DSS must be installed on a Linux x86-64 server.
The following Linux distributions are fully supported, in 64-bit version only:
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server, version 7.3 and later 7.x
- CentOS, version 7.3 and later 7.x
- Ubuntu Server, versions 16.04 LTS and 18.04 LTS
- Debian, versions 8.x and 9.x
- Oracle Linux, version 7.3 and later 7.x
- Amazon Linux, version 2017.03 and later (tested up to version 2018.03)
- Amazon Linux 2 (experimental support)
- SuSE 12 SP2 and later
The following Linux distributions are supported, in 64-bit version only, but are NOT recommended for new installations, as their base platform are outdated and may pose compatibility problems with future evolutions of DSS:
- CentOS, version 6.8 and later 6.x
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server, version 6.8 and later 6.x
- Oracle Linux, version 6.8 and later 6.x
These distributions should be up-to-date with respect to Linux patches and updates.
Running on a system with Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) in enforcing mode is not supported.
A minimum of 16 GB of RAM is required. More RAM will be required if you intend to load large datasets in memory (for example in the Jupyter notebook component), or for accomodating more users.
The hard limit on the maximum number of open files for the Unix user account running DSS should be at least 65536 (
ulimit -Hn). For very large DSS instances, larger values may be required.
The hard limit on the maximum number of user processes for the Unix user account running DSS should be at least 65536 (
ulimit -Hu). For very large DSS instances, larger values may be required.
The en_US.utf8 locale must be installed.
The filesystem on which DSS is installed must be POSIX compliant, case-sensitive, support POSIX file locks and symbolic links.
If DSS is to be installed in multi-user security mode, the filesystem containing the data directory must support POSIX access control lists (ACLs). In particular, it is not possible to host the DSS data directory on a NFSv4 remote filesystem in multi-user-security mode, as NFSv4 ACLs are different from, and not compatible with POSIX ACLs.
The macOS version is only available for experimentation and evaluation purpose, it is not supported for production usage
DSS can be installed on macOS version 10.10 (Yosemite) up to 10.13 (High Sierra).
8 GB of RAM is required. More RAM can be required if you intend to load large datasets in memory (for example in the IPython notebook component).
Dataiku DSS is accessed over a Web browser.
The following browsers are supported:
- Chrome (latest version)
- Firefox (latest ESR version)
Chrome and Adblock Plus users
Adblock Plus on Chrome is known to cause serious performance issues when using Data Science Studio. It is highly recommended that you add the hostname on which Data Science Studio is deployed to the list of “allowed domains” in Adblock Plus
Data Science Studio makes use of WebSockets technology. If a proxy is used between the user’s browser and the Data Science Studio server, the proxy must support WebSockets. In case of doubt, it is recommended not to use any proxy between the browser and the Data Science Studio server.
