MDM 7.2 Hard Disk Space Requirement

Posted by softwareguru on October 19, 2012

I need a solution

Hi guys,

I would like to know what are the system requirements for MDM 7.2? How much hard disk space does it require? From this link here it says approximately 10 GB for large scale enterprise.

Our implementation will be Symantec Management Platform 7.1. I believe the Disk Space requirement below will be almost similar with the 7.1 version.

However I was told it would be best to have 100 GB. If it really needs 100 GB, I may need to justify to the customer on the huge requirement? Is it due to the database?

Please advice since I am bit confused

Thank you.

I need a solution

The customer is now testing Mobile Security Solutions of 3 Vendors – Symantec, Mcaffee, ESET. They have tested realtime scan with the Eicar virus test file. Other Vendors have detected the test file during the download, Symantec Mobile Security NOT. Symantec mobile security has detected the Eicar only when it was downloaded through the Google Market.

Could you please help me with this question. I would need a detailed explanation, how does it work.
