System Requirements


The ideal computer for Pirform is an Ultrabook.

  • An Intel i5 processor, or equivalent
  • 4GB of RAM or more
  • Pirform data stored on an SSD

The minimum specification we recommend for Pirform is

  • An Intel i3 processor, or equivalent
  • 2GB of RAM or more

Most cheap laptops exceed this level of specification, but Netbooks are generally much lower than these recommendations.  

If you run Pirform on a PC with a lower specification then it will run more slowly and you will not have as good an experience as you should have.  However, you can follow the tips in this article to get the most out of Pirform on a low spec machine.

The amount of disk space required by Pirform varies depending on the number of certificates you have and where you store your backups.  Pirform will not operate on compressed disks.
