Operating system recommendations

Process Mining and Mining Prep run on any host or system that supports Docker containers. Appian prefers to run deployments with Docker CE/EE on Linux and specifically on Ubuntu. Ubuntu is one of the few officially supported Linux distributions for the Community Edition of Docker, which ensures well-tested updates without a need to purchase an additional license for Docker.

Tip:  If you use Windows, we recommend setting up a supported Linux installation on a virtual machine (VM) software like Oracle VirtualBox. We don't recommend setting up Linux with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).

Other Linux operating systems recommended and tested by Appian and officially supported by Docker include:

  • RedHat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
  • Debian

The following Linux distros are not tested by Appian and we can’t guarantee an out-of-the-box installation.

  • Fedora
  • Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES)
  • Oracle Linux
  • CentOS
  • Operating system: Ubuntu 18.04/20.04. Ubuntu is preferred, other mainline Linux distributions are suitable as well.
  • Hardware: Must support virtualization. For an optimal experience, the hardware should be dedicated to Appian software and support virtualization.
  • RAM: 64 GB (depending on data size)
  • CPU: Minimum of 16 (virtual) cores
  • Disks:
    • Min 32 GB (root)
    • 256 GB data (mount at /var/lib/docker, preferably SSD)
  • Required software: Docker CE (or EE); docker-compose
  • Inbound traffic to the host:
    • 443 TCP (HTTPS)
    • 80 TCP (HTTP) (optional). Port 80 will redirect to 443, we configure HTTPS and set the secure flag on all cookies.
    • 22 TCP (SSH). For managed deployments only. We use SSH to access Linux machines.
  • Networking: Unrestricted between hosts
  • DNS: Entries point to all hosts

Tip:  We highly recommend an isolated machine just for Process Mining and a separate machine for Mining Prep.


If you're setting up on RHEL, you'll need to complete some additional steps to use the Docker container. Before you proceed to installation, first:
