Hardware requirements for up to 25,000 devices

For a domain with up to 25,000 devices, you can install all
BlackBerry UEM
components on one server, or you can install the
BlackBerry UEM
primary components and management console on one server, and the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
on another server.
In both types of deployment, install
Microsoft SQL Server
on a separate server. The servers that host
BlackBerry UEM
must be physically located near the server with the
Microsoft SQL Server
database (less than 5ms latency).
One instance of
BlackBerry UEM
can support:
  • Up to 25,000
    Android
    ,
    Windows
    10, or
    BlackBerry 10
    devices with MDM-only activation (no
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    )
  • Up to 25,000
    Android
    ,

    devices with
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    -only activation (no MDM)
  • Up to 20,000
    Android
    devices with MDM and
    BlackBerry Dynamics
  • Up to 10,000
    iOS
    devices with MDM (with or without
    BlackBerry Dynamics
    )
Specific features may also limit the number of devices that one instance can support. Download the Performance calculator to determine the number of instances required.
One standard instance of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
can support up to 5000
iOS

macOS
,
Android
,
