Qlikview / Qliksense Environment Architecture

Hi all,

I am designing a mixed Qlikview Qliksense Clustered Enviroment for a customer and i need your comments/feedback.

So basically there will be 4 machines .

1. QVServer 1

2. Qvserver 2

3. QVWS,QVPublisher 1, Qliksense Server1

4. QVWS, QVPublisher 2, Qliksense Server2.

QVServer 1 and 2 will be Clustered.

The same applies for QVPublisher 1 and 2 and also Qliksense 1 and 2.

My main concern is storage. The main model size will be 100gb approx.

So my sollution is (OS = operating system, VM = virtual memory)

QVS1. 100gb +OS +VM storage

QVS2. OS +VM storage

QVPub1 --> 100GB+ 100GB for reloads + 75 GB for QVD files. +os +vm storage +100gb for qliksense

QVPub2--> OS +VM storage

Qlikview server 1 will share the storage with QVServer 2

Publisher 1 will do the same with publisher 2

The same applies for Qliksense

Need your comments regarding the architecture in general, as well as the suggested storage architecture.

Furthermore , does any of you have any info to share regarding licenses required to build a Qliksense CLustered Server?

Thank you

In general not recommended to load such a huge data even after clustered.

Because if we load such a huge data and if the end users are more then it will take so much of time to see/drill down reports and dashboards.

Instead there are many techniques like splitting data/QVD based on some years


loop and reduce option so that the front end dashboard will be much easier to reload and drill downs can be done easily.

Customer wants entire ungrouped dataset loaded in single file. I am aware of those techniques and best practices and i am preparing demos that i can show him on live environment. My main concern now is the architecture.
