Sizing considerations

EAS proxy sizing

You can set up an EAS proxy to control the access of your managed devices to an email server. Email traffic of your managed devices is routed through that proxy. You can block email access for devices, for example a device that violates a compliance rule.

The EAS proxy does not require a lot of CPU or memory, but its key limitation is bandwidth. As the EAS proxy is critical for the delivery of email, for large installations, we recommend you use multiple instances of EAS proxies behind a load balancer. Note that this setup is not required for the PowerShell mode.

Sizing recommendation for EAS proxy: 1 CPU and 2 GB of memory.
