Jedox Cloud

In Jedox Cloud, all Jedox software modules (except for Jedox 3rd Party Access) are accessible in a high-performance hardware environment. Users require only a computer or mobile device with fast internet performance and a browser that supports Jedox software (see Platform Support Guide for Jedox Software).

Jedox On-Premises

The Jedox software suite includes

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

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 can 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:

  • Jedox In-Memory DB Server (service name: JedoxSuiteMolapService),
  • Jedox Web Server (service name: JedoxSuiteHttpdService),
  • Jedox Spreadsheet Server (service name: JedoxSuiteCoreService),
  • Jedox 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) The Jedox GPU Accelerator can utilize CUDA-capable NVIDIA graphics cards as massively parallel co-processors for speeding up OLAP aggregations. Thus Jedox applications may achieve significant performance improvement. Note that on-premises use of the Jedox GPU Accelerator requires a separate Jedox license, as well as additional GPU card.

3) 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.
