Privileged Remote Access Virtual Appliance Sizing Guidelines

The following guest VM sizing guidelines should be used to support the BeyondTrust Virtual Appliance.

For up to 20 concurrent users with 1,000 Jump Clients and one concurrent session per user (small), the VMware requirements are:

  • 2 virtual CPUs; 2.5 GHz or better
  • 4 GB memory
  • 24 GB available storage for the operating system
  • 100 GB available storage for logs and recordings

For up to 300 concurrent users with 10,000 Jump Clients and one concurrent session per user (medium), the VMware requirements are:

  • 4 virtual CPUs; 2.5 GHz or better
  • 8 GB memory
  • 24 GB available storage for the operating system
  • 500 GB secondary drive for logs and recordings

For up to 1,000 concurrent users with 25,000 Jump Clients and one concurrent session per user (large), the VMware requirements are:

  • 8 virtual CPUs; 2.5 GHz or better
  • 16 GB memory
  • 24 GB available storage for the operating system
  • 100 GB secondary drive residing in a high performance datastore
  • 1000 GB tertiary drive for logs and recordings

If you anticipate having more than 1,000 concurrent users, please contact BeyondTrust Technical Support at www.beyondtrust.com/support to ensure that the resources allocated will meet your needs.

Because the amount of data recorded for any given session varies drastically based on the type of data collected, the length of the session, and so forth, it is impossible to define how much storage space is needed to save data for a certain number of days. If your business must abide by data retention guidelines, BeyondTrust recommends either estimating the amount of space needed based on observation of your own data stores or using the BeyondTrust API or Integration Client to extract session data to an external store.

For troubleshooting purposes, BeyondTrust Technical Support may require your BeyondTrust Virtual Appliance to be given reserved resources matching specifications in this document. Keeping that in mind, you are welcome to deviate from these specifications as you see fit.
