Virtualization for Unified Contact Center Enterprise

Virtualization details below specify the supported third-party software (like VMware) and its versions. Support for these software versions and their interoperability depends on the release cycles (patches and upgrades) of the third-party software. For example, support for ESXi depends on VMware release cycles.

Notes on UCS Tested Reference Configuration and Specs-based Support

(top)

Cisco announces end of sale and end of life for: When the hardware support is specified as "Yes (See details)", the following exceptions exist, as applicable to the TRC or Specs-based policy referenced:
  • CCE 12.0 only provides spec-based support for HX240c M5SX.
  • For more information on Unified CCE oversubscription support policy for 12.0, see the Virtual Machines Resource Provisioning Policy section in the Contact Center Design Guide.


Co-residency Support Policy

(top)

Unified CCE

Unified CCE Co-residency policy is stated as Limited, though it may actually align to one of the other policies. This is due to IO limitations for Direct Attached Storage (DAS) arrays used with Unified CCE database applications.

Note: For any single DAS array, you can deploy only one of the following on any single array: Logger, Rogger, Progger, HDS, or CVP Reporting Server.

Unified CCE otherwise adheres to the following Co-residency policies by version:
Version Co-residency Policy
12.x Full
11.x Full
10.x Full
9.x Full

Remote Expert Mobile

Remote Expert Mobile can co-reside with other applications (VMs occupying same host) subject to the following conditions:

  • No oversubscription of CPU: 1:1 allocation of vCPU to physical cores must be used
  • No oversubscription of RAM: 1:1 allocation of vRAM to physical memory
  • Sharing disk storage
Note: Remote Expert Mobile must be installed on its own pair of Side A and Side B servers. It must not be installed co-resident on Packaged CCE Side A and Side B servers.


Notes on Megahertz (MHz) Sizing

(top)

Indicated MHz is in context of the Solution Design Guides for Cisco Unified Contact Center Enterprise and Solution Design Guides for Cisco Packaged Contact Center Enterprise. Please see those design guides for how to use this MHz information in Cisco-supported designs, or for more information.


IOPS and Storage System Performance Requirements

(top)

Unified CCE follows UC storage system design requirements. For more information, refer to UC Virtualization Storage System Design Requirements.

For information about TRC versus specs-based support for storage systems, refer to UC Virtualization Supported Hardware.

All Unified CCE VM vDisks must be deployed Thick Provisioned, Lazy, or Eager Zeroed. Thin Provisioned vDisks are not supported.

For IOPS information about CUIC, see CUIC IOPS information.

Storage Area Networks and Specs-based policy storage solutions must be able to handle the following Unified CCE application disk I/O characteristics. Tested Reference Configurations (TRC) for Cisco UCS C-Series servers do not need to apply these requirements against their Direct Attached Storage Arrays (DAS).
