Secondary servers (also called render stations) with direct connectivity to output devices only support Windows Server 2008 R2 x64.
Prinergy Workflow 8.1 is also supported in a virtual environment under VMware VSphere (VMware ESXi) versions 5.0, 5.5 and 6.0, and Microsoft Hyper-V 2012 and 2016.

Memory requirements

Prinergy primary servers and Hot Standby servers require a minimum of 12 GB RAM. Prinergy secondary servers and render stations require a minimum of 8 GB RAM.

Storage requirements

Prinergy Workflow 8.1 requires system drives with a minimum of 146 GB storage space (with at least 10 GB free space) on primary servers and system drives with a minimum of 73 GB storage space (with at least 10 GB free space) on secondary servers and render stations.

If upgrading from a version of Prinergy with Oracle 11 integrated, make sure that during the upgrade you have at least 3x the amount of disk space currently occupied by the database (J:\Oracle) available on the drive where the database is installed (default drive J:\Oracle).

We recommend using the Precheck tool that is included in the installer ahead of the upgrade. It will calculate the required space and warn you if it is insufficient.

Archive media

As of Prinergy Workflow 6.0, archiving to tape is no longer supported. You can switch to archive-to-disk, which has been available since Prinergy 5.0 or use a third party archiving solution for your jobs.

Hot Standby (EPM) servers

Prinergy Workflow 8.1 supports Vision Solutions Double-Take software 5.3 under Windows 2008 R2 and version 7.1 under Windows 2012 R2. Double-Take upgrades are performed by a Kodak engineer during the operating system upgrade.
