Zephyr System Requirements

Zephyr Enterprise must run in an isolated instance where there is no Jira running or any other Tomcat.

  • Zephyr Enterprise should only be installed on its own server. If you are running a Jira instance, it should be installed on a different server.
  • We recommend you to have Zephyr Enterprise installed on a separate instance from where you have your Jira/Tomcat installed.

General System Requirements

Supported Operating Systems:

Windows ServersWindows OSLinux OS
Windows Server 2008Windows 7 Enterprise

Database Requirements

Evaluation EnvironmentProduction Environment
The Zephyr Enterprise installer provides an option for using Embedded MySQL for the database. This should only be used for evaluation purposes and not for production instances.We recommend you always use an external database for improved performance and easy maintenance when setting up your production instance/server. This provides you with proper system performance for your Zephyr Enterprise instance.
