Pirana Minimum Hardware and OS Requirements

This information is intended as a reasonable guideline only. The actual hardware requirement necessary to attain satisfactory performance is influenced by many external factors, such as other applications running on the same infrastructure. The software may function on a server with a slightly lower specification than those recommended. However, it is likely that performance will be impaired. To get the best possible performance from your Pirana CMMS software, it's important to check that your Pirana application server meets the minimum requirements of the software. If you are unsure or have any questions, please contact the Shire Customer Support team.
