  • Can be installed on a Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) management server or root management server.

Server Sizing Guidelines

Squared Up has no defined minimum requirements for installation, the following specifications are a guideline on how you may wish to set-up your environment.

Environment Squared Up Users Servers monitored by SCOM CPU Memory Azure Equivalent Load Balanced Instances
Small Lab <10 <100 1 1 GB Azure A0 VM 1
Small Production <10 100 - 1000 2 3.5 GB Azure A2 VM 1
Large Production 10 - 100 1000 - 5000 4 7 GB Azure A3 2
Very Large Production >100 5000 - 15000 8 14 GB Azure A4 2 or More

When using Open Access we recommend an additional 100 MB memory per dashboard that will be made available as Open Access (regardless of how many clients are connecting to the Open Access dashboard).

Squared Up provides limited support for Internet Explorer 10. Known limitations include:

  • No Company Knowledge editing


Internet Explorer 9 and earlier versions are not supported.

Other operating system and browser combinations may also work, but may have had limited or no testing and will not be supported.


To add SCOM data to your Visio diagrams you will need the ‘Professional’ edition or above.
