Since SDL is a virtualized system that runs multiple OS’es, it split’s the computer’s hardware resources between the host and the guests (Open/Secure).

This means a 512 GB hard drive gives ca 200 GB each for Open/Secure, and 8 GB RAM gives ca 4 GB for each for Open/Secure. It is therefore important to have a large hard drive and lots of RAM before installing SDL.

In this section, we will go through the different requirements for installing Secure Data Layer.

If you are unsure about what settings need to be changed, you can run the installer and it will tell you once you reached the Requirements part of the Installation Guide.
