Minimum Recommended Billing Server Specifications

We recommend a virtual server installation for new and migrated Powercode billing servers.  A virtual server’s ability to take a snapshot image of the server contents is a great source of peace of mind before making major changes to your system going forward.

Whether you are using a virtual or a physical server, these are the recommended minimum specifications:

  • 32 GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD hard drive
  • 8 CPU cores 2.5 GHz

If you would like to make use of file uploads, especially required photo uploads on installation and other job completion we would recommend a hard drive with 1 gigabyte of space for every two subscribers, or 256 GB, whichever is larger.

We do not recommend using a remotely hosted VPS as the providers often disable needed packages or make kernel modifications that impede the functionality of Powercode. If you wish to use a remote server, we recommend a dedicated or cloud compute instance from a hosting provider such as Vultr.
