System Requirements
SAS® Enterprise Miner™ 14.2

Overview

The operating system releases listed in this document are typically the minimum level of supported environments. Later versions may be supported, as described in SAS® Third-Party Software Requirements - Baseline and Higher Support.

Server Tier Requirements

Base SAS and SAS/STAT must be installed on the server for SAS Enterprise Miner licenses. They are separately licensed.

SAS Enterprise Miner Server

Select a platform:

All server-tier machines require a minimum of 4 GB of memory plus 2 GB for each concurrent user.

SAS Enterprise Miner requires an instance of the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which is provided by SAS and installed by the SAS Deployment Wizard. Refer to the SAS 9.4 section of the Third-Party Software Requirements Web page, http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/, for more information.

SAS Metadata Server

Select a platform:

SAS recommends deploying SAS Metadata Server on a 64-bit host system. The SAS Metadata Server is multi-threaded, and multi-core server hardware (typically quad core or higher) is therefore recommended. A dedicated machine for the SAS Metadata Server is recommended to simplify tuning, management, and diagnostics, but is not required. The disk I/O performance of any server-class system should be sufficient. Memory requirements are highly dependent on the product mix and usage, but 8 GB of RAM are sufficient for most large deployments. For many deployments, 4 GB of RAM are sufficient and should be considered a minimum unless the specific deployment is tested and verified to require less memory.

By default, the SAS Metadata Server is installed on the same machine as the SAS Enterprise Miner Server. However, the SAS Metadata Server may be installed on a separate machine with prior approval from SAS sales management.


Middle Tier Requirements

SAS Enterprise Miner Mid-Tier

Select a platform:

All middle-tier machines require a minimum of 8 GB of memory.

SAS Enterprise Miner requires an instance of the JRE on the middle tier, which is provided by SAS and installed by the SAS Deployment Wizard. Refer to the SAS 9.4 section of the Third-Party Software Requirements Web page, http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/, for more information.

Web Application Servers

When you install your SAS solution software, SAS Deployment Manager installs and configures the required web application servers and web servers.

To install these servers, select one of the supported operating systems for the middle tier.

Note: These servers cannot be installed on the z/OS or 32-bit Windows platforms.


Client Tier Requirements

SAS Enterprise Miner Personal Client

Select a platform:

All client tier machines require a minimum of 4 GB of memory.

SAS Enterprise Miner requires an instance of the JRE on the client tier, which is provided by SAS and installed by the SAS Deployment Wizard. Refer to the SAS 9.4 section of the Third-Party Software Requirements Web page, http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/, for more information.

SAS Enterprise Miner Thin Clients

Select a platform:

The minimum memory requirement for SAS Enterprise Miner Thin Clients is 2 GB, but 4 GB are recommended.

Note:  Java Web Start can be used to access the SAS Enterprise Miner application. Java Standard Edition version 8 is supported to launch SAS Enterprise Miner using the Java Web Start client. JRE 1.7 or later must be installed on the client machine.

Web Browsers

The list of web browsers that SAS supports is updated as new software is tested and approved. For the latest information, select the link for Web Browsers and Plug-Ins at http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/index.html.
