Before continuing with this section, you should already have a working and tested Pentaho Business Analytics installation.
There are no operating system or hardware requirements beyond those implicit in specific performance-tuning tips. Requirements are listed on an individual basis for each tip.
For general Pentaho system requirements, please see Components Reference.
Note: It may be possible to use other versions of Pentaho Business Analytics, and other versions of the software mentioned in this section, such as Tomcat and Apache, but those configurations are untested. If you stray from the tested configuration, be prepared to dynamically modify the instructions in this section to accommodate your situation, and be warned that your Pentaho support representative may not be able to assist with your unsupported configuration.
