Hardware Requirements

Jedox Cloud

Jedox Cloud provides a Jedox platform running in a fully managed, cloud-native, scalable, high-performance environment with enough computing, storage, and network resources to support your business demands. Users require only a desktop or mobile device with fast internet access and a web browser that supports Jedox software.

Jedox Private Cloud

Jedox Private Cloud brings the Jedox Cloud experience to customers with their own cloud infrastructure. They can bring their own subscription in a public cloud (BYOS) or even in their own on-prem data center / private cloud. This is a fully managed offering, and sizing matches those of Jedox Cloud.

Jedox On-Premises

The Jedox software suite includes

  • In-Memory DB (including all Jedox server components)
  • Jedox Web Server and Spreadsheet Server
  • Excel Add-in client
  • Jedox Web client
  • GPU Accelerator2

Overall, the performance depends on the size of the database and / or the complexity of the data model (e.g. rules used). Furthermore, the number and the size of the Web Spreadsheets and Web Reports plays an important role for the performance. Finally, the number of all potential named users who are using the systems at the same time (concurrent sessions) has a major impact on hardware requirements.

For these reasons, the following hardware recommendations are limited to the basic use of our software products. Please contact one of our experienced consultants to determine whether your desired data analysis corresponds to this level of use. If not, then your hardware requirements may be higher.

For larger applications, we recommend clustering Jedox processes across several machines (see Scaling Jedox). For more than 500 concurrent sessions, a prior consultation with one of our consultants is required.

Jedox products also support virtual platforms; however, compared with a real hardware constellation, performance degradation is more likely to occur. The difference in performance must be checked in each individual case, since this depends on the application and on the given virtual platform.

1) Jedox server components are:

  • In-Memory DB Server (service name: JedoxSuiteMolapService),
  • Web Server (service name: JedoxSuiteHttpdService),
  • Spreadsheet Server (service name: JedoxSuiteCoreService),
  • Integrator Server (service name: JedoxSuiteTomcatService).

To increase performance, you can use one or more additional servers, each running Jedox Web Server and Jedox Spreadsheet Server. In this case, we recommend that you do not reduce the power of the first server machine.

Supervision Server and Jedox SAP Connector do not have exclusive hardware requirements.

2) CPU specifications are sample data, equivalent processors are also possible. Memory data means free memory.
4) Compute capability 3.0 or higher. For more details see https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus.
5) Virtual Network Interfaces are not supported.

Screen Resolution

Jedox Web spreadsheets dialogs fully support the required minimum display resolution of 1366x768 pixels.
