Proteome Software Application System Requirements

Scaffold and Elements System Requirements

Minimum Requirements

Scaffold, Q+, Q+S and PTM

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 and Windows Server 2008, 2012, Mac OS (10.9 and higher)* or Linux (see below for details)
  • 2 GB Usable RAM minimum (4 GB or more recommended, see below)
  • Scaffold can handle many more spectra and much larger data sets if a 64-bit system is used. These 64-bit systems run best with 4+ GB RAM. 32-bit and 64-bit installers are available for licensed and viewer programs
  • 60 GB Hard Disk space (for temp, backup, and GOA database files)

Scaffold DIA

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 and Windows Server 2008, 2012
  • 4 GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available

Scaffold perSPECtives

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 and Windows Server 2008, 2012, Mac OS (10.9 and higher)* or Linux (see below for details)
  • 4 GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available for non-viewer. Viewer available in 32-bit

Elements

  • Windows 7, 8, 10 and Windows Server 2008, 2012
  • 4 GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available

  • 16+ GB Usable RAM minimum
  • 60 GB Hard Disk space (for temp, backup, and GOA database files)

Scaffold perSPECtives

  • 64-bit Windows 10, Mac OS X Latest* or Linux (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or above)
  • 16+ GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available for non-viewer. Viewer available in 32-bit

Scaffold DIA**

  • 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 10
  • 16+ GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available, including the viewer

Elements

  • 64-bit Windows 7, 8, 10
  • 16+ GB Usable RAM minimum
  • Only 64-bit available, including the Viewer

 

*Our software is compatible with Mac OS (and OS X) 10.9 and above, but only tested on the current version (10.13.6 as of this writing, October 17, 2018)

**A note on Scaffold DIA resources. Processing DIA quite intensive from a computing standpoint. Determining exactly how much processing power one needs for a data set is not a trivial thing to determine. Both the size of the files and the complexity of the data play a role in determining the amount of resources required. The more data you wish to process at once, the more resources you will need. This is particularly true for RAM. Searching large datasets against a FASTA file is discouraged as the search space tends to grow unwieldy quickly. Searching against a FASTA should really only be used to build a chromatogram library or to search just a few small raw files. For processing large datasets in general, the more RAM you can provide, the better Scaffold DIA will likely perform.

 Important Notes

  • Updated bundled JRE to Java 1.8.0_102 for all operating systems for Scaffold as of 4.7
  • We recommend that you only install one version of our products on any one computer
  • Linux distributions supported: Ubuntu 9.x, 10.x, 11.x, 12.x, 13.x, 14.x, RHEL/CentOS 5.6 and higher
  • It is advisable to adjust your power settings to disable sleep or hibernate, as this might interfere with processing data
  • In some case, when processing large data sets, having more temp space or adjusting your temp to a writable location where you have more space is required
  • All products can handle much larger data sets if a 64-bit system is used
  • For storing large sets of complex proteomics or metabolomics data, we recommend at least one 1 TB drive. Having a system drive (preferably an SSD) and an additional data storage drive is best
