Zoomdata Version

System Requirements

System requirements for deploying Zoomdata on-premise is provided in this article. Zoomdata can be downloaded and installed in different Linux distributions.

Zoomdata can be deployed either on-premise or in the Cloud. To learn about Zoomdata's Cloud deployment options, refer to our Free Trials information page.

The Zoomdata application is accessed using modern-day web browsers that support web socket technology. The following requirements are needed in order to successfully deploy and access the Zoomdata Server in your operating environment. These requirements have been tested and verified to support Zoomdata.

Software Requirements

For Linux deployments, 64-bit Linux-based OS is required. Table 1 shows the Linux distributions supported along with the corresponding minimum supported version. Zoomdata Server also utilizes Java, PostgreSQL and Spark. Ensure that the appropriate version of these tools are used in the deployment of Zoomdata in your operating environment.

Zoomdata is unable to run on 32-bit OS.
Table 1
Distribution Minimum Supported Version
CentOS v6.5
Red Hat v6.5
Scientific Linux v6.5
Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04 LTS
PostgreSQL v9.5
Java v8
Spark v1.3.1 (v1.5.1 is preferable)

Hardware Requirements

For RPM and Ubuntu installations, the following server specifications are recommended:

  • 64 GB RAM (minimum is 16 GB)
  • 500 GB disk space
  • 16 cores

Network Requirements


By default, the Zoomdata Server uses port 8443. However, you have the flexibility to configure Zoomdata to use different ports. The following options are available:

  • For HTTPS requests, configure your firewall to map port 443 to either (1) 8443 or (2) 8080
  • To use HTTP (instead of HTTPS), Zoomdata can be configured to listen to port 8080

Essentially, you can configure the Zoomdata Server so that only one or two ports are open externally (to the general public) once your configuration is complete.

Time Synchronization

Zoomdata recommends installing the Network Time Protocol daemon (NTPD) to allow for time synchronization of networked servers to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), if not already available in your network. Refer to the article Using the Network Time Protocol to Synchronize Time for guidance.
