Step 1. Verifying System Requirements

Previous Step

The following minimum hardware requirements and recommendations apply to all servers running Sisense, including physical hardware and virtual machines.

The Sisense Linux deployment is certified to run on the following operating systems:

The Sisense Linux Cloud-native deployment is currently certified to run on local data centers and on AWS. Certification on Azure and GCP will be provided in the future.

Your servers should meet or exceed the minimum of these hardware recommendations.

Note the Linux cloud-native deployments require an additional 4 GB RAM beyond the Sisense requirements for Windows deployments, to handle the cluster infrastructure.

The actual hardware requirements of the cluster depends on many parameters, including the data size, the models created in the system, and the dashboard complexity, and needs to be determined per specific deployment. Additionally, using custom queries in model definitions adds additional compute load to the system, and needs to be considered when planning your deployment.

Deployment Type Processor CPU RAM DISK SPACE

Single node

64-bit

8-core, 2.0 GHz or higher

16 GB

50 GB for the first partition. For the second partition or disk /opt/sisense, the space should be two times the amount of your data

Multi-Node (per server)

64-bit

8-core, 2.0 GHz or higher

16 GB

50 GB for the first partition. For the second partition or disk /opt/sisense, the space should be two times the amount of your data
