System requirements

The following are the minimum hardware and software requirements for Cloud Cruiser Express and its components.

HPE recommends that you install Cloud Cruiser Express, your database server, and Windows Azure Pack on separate computers. These system requirements apply to that architecture.

Cloud Cruiser Express computer


  • 2 GHz or faster multi-core processor
  • 4 GB or more of system memory

Operating system

You must use the 64-bit version of Microsoft Windows Server 2008, 2012, or 2012 R2.

Java platform

The 64-bit version of Java Standard Edition 7 (JDK or JRE) is required. Version 8 is not supported.

You can download Java at The navigation of this site changes often, so you might need to look carefully to find version 7 in 64 bits.

Database server computer

A database server is not included with the Cloud Cruiser installation. You must provide one of the following database servers:

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or 2012
    ​The Express edition is not supported. Its limitations will result in unacceptable performance, even in small installations.
  • Oracle 10g or 11g

​​For hardware and operating system requirements for this computer, see the documentation for your database server. Storage needs will grow as Cloud Cruiser accumulates data over time.

Client computers

One of the following browsers:

  • Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) 10 or newer
    Although the product works on 32-bit versions of IE, Cloud Cruiser strongly recommends that you use the 64-bit version of IE for better performance.
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Google Chrome

As of the last update to this article, Cloud Cruiser has been tested with Firefox 32 and Chrome 37, and we continue to test with new, automated version updates of these browsers. The application should continue to function with such versions. However, some issues could arise that can only be resolved with subsequent patches to Cloud Cruiser or by reverting the browser update.
