Be sure to allocate a dedicated server for Spiceworks if you plan on keeping it running in your environment. I do recommend a Windows Server installation with more than 500GB of available space and more than 12GB of RAM for your installation. This should be more than sufficient to get you up and running with the product.

Spiceworks has done more for my IT department than any two or three other software packages combined, and all for free.

Minimum system requirements for the Spiceworks server will work for small networks, but larger networks with thousands of devices will need a much faster host computer for Spiceworks.

The fact that it cannot use Microsoft SQL for its db, but instead it self-installs it own little SQL lite. This makes it difficult for us to use it with our primary reporting server/service.

About Spiceworks Help Desk

Spiceworks offers a set of free tools for IT network management and help desk support ticketing. The inventory management system essentially provides comprehensive device information for asset management. The Spiceworks Network Monitor provides information on observed IT for problem tracking and server performance monitoring. And finally, the Spiceworks Help Desk Software lets IT personnel stay on top of issues across the network with a ticketing system. Help desk roles with role-based permissions and notifications allow tasks to be allocated across team members. If the user wishes to host Spiceworks apps and tools locally, then they are free. For cloud-based service, Spiceworks bills $12 per IT user per month, or $10 monthly per user if paid annually.

Spiceworks was founded in 2006 and is headquartered in Austin, Texas, also with a European headquarters in London (since 2012), and was backed by multiple investors, notably Goldman Sachs. In 2019 Spiceworks was acquired by Ziff Davis, a division of J2 Global. It is now a J2 Global company, operating under the name Spiceworks Ziff Davis.
