Each part of a Deep Security deployment has its own system requirements.
Requirements vary by version. For older versions of
If you plan to operate Deep Security in FIPS mode, see FIPS 140-2 support for additional requirements.

|Minimum memory (RAM)||
Minimum RAM requirements depend on the number of agents that are being managed. See Deep Security Manager sizing.
On Linux, reserved system memory is separate from process memory. Therefore, although the installer's estimate might be similar, it will detect less RAM than the computer actually has. To verify the computer's actual total RAM, log in with a superuser account and enter:
|Minimum disk space||1.5 GB (200 GB recommended)|
If you are upgrading your Deep Security Manager and are using Windows Server 2008, we recommend that you add a new Deep Security Manager node on a supported operating system (see Run Deep Security Manager on multiple nodes). When that's complete, decommission the node running on Windows Server 2008.

Requirements vary by OS version and the features that you enable. See Deep Security Agent and Relay sizing
For a list of all operating systems and agent versions that are compatible with Deep Security Manager 12.0, see Deep Security Agent platforms.
Because the appliance uses the same protection modules as agents, if you import an update to the 64-bit agent for Red Hat, it may notify you that new software is available for the appliance, like it does for Red Hat agents.
64-bit, Intel-VT or AMD-V present and enabled in UEFI.
The number of CPUs varies by the number of VMs being protected. See Deep Security Virtual Appliance sizing.
