Minimum Requirements and Supported Platforms
The following prerequisites and supported platforms are required for working with Sisense.
Supported Web Browsers
The Sisense Web Application runs in the following HTML5 supported browsers:
Internet Explorer 10 and higher
Safari version 7 and higher
Note: When embedding iFrames, Sisense supports Safari 10 and higher
The Sisense Web Application also works in mobile phone and tablet browsers that support HTML5. Click here to learn more about mobile compatibility.
Supported Operating Systems
ElastiCube Server and ElastiCube Manager can be installed on the following 64-bit operating systems:
- Windows 7 and higher
- Windows Server 2008 R2 through Windows Server 2016
Note: While Sisense supports Windows 7, it is highly recommended that production environments use Windows Server 2008 and later.
Capacity and Hardware Requirements
Sisense easily scales up to billions of records with typical query response times of split seconds.
This section suggests system requirements for various performance capacities of the ElastiCube Server. Actual capacity requirements are provided after consultation with a Sisense technical representative at support@Sisense.com. Extreme scenarios may require additional resources.
Sisense Dashboard viewers only require an HTML5 compliant Web browser.
These hardware requirements are also true for cloud deployments. Whether you are using AWS/Azure/Rackspace/etc., you must choose a machine that meets the recommended hardware configuration.
* Users are defined as concurrent users of the system regardless of licenses.
Sisense recommends that your Sisense server meets or exceeds the minimum requirements listed above. The actual requirements of your Sisense server may vary depending on the number of concurrent users, builds running in parallel, ElastiCubes hosted on a server, and additional factors specific to your server, for example, non-Sisense applications running on the same server.
For optimal performance, Sisense recommends:
No more than 40 ElastiCubes on a single Sisense server
No more than 4 concurrent builds at a time
No more than 150 concurrent users
For optimal performance, Sisense highly recommends that your servers have a processor that supports AVX (Advanced Vector Extensions), which is leveraged by Sisense for improved query performance and user concurrency.
The formats for dates, times and numbers in your dashboards are based on your computer’s operating system or browser’s locale settings (depending on your browser).
Locales from the following countries are supported:
