CFMS Infor ION BI 10.4 Requirements

  1. 1. CFMS Infor ION BI hardware and software requirementsInfor ION BI Version 10.4.xUpdated 27th February 2013OverviewInfor ION BI OLAP consists of: Server side: - OLAP Server - SQL Repository - Application Studio Web Services (optional) Client side: - Office Plus - Application StudioCFMS strongly recommend a dedicated machine for the OLAP Server in order to ensure optimalstability, performance and lowest cost of ownership.The solution will work – and is fully supported – in a Citrix or Terminal Services environment, and onvirtual machines. In these cases “dedicated” means that the allocation of resources such as CPUcores and RAM is dedicated and in a no wait state.Infor ION BI OLAP stores its loaded data in RAM, and therefore a major requirement is fast RAM ofsufficient quantity. Running with less RAM than recommended will adversely impact performance.Server(s)OLAP Server - Minimum 6-12 cores running at 3Ghz + - Minimum 8GB DDR3 RAM - Minimum 50GB hard drive space, CFMS recommend 100GB to allow for regular backups - TCP/IP networking - Windows Server 2012 64 bit or Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit with Service Pack 2 (Standard, Enterprise and Data Centre Editions)Please note that these are minimum requirements and your exact needs should be discussed withCFMS. Database size increases over time can require extra RAM so CFMS recommend a server thatcan expand in this area; likewise particularly complex processing rules may require more processorpower. Dashboarding will also increase server load. As such, the above should be treated as astarting point.Web Services and the SQL Repository can run on the same machine as the OLAP Server, dependingon requirements. This is not recommended, but if this path is chosen higher system requirementswill be necessary to ensure performance – please discuss with CFMS.

  2. 2. CFMS Infor ION BI hardware and software requirementsInfor ION BI Version 10.4.xUpdated 27th February 2013SQL RepositoryAn instance of SQL Server is required to store user rights information, Application Studio reportdefinitions and any Office Plus reports saved to the repository. This may be on an existing SQLServer in the organisation, but CFMS recommend a separate instance of SQL Server allowingmanagement of the process separately if required.Supported versions are: - Microsoft SQL Server 2012 with Service Pack 1 (Express, Standard or Enterprise) - Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 with Service Pack 2 (Express, Standard or Enterprise)CFMS recommend at least 50GB of disk space on the SQL Server, however the SQL database itselfwill typically be between 150MB and 5GB.Users of the optional Consolidation module will need higher performance from their SQL Server andin this instance it is strongly recommended to have a SQL Server instance on a separate machine tothe OLAP Server.Application Studio Web ServicesThis server is required if you wish to access Application Studio through a browser. It can initiallyreside on the same server as the OLAP Server but CFMS will likely recommend a separate serverdepending on user load, number of reports and screens.The hardware and software requirements are the same as for OLAP Server, plus: - A minimum of 70MB free RAM per web instance (logged in user) - A fast network connection (100Mbit+) to SQL Repository and OLAP Server - IIS installed on an NTFS partition Corporate Financial Management Systems Trafalgar House, Grenville Place, London NW73SA Tel 020 8959 0041 - Fax 020 8959 0052
