Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Installation for Enterprise Data Preparation

Verify Sizing Requirements

Verify Sizing Requirements

Allocate resources for installation and deployment of services based on the expected deployment type of your environment.
Before you allocate resources, you need to identify the deployment type based on your requirements for the volume of processing and the level of concurrency. Based on the deployment type, you can allocate resources for disk space, cores, and RAM. You can also choose to tune services when you run the installer.

Determine the Installation and Service Deployment Type

The following table describes the environment for the different deployment types:
Deployment Type
Environment Description
Sandbox
Used for proof of concepts or as a sandbox with minimal users.
Basic
Used for low volume processing with low levels of concurrency.
Standard
Used for high volume processing with low levels of concurrency.
Advanced
Used for high volume processing with high levels of concurrency.

The sizing requirements account for the following factors:
  • Disk space required to extract the installer
  • Temporary disk space to run the installer
  • Disk space required to install the services and components
  • Disk space required for log directories
  • Requirements to run the application services
The sizing numbers do not account for operational data processing and object caching requirements for native mode of execution.
For cloud deployments, choose machines with a configuration that is closest to the sizing requirements.
