PaperCut Server Sizing Guide

KB Home   |   PaperCut Server Sizing Guide

The table below shows guidelines for the server specifications that are required to support PaperCut in order to give consistent performance given most patterns of use. Please note that Users refers to the number of active users per day. These guidelines apply both to physical hardware and to virtual servers / virtual machines hosted locally or remotely.

When deploying PaperCut it is recommended that virtual servers are used where possible for easy scaling and quick backup / restore.

Please Note: The specifications in the table below are meant as a guide only!

Always evaluate your host solution before deploying in order to make an informed decision regarding CPU load and memory usage.

PaperCut Authorized Solution Centers are able to offer architecture and infrastructure advice for large deployments.

Please see our System Requirements Article for more guidelines on server system requirements.
