inmation Services (Connector, Relay, Core, Broker, Cache, Server) require a recent 64-bit Windows operating system. Supported OS are Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2016. For unsupported trials, the software can be installed on Windows 7/8 Professional (64-bit versions) and Windows 10. Connector services (data source integration) might be installed on desktop operating systems in case need be.
To be able to connect to legacy systems, a 32-bit version of the Connector is available that supports operating systems down to Windows XP SP3.
system:inmation can run on physical servers as well as virtualized servers. Tested platforms are Microsoft Hyper-V, VMWare and Oracle VirtualBox.
The visual product component – inmation DataStudio – requires a 64-bit Windows Operating System providing support for .NET 4.6.2. It does not require installation in the classical sense, but can be deployed in portable fashion (no Admin account required).
