ArcGIS Data Store 11.2 system requirements

The system and hardware requirements that are required to run ArcGIS Data Store are listed below. ArcGIS Data Store is a component of ArcGIS Enterprise; they both support the same operating systems and browsers.

Each of the ArcGIS Data Store types—relational, tile cache, graph, and spatiotemporal big data store—require different amounts of memory, disk space, and other resources. Be sure your machines meet the requirements for each. It is not recommended to put more than one data store type on the same machine but, if you do, be sure your machine meets combined requirements for all data stores and other software you have installed on the machine.

It's recommended that you review the deprecation notice to determine if your hardware and software components are still compatible with the latest version of ArcGIS Data Store.


ArcGIS Enterprise components require the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015–2022 Redistributable (x86 and x64) minimum version 14.31.31103. Obtain the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015–2022 file from the Microsoft site.

If the required Visual C++ Redistributable is not installed, running the ArcGIS Data Store setup.exe file will install it. Running the ArcGIS Data Store setup.msi file will not install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (x64). Therefore, to run the ArcGIS Data Store setup.msi, the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 - 2022 Redistributable (x64) must already be installed.

Windows operating system requirements

The following 64-bit operating systems satisfy the minimum operating system requirements. Support is not provided for 32-bit operating systems; the setup only proceeds if the operating system is 64 bit.

  • Prior and future updates or service packs for these operating system versions are supported unless otherwise stated. The operating system version and updates must also be supported by the operating system provider.
  • ArcGIS is only supported on 64 bit CPUs with x86-64 architecture.
  • The Desktop Experience option is required on all versions of Windows Server.
  • Windows 11 and 10 are supported for basic testing and application development use only.
  • Machines with an underscore (_) in their names are not supported. Several widely used internet host name specifications have designated the underscore character as nonstandard. Although Microsoft Windows allows you to use the underscore in a machine name, it can still cause problems when you interact with other servers and platforms. For this reason, the installation will not proceed on servers that have an underscore in the host name.
  • You cannot install on domain controllers. Installing on a domain controller may adversely affect functionality.

Disk space requirements

To install and configure ArcGIS Data Store requires a minimum of 13 GB of available disk space on the system drive. This is the minimum disk space requirement for a machine with one empty data store type; it does not take into account all the data you will store in the data store or backup files that might be stored on the machine. Given this requirement, plan to install ArcGIS Data Store on machines with large quantities of available disk space.


Monitor your data store logs so you are aware when a machine begins to run out of disk space. When a relational, tile cache, or spatiotemporal big data store machine or an object store machine contains less than 10 GB of free disk space, ArcGIS Data Store begins logging warnings that you are running out of disk space. If you configure email notification for the portal, the administrative contacts in that list will receive an email when the machines get close to running out of disk space. Once the disk drive contains less than 1 GB of free space, the relational and spatiotemporal big data stores are placed in read-only mode; the tile cache data store, object store, and graph store shut down. At this point, administrative contacts will receive another email indicating the data store is in read-only mode or shut down.

To determine the amount of disk space needed on a dedicated ArcGIS Data Store machine, take all of the following into consideration:

  • The software installation uses 2.8 GB of disk space.
  • Each data store uses an additional amount of space when created and still empty:
    • Tile cache data store = 1 MB
    • Spatiotemporal big data store = 200 MB
    • Relational data store = 2.5 GB*
    • Graph store = 100 MB
    • Object store = 500 MB

    *An empty relational data store uses up to 2.5 GB of disk space over time, to support high availability and a reliable backup policy. Upon configuration of the relational data store, approximately 200 MB of disk space is used. The amount of disk space used by the empty relational data store will grow by about 200 MB per hour over the course of 11 hours until settling at 2.5 GB at that time. Data stored in the system during use is in addition to this baseline storage requirement.

  • A minimum of 20 percent of the disk space on each machine must be available for temporary files when configuring or upgrading a spatiotemporal big data store.
  • You must estimate the amount of disk space needed for the data stored in the data stores. The numbers above are the minimum for empty data stores. That amount of free disk space allows you to create the data store. Additional space is needed to use it.
  • Backup files stored on the data store machine also consume disk space. If you do not configure backups to be written to a shared location or cloud storage, you must plan for this additional use of disk space.

Memory requirements

The minimum memory required to configure a single, empty ArcGIS Data Store on a machine varies by type.


Meeting the minimum free memory requirements ensures the data store will start. Once in use, additional memory is required.

The following minimum memory requirements assume you install each type of ArcGIS Data Store on its own machine; no other data store type or ArcGIS Enterprise component is installed on the machine. Amounts listed reflect the amount of free memory that must be available on the machine before installing ArcGIS Data Store and configuring a data store.

  • Relational data store = 8 GB
  • Spatiotemporal big data store = 16 GB
  • Tile cache data store = 8 GB
  • Graph store = 32 GB
  • Object store = 16 GB

Minimum CPU architecture requirements for graph stores

The processors in the machines where you install the graph store must use the Advanced Vector Extension 2 (AVX2) instruction set architecture.

Firewall settings

ArcGIS Data Store uses specific ports to communicate with the portal, the hosting server, and machines inside the data store.

See Ports used by ArcGIS Data Store for information on the ports you must open in the firewall and on machines to allow this communication to take place.

Supported web browsers

ArcGIS Data Store administration resources and the Data Store Configuration wizard require one of the following web browsers:

  • Google Chrome version 111 and later
  • Microsoft Edge version 111 and later
  • Mozilla Firefox version 113 and later
  • Mozilla Firefox version 102 (ESR)
  • Safari version 15 and later

Supported virtualization environments and cloud platforms

Virtualization and cloud environment support is the same for all components of a base ArcGIS Enterprise deployment. See ArcGIS Enterprise on cloud platforms and Supported virtualization environments in ArcGIS Enterprise system requirements for details.
