Hardware Requirements

This product works well on any server that has been released in the last 10 years. Exact specifications depend on the usage scenario and peak load. Multiple servers can be load-balanced to achieve linear scalability and implement automatic fail-over. Please note that both OCR and PDF/A are very CPU intensive operations.


This depends on the size and complexity of the documents that are converted and the number of concurrent conversions taking place. We recommend a minimum of 1.5GB of total memory.


Any CPU that can comfortably run the installed version of SharePoint will be suitable. We recommend one or more multi-core CPUs.

Disk Space

This product requires 400MB of disk space.
