    Is there a sizing guide with SAPS like for CPU and RAM on production server for Data services 4.1 available?  We are in process to implement Data Services 4.1 to extract data from ECC. Also we want to install both BO-BI Information Platform service and DS 4.0 on the same server.

    Would really appreciate if you could help me with some suggestions.

    Thank you,

  2. Hi Arindam,

    There is no sizing guide for any Data Services version as the hardware requirements will largely depend on your ETL requirements and design (and thus quality of your ETL developer). A Data Services Consultant can help estimate requirements based on their experience and specifics of your requirements. For optimal ETL design your ETL developers need to read and follow guidelines in the Performance Optimization Guide available among rest of SAP Data Services documentation at Good ETL design can often cut down memory and CPU requirements by more then half.

    Best regards,
