Unified IC can be installed as a standalone server or as a cluster of a maximum of eight server nodes. There is one mandatory publisher node (called the Controller) and a maximum of seven subscriber nodes (called Members). The Controller node includes a Member; thus a deployment can consist of a Controller only.
All nodes must meet latency requirements as described in the SRND.
The primary node (the Controller) includes both the Administration (Operations, Administration, Maintenance, and Provisioning or OAMP) and the Unified IC Reporting web applications. A Controller is required in all deployments. A deployment can consist of a Controller only.
The Member nodes have the Unified IC Reporting web application only.
Unified IC is installed on Cisco Unified Voice Operating System (VOS). This is an appliance model or "closed box" and does not support navigation into, or manipulation of, the file system.
Unified IC must be installed on Multimedia Communications Servers (MCS) or equivalent hardware, or a Virtual Machine running over UCS B-Series and C-Series Servers.
The disk capacity and hardware type of Member nodes should be equal to or greater than those of the Controller node.
Refer to the Cisco Unified Intelligence Center Hardware and System Software Specification (Bill of Materials) for server requirements and version compatibility.
