There are no special requirements for a Database Server.
EASA is a high-level programming language and EASAP's vary in their computational resource requirements. The requirements below are recommendations based on typical use cases.
An Excel Server requires the most computational resources, see EASA Hardware Requirements
The above requirements can be adjusted downward for 'low User number' or 'low complexity' EASA deployments.
We recommend using a well-supported, current distribution for running a Linux EASA Server.
For additional details see Configure a Compute Server
An EASAP will often utilize a 'live' Excel spreadsheet.
This type of EASAP requires at least one dedicated Excel process per simultaneous User, for a large or computationally intensive spreadsheet this requires significant CPU and memory.
In addition to the software requirements below, an Excel Server has very specific hardware requirements
EASA requires an Office feature called Visual Basic for Applications, found under 'Office Shared Features' in the feature tree when customizing the installation of Office.
EXPORT TO PDF requires Excel 2007 Service Pack 3 or later Excel version.
In all cases, the 32-bit installer of Excel must be used even when installing on a 64-bit operating system.
EASA supports only the English language version of Excel.
Disable automatic updates or do not update Excel once an Excel Server has been configured and is working correctly.
