Should Predictive Factory be installed on same server as Predictive Analytics Server?

Hello,

Should Predictive Factory be installed on the same server as SAP Predictive Analytics server? Why or why not? The SAP user guides seem to contradict on this.

The 'Survival Guide to Installing SAP Predictive Analytics for SAP HANA' in section 'Check Your SAP Predictive Factory System Requirements' states the following:

SAP Predictive Factory depends on a SAP Predictive Analytics Server and it is recommended that you install these two components side by side on the server machine. (https://help.sap.com/viewer/c27db6dddfb04b2e8a4e44ad1a14ffa1/3.3/en-US/dec205faf0dd43e19599c64b2163c545.html)

This while the 'Predictive Analytics Installation Guide' in section 'Installing Predictive Factory on Windows' - Prerequisites states the following:

It 's not recommended to install the Automated Analytics server on the same machine as Predictive Factory. (https://help.sap.com/viewer/14ac8516d3d549afb865198a9f0af246/3.3/en-US/5b2b7da0a21c408c9bf98aea5d4807f6.html)

Thanks,

József.

    Hello József, there is strictly no problem to install both components side by side on one single machine. I guess the important point to look for is sizing and making sure that the machine has the proper characteristics. Please refer to our PAM document for the same. I'll tell my documentation colleagues to fix the contradiction that you noted in the help.

    Kind regards,
