The following list of operating system requirements are guidelines: we have tested and qualified these minimum specifications and hardware configurations for the successful deployment and proper operation of our client; often specifically based on the minimum requirements of each individual vendor recommendation. 

 

Please remember to review this topic regularly; as we will continuously revise and evolve our requirements, as more information becomes available.

 

Windows 

  • IntelĀ® or AMD x64 (64-bit) or x86 (32-bit) 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor
  • Microsoft Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 (requires TLS 1.1 and above), Windows 8, 8.1, or Windows 10, and Windows Server 2008, R2 or Windows Server 2012, R2 or Windows Server 2016, or above
  • 2 GB or more of RAM (4 GB recommended)
  • 200 MB or more of available local hard drive space for installation; additional free space required during operation, for cloud data file access and local caching (5GiB default local cache)
  • Internet connectivity** is necessary to initially join your Filespace; and for ongoing access to online object store resources

macOS 

  • Multicore 2.4 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor
  • macOS Sierra (10.12) and above
  • 2 GB or more of RAM (4 GB recommended)
  • 200 MB or more of available local hard drive space for installation; additional free space required during operation, for cloud data file access and local caching (5GiB default local cache)
  • Internet connectivity** is necessary to initially join your Filespace; and for ongoing access to online object store resources
  • LucidFS 4.2.4 is the currently qualified version for approved use with LucidLink. Do not use version numbers higher than 4.2.4 with machines requiring LucidLink.

Linux

  • IntelĀ® or AMD x64 (64-bit) 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor
  • Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Amazon Linux, Arch Linux; Debian .deb and RHEL/CentOS .rpm packages 
  • 2 GB or more of RAM (4 GB recommended)
  • 200 MB or more of available local hard drive space for installation; additional free space required during operation, for cloud data file access and local caching (5GiB default local cache)
  • Internet connectivity** is necessary to initially join your Filespace; and for ongoing access to online object store resources

 

Firewall port(s) and required software disclosure

 

Unlisted systems*

Our best efforts are to support as many operating environments as possible: if your available system resources are not listed, it is not to say our client will not operate, moreover we may not have qualified against the resources available to your system and will endeavor to provide our best efforts to support you. 

 

* Please assist us in field qualification of any system requirements unlisted above.

** Requires a suitable internet connection, which matches the IO expectations of liaising with remote data (not previously cached) from the cloud. i.e.. size of data, latency between user and data, all affect overall user experience - the client imposes no artificial limitations on the connectivity available, and will use as much, or as little connectivity available at any given period.
