SQL Server 2017 Enterprise

Component Requirement
.NET Framework SQL Server 2016 RC1 and later require .NET Framework 4.6 for the Database Engine, Master Data Services, or Replication. SQL Server 2016 setup automatically installs .NET Framework. You can also manually install .NET Framework from Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (Web Installer) for Windows

For more information, recommendations, and guidance about .NET Framework 4.6 see .

Windows 8.1, and Windows Server 2012 R2 require 
KB2919355 before installing .NET Framework 4.6.

Network Software

Supported operating systems for SQL Server have built-in network software. Named and default instances of a stand-alone installation support the following network protocols: Shared memory, Named Pipes, TCP/IP and VIA.

Note: Shared memory and VIA are not supported on failover clusters.

Also note that the VIA protocol is deprecated. This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

For more information about Network Protocols and Network Libraries, see Network Protocols and Network Libraries.

Hard Disk SQL Server requires a minimum of 6 GB of available hard-disk space.

Disk space requirements will vary with the SQL Server components you install. For more information, see Hard Disk Space Requirements later in this topic. For information on supported storage types for data files, see Storage Types for Data Files.
Drive A DVD drive, as appropriate, is required for installation from disc.
Monitor SQL Server requires Super-VGA (800x600) or higher resolution monitor.
Internet Internet functionality requires Internet access (fees may apply).

Note: Running SQL Server on a virtual machine will be slower than running natively because of the overhead of virtualization.

There are additional hardware and software requirements for the PolyBase feature. For more information, see Get started with PolyBase.


The following memory and processor requirements apply to all editions of SQL Server:

Component Requirement
Express Editions: 512 MB
All other editions: 1 GB
Express Editions: 1 GB
All other editions: At least 4 GB and should be increased as database size increases to ensure optimal performance.
Processor Speed Minimum: x64 Processor: 1.4 GHz

 Recommended: 2.0 GHz or faster
Processor Type x64 Processor: AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon 64, Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support, Intel Pentium IV with EM64T support

Note: Installation of SQL Server is supported on x64 processors only. It is no longer supported on x86 processors.

* The minimum memory required for installing the Data Quality Server component in Data Quality Services (DQS) is 2 GB of RAM, which is different from the SQL Server minimum memory requirement. For information about installing DQS, see Install Data Quality Services.
