May I know what is the recommended hardware spec? I would like to run CUBE on Google Cloud. Appreciate any pointers, thanks.
Below is a screenshot of the CUBE Voyager minimum system requirements for our latest version, CUBE CE. If you are currently a user of Bentley, you can download CONNECTION Client and from there, download CUBE CE. Can you clarify what capabilities you are looking for?
Thanks, my customer is currently running CUBE on-prem and would like to move it to Cloud to have more elastic resources. We would like to know what are the systems requirements so that we can preparing the costing accordingly. Also the customer would like to reduce the time to run a model simulation, could we run multiple instances of CUBE to parallel process the job? If there is any architectural doc / guidance will be great.
It is possible to run multiple instances of CUBE in one machine or location where the license is directed to. However, if you run multiple instances on multiple machines/servers, take care you do not exceed the number of licenses you have purchased. For parallel processing, it is possible if you have CUBE Cluster. With our latest version, CUBE CE, it includes Cluster already so your client would be able to implement parallel processing. For Cluster and parallel processing guidance, please look at this link from our Wiki: https://communities.bentley.com/products/citilabs-cube/w/cube-streetlytics-wiki/47231/cluster.
If you have further questions on cost, please let me know and I can provide contact information of the right person.
