|Accelerator for Social Data Analytics||CIF62EN|
|Accelerator for Telecommunications Event Data Analytics||CIF5SEN|
The system requirements list is the recommended hardware and software to install and run InfoSphere BigInsights per computer in a cluster that is dedicated to running BigInsights applications. Additional disk space might be required to store data for processing by InfoSphere BigInsights application workflows. Do not install on an existing Hadoop cluster or an existing Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) if you need to retain the original cluster and the HDFS data.
Verify your prerequisites before beginning your installation.

To install InfoSphere BigInsights Enterprise Edition:
- Extract the IBM InfoSphere BigInsights tar file (software_part_number.tar.gz) onto a supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) server or a supported SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) server, where software_part_number is the part number from Step 3 in the Download Description section above. The server where you want to start the installation procedure will be part of your cluster.
- Run the ./start.sh script from the root directory where you extracted the tar file. This script starts WebSphere® Application Server Community Edition on port 8300. The script provides you with a URL to the installation wizard, which is available at http://<yourserver>:8300/Install/, where yourserver is the server on which you extracted the tar file. Note that multiple URLs might be provided if the machine has multiple IP addresses; pick one that is accessible from your browser.
- If you are installing BigInsights Enterprise Edition with the Cloudera Hadoop distribution, run ./start.sh overlay1 to start the overlay installation after installing BigInsights.
To optionally install one of both of the accelerators, extract the .tar file and enter the following information:
- For IBM Accelerator for Machine Data Analytics:
- For Linux x86_64 (64-bit), enter ./mda_install_linux_x86_64.bin from the command line.
- For IBM POWER7 (64-bit), enter ./mda_install_linux_ppc.bin from the command line.
- For IBM Accelerator for Social Data Analytics:
- For Linux x86_64 (64-bit), enter ./sda_install_linux_x86_64.bin from the command line.
- For IBM POWER7 (64-bit), enter ./sda_install_linux_ppc.bin from the command line.
