However, if you need to install a servers inside your network for security reasons, then you must follow the requirements specified in the table below. The central server may also be referred to as the “Carat” server.

These requirements are only guidelines. Utilization may increase or decrease with RF topology and test profile configuration. We require that the VM have dedicated resources. There should not be any memory over-commitment or shared CPUs. Storage space requirements are based on 3 months data retention and will increase 33.3% each revolving month.
