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.

Depending on the WAN bandwidth, use the following sizing guide to estimate the host resources required for each of the Exinda virtual appliances.
Note: For more information, consult the Exinda Virtualization Deployment Guide.

EXNV-4062 Up to 1 Gbps Up to 500 Mbps Up to 30 Mbps 4×2.4GHz 8GB 250GB
EXNV-6062 Up to 2.5 Gbps Up to 2.5 Gbps Up to 50 Mbps 6×2.0GHz 12GB 500GB
EXNV-8063 Up to 5 Gbps Up to 5 Gbps Up to 200 Mbps 8×2.0GHz 32GB 500GB
EXNV-10063 Up to 10 Gbps Up to 10 Gbps Up to 1 Gbps 12-242×2.0GHz 64GB 500GB

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:

  • Quality, speed, performance of the host CPUs
  • Quality and performance of host NICs
  • Host disk I/O bandwidth.

2 On the EXNV-10062, the number of CPUs depends on the licensed bandwidth for Diagnostics, Shaping, and Acceleration.


Software

  • VMware ESX/ESXi versions 5.5 and 6.0
  • Citrix XenServer versions: 5, 5.6, and 6.0
  • Microsoft Hyper-V Windows 2008 R2, 2012, and 2012 R2.
