This information is intended as a reasonable guideline only. The actual hardware requirement necessary to attain satisfactory performance is influenced by many external factors, such as other applications running on the same infrastructure.

If you are unsure or have any questions, please contact the Shire Customer Support team.

Pirana CMMS: Deployment

Pirana CMMS software is a web server application that can be deployed across the internet, across your work network, or if required on a standalone PC. Pirana is accessed via a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox.

Internet Information Services (IIS) is required to install and configure Pirana CMMS.

Supported Operating Systems

For national/multinational LAN/WAN/Internet deployment supporting 5 to 50 concurrent users we recommend

  • MS Windows 2012 Server (All editions including x64)
  • MS Windows 2008 Server (All editions including x64)

For standalone/small office deployment supporting a maximum of 5 concurrent Pirana users the following operating systems are also supported:

  • MS Windows 8/8.1 (All editions except Windows RT)
  • MS Windows 7(All editions)
  • MS Windows Vista (Business / Ultimate editions)

Hardware Specification

The performance of the system will be affected by the specification of the computer on which it is operated.

The software may function on a computer with a slightly lower specification than those recommended. However, it is likely that performance will be impaired.

To get the best possible performance from your Pirana CMMS software, it's important to check that your Pirana application server meets the minimum requirements of the software and, where possible, the optimum requirements.

Pirana SQL Database

Pirana CMMS database can be deployed on an existing 2008/2012/2014/x64 SQL Server. Pirana is provided with SQL Server Express edition for those without an existing SQL Server.

Hardware Virtualisation

Your Pirana application server can be virtualised.
