Hardware requirements for up to 150,000 devices

For a domain with up to 150,000 devices, you can install multiple instances of all
BlackBerry UEM
components, or you can install multiple instances of the
BlackBerry UEM
primary components and management console, and multiple instances of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
.
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). The
BlackBerry UEM
servers do not need to be near the mail and messaging servers.
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
    ,
    iOS
    ,
    Windows
    10, or
    macOS
    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 instance of the
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
can support up to 5000
iOS
,
macOS
,
Android
,
Windows
, or
BlackBerry 10
devices.
