UiPath Automation Suite

The UiPath Automation Suite Guide

Hardware and software requirements

This chapter lists out the requirements for setting up Automation Suite. It covers both single- and multi-node scenarios and provides details on both the suite as a whole and individual products.

The Automation Suite installer enables you to install all our server-side products in a single deployment.

Before preparing your environment for installation, you need to decide on the scale requirements based on the product selection and the expected usage.

This guide walks you through the steps to identify the hardware and software requirements as well as configure the infrastructure. Once you complete these steps, you can begin the Automation Suite installation.

 

Terminology


A node is defined as a machine in the cluster (bare metal or VM).

A server node is defined as a node running the cluster management server.

An agent node is defined as a node running the worker pods (the functional services).

📘

Note:

You can designate a node to work as both server and agent.

 

Single-node cluster


Everything installed on a single machine. Recommended for evaluation, developer, and demo scenarios.

Provisioning and configuring the infrastructure


📘

Quick steps for simple set-up in Azure and AWS

To provision and configure the infrastructure, you need the following:

Running the installation


Once you have the machine and SQL server provisioned and configured, you can run the installation.

During the installation, you need the following:

  • machine FQDN and admin credentials to connect to the machine
  • SQL Server FQDN and SQL server credentials

Additional configuration


Configuring certificates


Automation Suite uses two certificates:

  • SSL/TLS certificate
  • Token signing certificate

The installer automatically generates and configures a self-signed certificate that expires in 3 months.

📘

Note:

Using the automatically generated certificates generates a warning in the browser when navigating to the installed products.

We recommend replacing the automatically generated certificates with a certificate obtained from a trusted certificates authority.

For more on certificate configuration and access steps, see Configuring the certificates.

Provisioning a GPU


You have the option to provision a GPU for specific ML workloads.
