  • Introduction
    This document is a provisional and interim sizing guide for the appropriate sizing of hardware environments ready for the deployment of the QAD Business Intelligence product—QAD BI version 3.6 and above.
    Provisional. A formal sizing guide is normally produced after a detailed capacity planning analysis involving a series of formal internal sizing/scalability/performance testing. The sizing estimates in this document are provisional in the sense that they have been produced in the absence of a formal capacity planning process.
    Interim. This sizing guide can be considered an interim sizing guide until a formal capacity planning testing process can be carried out for QAD BI.
    Practical Sizing. However, at the time of publication, the sizing estimates in this guide are the most accurate available to QAD. Use this document for practically sizing BI deployments.
    Caveats to BI Sizing. Although the sizing estimates given here are the best available, the absence of a formal capacity planning process means that certain estimates in this document may need to be updated as more accurate information becomes available. Carry out the sizing bearing in mind all the caveats listed under the following topic.
    This document covers sizing for the server-side BI components. It does not comment on client-side BI Portal (browser-based) sizing requirements.
