers total on MyQ Central Server.

Recommendations

  • Install Windows updates out of the replication or user synchronization time.

  • Always monitor the server performance during peak usage hours and adjust the settings accordingly.

  • Changing the power plan of Windows Server in Control Panel – Hardware – Power Options from Balanced (the default setting) to High performance is recommended to utilize the maximum performance. This may help speed up database operations.

Operating System

Windows Server 2012/ 2012 R2/ 2016/ 2019/2022, with all the latest updates; only 64bit OS supported.
Windows 8.1/10/11 **, with all the latest updates; only 64bit OS supported. Be aware of the connection limit of up to 20 clients (Windows EULA).

**For the trouble-free running of the machine, it is strongly recommended using a server operating system.

Additional software required

Microsoft .NET Core 6.0 is installed automatically at the beginning of the MyQ installation. If the installation fails, the installer cannot proceed, and the installation is terminated. In such cases, .NET Core 6.0 has to be manually installed prior to the MyQ installation.

Microsoft .NET Framework is not automatically installed and needs to be installed prior to running the MyQ installation.

Storage sizing

The MyQ Central Server installation files are approximately 300MB.

Minimum 10GB dedicated disk for MyQ Data storage (jobs, main database and log database) is recommended; see the below tables for more details.

Storage performance
  • minimum 100 IOPS required.

  • RAID data storage supported.

Database

Web browser

  • Microsoft Edge 91 or higher (Recommended)

  • Google Chrome 91 or higher

  • Mozilla Firefox 91 or higher

https://www.digicert.com/kb/digicert-root-certificates.htm#roots.
It should be included by default in the latest updated Windows versions.
Supported Public Key Infrastructure for asymmetric cryptography.

Limitations:

  • To make sure that the MyQ system runs smoothly, you need to set an exception for MyQ in your antivirus setup.

  • MyQ should not be installed on a Domain Controller.

MyQ installation in Private Cloud

MyQ can also be installed in Private Cloud. For requirements and further details, see Installation in Private Cloud.
