System Requirements
SASĀ® Data Quality Advanced 2.7

Overview

SAS Data Quality Advanced is available for both distributed and non-distributed SAS LASR Analytic Server deployments. These system requirements apply to both LASR deployments. The headings below indicate whether components apply to a specific LASR deployment.

Server-Tier Requirements

SAS Data Quality Advanced Server

Select a platform:

SAS Data Quality Advanced Server includes a SAS Data Management Contextual Extraction Language Pack of choice and a Quality Knowledge Base Locale of choice. If not specified, by default, SAS Quality Knowledge Base Locale for English (USA) will be included.

Note: SAS Data Management Server Remote Function Call for SAP 2.7 and SAS Federation Server Driver for SAP 4.2 will only be included upon request.

Important: When installing SAS Visual Process Orchestration Server on Windows, SAS Visual Process Orchestration Server only runs on Windows 64-bit operating systems. If Windows 32-bit operating system is necessary, it must be deployed using a Windows 64-bit system. Otherwise, SAS Visual Process Orchestration Server cannot be deployed on Windows.

SAS Data Quality Server includes a Quality Knowledge Base Locale of choice. If not specified, by default, SAS Quality Knowledge Base Locale for English (USA) will be included.

SAS Authentication Server

SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Server

Select a platform:

SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Server includes one standard SAS/ACCESS engine of choice. SAS recommends that you install SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Server on a separate machine from the solution software.

Inclusion of SAS Visual Analytics LASR Server

  • SAS Visual Analytics LASR Server, Non-distributed is included automatically if the deployment is for Non-distributed LASR. It is optional if the deployment is for Distributed LASR.
  • SAS Visual Analytics LASR Server, Distributed is included automatically if the deployment is for Distributed LASR.

For Hadoop Support

Base SAS, SAS/ACCESS engines, and SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Server can be installed on the head node of the commodity hardware (symmetric) or on separate hardware (asymmetric). The Distributed LASR Base SAS components for SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting can therefore be installed on Windows for x64 while working with the Linux for x64 LASR grid.

SAS LASR Analytic Server (Distributed LASR) on Linux for x64

SAS Products installed on this machine:
  • SAS High-Performance Computing Management Console 2.8
  • SAS High-Performance Node Installation 3.6
  • SAS Plug-ins for Hadoop 1.0

Disk Space Consumed by Installed Products: 1 MB
Supported Environments:
  • Oracle Linux 6.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.7 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family
  • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP1 (64-bit version) on the x64 chip family

SAS LASR Analytic Server (Distributed Mode) requires Greenplum or Teradata (appliance obtained from vendor) or Hadoop (commodity hardware).


Use of a colocated Hadoop File System (HDFS) is optional, but it requires a supported Hadoop environment and SAS Plug-ins for Hadoop (which are included with your license). For information about supported Hadoop distributions, refer to http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v94/hadoop/hadoop-distributions.html. The plug-ins require additional configuration. For more information, see SAS High-Performance Analytics Infrastructure 3.5: Installation and Configuration Guide at http://support.sas.com/documentation/solutions/hpainfrastructure/.

 

SAS Metadata Server

Select a platform:

SAS makes the following recommendations for SAS Metadata Server deployments:

  • a 64-bit host system
  • a dedicated machine to simplify tuning, management, and diagnostics
  • multi-core server hardware because SAS Metadata Server is multi-threaded
  • four or more cores for production deployments

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.


Middle-Tier Requirements

DataFlux Web Studio Mid-Tier

Select a platform:

To avoid deployment issues with your SAS software, make sure that Java 6 or higher is installed on the host before you begin the SAS deployment process.

SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Mid-Tier

Select a platform:

We recommend installing SAS Visual Analytics Administration and Reporting Mid-Tier on a separate machine.

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

Note: Microsoft Windows 10 desktop operating system is also supported for SAS client software.

SAS Data Quality Advanced Studio

Select a platform:

SAS Data Quality Advanced Studio includes a SAS Data Management Contextual Extraction Language Pack of choice. It also includes a Quality Knowledge Base Locale of choice. If not specified, by default, SAS Quality Knowledge Base Locale for English (USA) will be included.

SAS Data Quality Advanced Client

Select a platform:

SAS Visual Analytics Mobile Clients

SAS Visual Analytics Mobile Clients (SAS Mobile BI) are available for the Apple iPad and Android tablets via free downloads from app stores.

Web Browsers

The list of web browsers that SAS supports is updated as new products are tested and approved. For the latest information, visit the SAS 9.4 Support for Web Browsers and Plug-Ins page at http://support.sas.com/resources/thirdpartysupport/v94/browsers.html.
