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 
BlackBerry 10
Android
, and 
Windows
 devices. Specific features, including 
BlackBerry Dynamics
, will limit the number of devices that one instance can support. Download the Performance Calculator to determine the number of instances required. For 
iOS
 and 
macOS
 devices, the maximum that can be supported per instance of 
BlackBerry UEM
 is up to 5000 devices; please see KB52804 for details on specific tuning required. One instance of the 
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
 can support up to 5000 
BlackBerry 10
iOS
macOS
Android
, and 
Windows
 devices.
Additional features and configurations create more connections and sessions between devices and the 
BlackBerry UEM
 instances, which limits the number of devices that one instance can support. To support more devices, add more instances of 
BlackBerry UEM
 and install 
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
 instances on separate servers. You can download the Performance calculator and use it to determine the minimum number of 
BlackBerry UEM
 instances and 
BlackBerry Connectivity Node
 instances for your device configuration and workload.
