Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2 (Please refer to the requirements for the .Net Framework for operating systems)

Devolutions Password Server Console must be installed on the server to manage the Devolutions Password Server instance(s).


Server sizing


Many customers often ask how to properly customize their servers for various topologies. This is essentially unreliable because the way the system is used has a significant impact on the resource usage of each node within the chosen Topology.


The great majority of setups that we have seen work well with nodes of 4GB RAM and a dual CPU. Most of these are virtualized environments, so granting more resources is relatively simple.


For a proper estimate, the following aspects must be considered:


oNumber of entries stored in your instance (server details, credentials, etc.).

oChurn of these entries; do you create entries daily or are they quite static?

oNumber of concurrent users that connect to the Devolutions Password Server instance during peak times.

oUsage of information by the users. Are they launching 10 sessions at a time, doing a batch operation that takes a few minutes, then repeating the cycle, or are they opening only a few sessions but working within them all day long. This results in write operations to our logs, therefore the former case is more intensive then the latter.


64-bit Support


Devolutions Password Server is compatible with all 64-bit versions of Windows.
