Products Hardware Requirements

Hello to everyone.

 

I have a simple question. I've already read all the documents about Requirements, but I can't find the HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS of some of your Product. Can you write it them to me? (The last version of the Products, the RAM, CPU, HDD)

 

- Sas Enterprise Guide

- Sas Base

- Sas Data Integration Studio

- Sas OpRiskVar

 

Thank you very much

Hi,

 

which Operating system and platform (32bit or 64bit) are we speaking about?

 

http://support.sas.com/resources/sysreq/index.html 

 

Last version of the products you can find it on the overview of the product, e.g, for SAS EG: http://support.sas.com/software/products/guide/index.html

64 Bit with Windows 7.

On your first Link I got this message:

We're sorry, we cannot complete your request.

And this one?

somehow after "sysreq\" there should not be "index.htm"

Since you are referring to Enterprise Guide, which is Windows-only, your target platform seems to be Windows.

You will want a 64-bit Windows 7 or 8 with enough RAM to run a Java-based application, which any recent desktop computer should have.

More RAM is nice to have if the datasets that you operate on are large.

You should also consider to get SSDs instead of rotating spindles. At least for the WORK and utility locations.

Windows 10 is certified by SAS with the current maintenance release of SAS 9.4 only.

This is probably obvious, but the "requirements" are also site dependent. My current site may need all the functionality below, but the data is small. 

 

At another place, we had servers and desktop installs, with multiple servers for dev, prod, staging, and a special analytics server for EM. 

 

You really should talk to the SAS Sales to help you determine what you need.
