Refer to the system requirements for all three products for the hardware requirements. Please consult a qualified IT professional to help determine your hardware requirements.
Some reasons to consider a dedicated server include, but are not limited to:
- Better Performance - Our software will not have to contend for resources with other programs. Performance would be dependent on many factors, including system hardware and server processing loads.
- Stability - Fewer conflicts can occur since other software packages are not installing and using files on the server.
- Ease of Use - Database maintenance or server reboots will not affect any other software packages running on the same server.
- Security - Access to the server can be restricted to only Blackbaud users.

This information is a supplement to our system requirements, your primary information source when purchasing new hardware and installing or upgrading third-party software. We do not test all third-party products with our software. We consider our access to each product, its usage by our customers, and the most current release when we plan our testing.
