Here you will find the hardware requirements for the installation of the following Jedox software: Jedox In-Memory DB Server (including all Jedox server components1)), Jedox GPU Accelerator, Jedox Web (Web Server and Spreadsheet Server), Jedox Excel Add-in Client, and Jedox Web Client.

Important preliminary remarks:
Overall, the performance depends on the size of the database and/or the complexity of the data model and the used rules. Furthermore, the number and the size of the Web Spreadsheets and Web Reports plays an important role in the performance. Finally, the number of all potential named users that are using the systems at the same time (concurrent sessions) has a major impact on HW 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 if your desired data analysis corresponds to such a base use. If this is not the case, then normally the hardware requirements are significantly higher.

 

General notes:
For larger applications, we recommend splitting the processes on several machines (see article Scaling Jedox).

For more than 500 concurrent sessions, a prior consultation with one of our consultants is required.

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 improvements.

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 (Servicename: JedoxSuiteMolapService),
  – Jedox Web Server (Servicename: JedoxSuiteHttpdService),
  – Jedox Spreadsheet Server (Servicename: JedoxSuiteCoreService),
  – Jedox Integrator Server (Servicename: JedoxSuiteTomcatService).

To increase the performance you can use additional server machine(s). On each of them must run 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.

3) Compute capability 3.0 or higher. For more details see https://developer.nvidia.com/cuda-gpus.
