Hardware and software requirements

Deploying the application on a virtual platform requires installing the VMware ESXi™ 6.5, 6.7 or 7.0 hypervisor.

The configuration of the Kaspersky Sandbox servers depends on the volume of data to be processed by the application and the throughput of the network link.

Kaspersky Sandbox is not supported on AMD™ processors.

Hardware and software requirements of the Kaspersky Sandbox physical server

The Kaspersky Sandbox solution supports physical server configurations listed in the following table.

Example of Kaspersky Sandbox performance:

Physical server configuration:

CPU: 4 cores with Hyper-Threading support (8 threads), 2.1 GHz

RAM: 32 GB

Two hard drives in a RAID 1 array:

  • volume: 600 GB each
  • rotation speed: 10,000 rpm

    Two network adapters with 1 Gbit/s data transfer rate.

    On a server with the specified configuration, Kaspersky Sandbox can:

  • Process objects received from workstations with Kaspersky Endpoint Security or Kaspersky Endpoint Agent. Maximum number of workstations: 250.
  • Process objects received from external systems via the API. Maximum objects per hour: 75.

For example, if you want to double the performance of Kaspersky Sandbox (to receive objects from 500 workstations or 150 objects per hour from external systems via the API), you can combine 2 servers into a cluster.

Hardware and software requirements of Kaspersky Sandbox virtual machine

The Kaspersky Sandbox application supports the following virtual machine configuration:

Virtual machine settings:

  1. Expose hardware assisted virtualization to the guest OS check box selected.
  2. Latency Sensitivity option set to High.
  3. Entire RAM reserved (32 GB).
  4. Entire CPU clock rate reserved.

    You can use the following formula to calculate the entire CPU clock rate: 12 * <clock rate in MHz>.

When configuring the virtual machine, your configuration must match the description above. Only the CPU clock rate can be varied: you can configure a value of 2.2 GHz or higher. If the configuration of your virtual machine deviates from the description above, correct installation and operation of Kaspersky Sandbox is not guaranteed.

Installed on a virtual machine, Kaspersky Sandbox can process objects from up to 250 workstations or 100 objects per hour received using the API.

Throughput requirements for the link between workstations with the EPP application and the Kaspersky Sandbox server

Minimum requirements for the link between workstations that have the Kaspersky Endpoint Security application installed and the Kaspersky Sandbox server are listed in the following table.
