Hi all,

Does EBS (Messaging, Managing, Gateway) Need to be run on three physical servers, or can it be run on one physical server?

Watch Question

You can have it all on one , but it better be a very powerful server.


and it needn't be running the other parts in "virtual servers"

its a dual quad core xeon filled with SAS 15k 300Gb drives....

heres hoping...
No need to run in a virtual environment.
Have a look at this System REquirement page (if you haven't yet so) and see what hardware you need.

Also a FAQ section that gives you a lot of usful info.

Remember EBS only comes in 64-bit so make sure your server hardware meets this requirement. Also make sure you have plenty disk space on the server. From reading I think it requires at least 100Gb just for the system components so I guess that is why EBS can be installed on different servers.
