System Requirements for Cubit

Follow

This document provides the system requirements when deploying and running Cubit in either of its three licence types which are Standalone, Network or Terminal.

 

Standalone Licence
The Standalone Licence is designed to be used on any independent standalone computer.

(Cubit client)

Operating System

Microsoft Windows 7 or later (32bit and 64bit)

Processor (Intel or AMD equivalent)

Minimum: Dual-core 1.86 GHz processor
Recommended: Dual-core 2.6 GHz processor

Memory

Recommended: 2 GB Ram. Supporting Open GL 2.0 or higher.

Hard Drive Space

Minimum: 1 Gigabyte of free space
Recommended: 4 Gigabytes of free space

The minimum and recommended specifications are guidelines, if dealing with large plans and models you may need to exceed the recommended specification.
 

Network Licence
The Cubit Network Licence is designed to be used in a network environment where multiple computers will connect to a common database installed on a nominated Cubit sever.

The typical deployment method for a network requires a server-side install (Cubit server) to be installed on a server and client-side (Cubit client) installed on the user’s computer.  Separating these two components represents a two-tier architecture.
