System requirements - Exinda Network Orchestrator

Exinda Network Orchestrator is available for deployment as a virtual appliance or a dedicated hardware appliance. The software on Exinda hardware appliances is the same as the virtual appliance. If the Exinda software detects that it is running under a hypervisor, certain optimizations are automatically enabled to ensure maximum performance.

Exinda Network Orchestrator VM Small Up to 150 Mbps Up to 50 Mbps Up to 10 Mbps
Exinda Network Orchestrator VM Medium Up to 1 Gbps Up to 500 Mbps Up to 20 Mbps
Exinda Network Orchestrator VM Large Up to 5 Gbps Up to 5 Gbps Up to 200 Mbps
Exinda Network Orchestrator VM Extra Large Up to 10 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps Up to 1 Gbps
Exinda Network Orchestrator VM Extra Extra Large Up to 15 Gbps Up to 15 Gbps Up to 1 Gbps

1 Storage at higher throughput will require higher disk I/O bandwidth, so the underlying storage should be RAID-based, ideally RAID 10.

This is a guide only: there are several factors that may mean more or less resources are required in individual environments. Factors that may have an effect include:

2 On the Extra Large and above, the number of CPUs depends on the licensed bandwidth for Diagnostics, Shaping, and Acceleration
