None.


Notes on Medium VM configurations

(top)

Aligned SAS or SCSI drives required for deployments of this size.


Notes on Large VM configurations

(top)

Aligned SAS or SCSI drives required for App server.

Where SAN is used, FC SAS with aligned disks required for Database server for deployments of this size.

Both an "App Server" VM config and a "DB Server" VM are required.


Notes on Very Large VM configurations

(top)

Aligned SAS or SCSI drives required for App server.

Where SAN is used, FC SAS with aligned disks required for Database server for deployments of this size.

Both an "App Server" VM config and a "DB Server" VM are required.


IOPS and Storage System Performance Requirements

(top)

IOPS are per Unified CM Publisher synced in parallel. E.g. if only one Publisher synced at a time, then total IOPS are 100 average / 500 max. If two Publishers synced in parallel, then total IOPS are 200 average and 1000 max.

Max IOPS occur during nightly Infrastructrure or Subscriber syncs.

VM Configuration Average IOPS Max IOPS
Small (<1K devices) 100 500
Medium (1K to 10K devices) 100 500
Large App Server (10K to 100K devices) 100 500
Large DB Server (10K to 100K devices) 100 500
Very Large App Server (100K to 150K devices) 100 500
Very Large DB Server (100K to 150K devices) 100 500
