GRC Cloud Server Requirements 8.4

Server Hardware Recommendations

GRC Cloud is built as a three-tier web-based application. Generally, it's recommended to have a virtualized system with three machines that includes three servers: a web server, an application server, and a database server. 

The recommendations for these servers, as outlined below, are for a typical implementation with approximately 50,000 items, 10 heavy users, and 90 light users. Resolver will provide recommendations on the virtual machine specifications based on your organization's individual implementation.
