the necessary conditions for installing SQL Server 2019 on Windows servers.

Requirements for Hardware:

  • The disk space requirements for SQL Server will vary depending on the components you choose when installation, with a minimum of 6GB needed on the drive where SQL is being installed.
  • It needs at least 1GB of RAM, although Microsoft advises 4GB, and depending on the size of the database, we might need to increase the RAM for better performance.
  • Note that only x64 processors are supported for SQL Server installation. MS no longer provides support for x86.

Requirements for Software:

  • Windows Server 2016 or Windows Server 2019 is the minimal operating system requirement for SQL Server 2019.
  • It needs the.NET Framework 4.6.1, which Windows Server 2016/Windows Server 2019 will have already installed.
  • Additionally, it is preferable to have.NET Framework 3.5 installed because Database Mail needs it.
