The following requirements are based on a minimum installation of SolarWinds VoIP and Network Quality Manager with SQL Server on a separate database server.

To optimize database scalability, SolarWinds recommends that you maintain your SQL Server installation on its own server. If you must host your SQL server on the same server, SolarWinds recommends a quad-processor, 2.67 GHz, 64-bit CPU and at least 16 GB of RAM.
