The ADX provides more advanced historical data management. The ADX supports up to 10, 25, 50, or 100 concurrent users connected to the Site Management Portal UI. The ADX offers manual, automatic, and scheduled archiving of historical data and offers extended reporting capabilities using SQL Server software or third-party software. For more information about supported concurrent users, see ADS/ADX concurrent users.
Note: SMP requires a license at Release 12.0 and later for non-MVE sites. The license is available to existing customers only.

The ADX supports the following Microsoft operating systems and SQL Server software versions:

  • Microsoft operating systems: Windows® Server® 2019 (version 1809 or later) (64-bit) Windows® Server® 2016 (version 1607 or later) (64-bit).
  • SQL Server software: SQL Server® 2019 with CU19 (64-bit) SQL Server® 2017 with CU31 (64-bit), SQL Server® 2016 with SP3 GDR (64-bit). ADXs using SQL Server 2016 and 2017 with SQL Server Reporting Services installed also support the Metasys Advanced Reporting system. See ADX with the Metasys Advanced Reporting System for more information.
  • Supports virtual environments, including VMware® and Microsoft Hyper-V™. Refer to the Network and IT Guidance Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011279) for more information.

The ADX may be installed in a split configuration. Splitting provides enhanced security for historical data. The ADX software and Site Management Portal UI are installed on one computer (the web/application server computer), and the historical trend, audit, and event data on another computer (the database server computer) running Microsoft SQL Server software.
