To review the requirements for integration with the Orion Platform and Virtual Infrastructure Monitor (VIM), see Virtual Infrastructure Monitor recommended requirements. Recommendations requirements are available in that section.
To learn more about memory requirements, see Reduce the memory requirements of Virtualization Manager.
200 GB or more.
At least 200 GB of disk space is recommended. At the default collection interval, a virtualized environment containing 1000 VMs and 100 hosts requires 40 GB of storage during the first month, and an additional 60 GB of storage over the next five years.
To estimate the disk space requirements over time, download the SolarWinds Virtualization Manager Storage Calculator.
