Bizagi Studio system requirements

What does Bizagi Studio use?

To turn your process models into running applications, Bizagi Studio will use the following:

 

1. A database

Processes and their automation details in Bizagi are stored in a database.

 

2. A web-based Work portal

Bizagi Studio presents an integrated runtime environment where you can login to test your automation process. As the building process takes place, this runtime environment, or Work portal, reflects in real time all the changes performed in Bizagi Studio.

 

The Work portal is a web-based application that only requires a browser, and it is hosted using a web server instance.

Where you host this web server instance and Work portal, is called the Application Server.

Bizagi Studio uses this web server so that you may anytime launch the Work portal, just as it would be seen and made available to the end users on a working environment.

Bizagi Studio automatically generates the Work portal and provides this runtime environment for your automated processes, in order to allow you to carry out quick prototyping and tests.

 

 

System requirements

You may choose a quick start setup for which you can have everything needed by Bizagi Studio installed locally, or you may also choose a teamwork collaboration setup for multiple users to work together in your corporate processes automation.

 

Note that at any moment, you may easily move your project from that quick start setup into a teamwork collaboration setup.

 

 

Quick start setup

You may choose to have Bizagi Studio install for you a local database instance, and use a local web server instance as well.

This option is useful to achieve fast results for demos, product evaluation or prototypes.

 

For a quick start with Bizagi Studio, you only need to install Bizagi Studio and make sure that you choose the Install SQL Server Express 2008 SP3 option when configuring your installation:

 

install03

 

By default if you don't have a web server instance set up, then Bizagi Studio will use the local one provided within its installation:

IIS Express used for a .NET platform.

 

The quick start setup allows you to easily get started using Bizagi, with the required components set up locally on your system.

Make sure your system meets the minimum hardware requisites:

note_pin

Make sure you consider the following aspects:

1.  Operating systems and settings in Turkish language are not supported.

All involved machines will need to be set with regional settings different to those for Turkish language and culture (tr, tr-TR).

 

 

Important

The hardware requirements will also depend on other variables such as: the processing demands of tasks, the number of users working in the team, if there are multiple integration points in the processes, amongst others.

Therefore, the requisites presented above are the minimum you should consider.

 

Host settings when using virtual machines

For projects which are setup on virtual machines (i.e on VMWare products such as vSphere, Hyper-V, or cloud platforms/infrastructure services such as Azure, Amazon WS, etc), it is really important for you to ensure that:

The host machine provides a high-speed disk as well.

This is really important specially for the database server which constantly performs I/O operations.

Each virtual machine at the host is configured to have a reserved amount of resources accordingly (relevant to lock/limit memory, CPU, RAM, or other resources when operating alongside other virtual machines on the same host).
