Single Server Sizing
The following describes hardware and sizing configuration for common Redcell Synergy deployments. Before any deployment, administrators should review and understand the different deployment options and requirements. Consider future growth of the network when estimating hardware sizing. You can generally expand modern systems running Redcell Synergy by adding more RAM to the host server(s). Selecting expandable hardware may also be critical to future growth. For ease of management, deployments selection best practice is to use the fewest possible servers. Standalone (single server) deployment offer the simplest and easiest management solution. Where high availability (HA) is required, you can produce the simplest deployment with as few as two servers.
The minimum hardware specification describes what Redcell Synergy needs at a minimum. In such minimum installations, traffic flowing from the network to Redcell may exceed the capacity of the hardware. When estimating the size of a deployment, it is important to understand the applications configurations in the target environment. Applications that are typically the most demanding of resources are Traffic Flow Analyzer (TFA), Event Management and Performance Monitoring.
REQUIRED Minimum hardware -- 6GB RAM, dual core CPU, 200 GB 7200 RPM Disk.
• Standalone installations (Single Server) is supported when high-resource demand applications are used minimally.
• Distributed installation of a single component server like application server only, Mediation server only , database server only or web server only.
RECOMMENDED Minimum hardware: 8GB RAM, quad core CPU, 400 GB 10,000 RPM Disk
• Standalone installations (non-distributed).
• Distributed installs with one or more servers.
