* Users are defined as concurrent users of the system regardless of licenses.
Sisense recommends that your Sisense server meets or exceeds the minimum requirements listed above. The actual requirements of your Sisense server may vary depending on the number of concurrent users, builds running in parallel, ElastiCubes hosted on a server, and additional factors specific to your server, for example, non-Sisense applications running on the same server.
For optimal performance, Sisense recommends:
- No more than 40 ElastiCube on a single Sisense server
- No more than 4 concurrent builds at a time
- No more than 150 concurrent users
The formats for dates, times and numbers in your dashboards are based on your computer’s operating system or browser’s locale settings (depending on your browser).
Locales from the following countries are supported:
