Data center requirements
Automation Anywhere Enterprise is deployed on servers in a data center. This topic lists the data center requirements and provides links to full descriptions of each requirement.
Click the list item to view additional information. If you are deploying to an Enterprise production environment Automation Anywhere is deployed across multiple servers in both High Availability and Disaster Recovery configurations for maximum data protection and bot functionality. The following describes the data center configuration requirements.
- Database requirements
- For Oracle Database, one instance of the database with two separate schemas of the same database are required. For Microsoft SQL Server, two databases on the same instance of the database server are required. View the list of supported databases, database server type, version, hardware, and operating system requirements, and database backup and recovery requirements.
- Working with SQL Servers
- Configure Microsoft SQL Servers before setting up the Control Room database.
- Load balancer requirements
- View the load balancer requirements for Automation Anywhere installation. This includes load balancer minimums, and both TCP and HTTPS layer load balancing requirements.
- Control Room ports, protocols, and firewall requirements
- View the default and configurable firewall, port, and protocol requirements for Automation Anywhere deployment.
- Version control requirements
- Optionally, install a version control system (VCS) suitable to your environment, enable the installed VCS for a repository from the Control Room and use the version control features using the respective Enterprise Client.
- Supported browsers
- Supported browsers are used to access the Control Room. In the Enterprise Client, build bots with tasks that use a supported browser. Automation Anywhere Enterprise provides browser-specific plug-ins.
- Capacity and performance planning
- To plan your deployment capacity and performance, understand the requirements, limits, and defaults that determine the number of simultaneous bots, user sessions, and processing rates.
- HA, DR, and single-node deployments
- Identify your key requirements before selecting
a deployment model. Automation Anywhere Enterprise offers multiple deployment options to meet
various levels of enterprise cost/price performance and resiliency needs. This includes
installation on single-nodes, Highly Available (HA) clusters at single locations, and Disaster Recovery (DR) across
geographically separated sites.
- High Availability deployment model
- The High Availability (HA) deployment model provides failure tolerance for the Control Room servers, services, and databases.
- Disaster Recovery deployment model
- The Disaster Recovery (DR) deployment model uses High Availability (HA) clusters distributed over a geographic area.
