Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0

       Hi,

If one choose to go for the Hardware Applicance, I noticed there are no parameters to choose for the sizing of the device (performance) . In other words will a HW appliance be able to support no matter the number of installed licenses without loosing performancy?

Or do you recommend to choose the sofware appliance where depending on the number of installed licenses on can increase the number of CPU and HDD.

What is the limitation of number of supported devices when choosing the HW appliance and still have a performant management system?

Regards

Jan

Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.0

The hardware appliance meets the requirements for the Standard tier of Prime Infrastructure 2.0. See the note at the bottom of Table 3 here.

That table also lists all the recommended maximum management characteristics for the various tiers. One of the biggest determining factors is the Netflow flows/second being received and processed.

I prefer the soft appliance because it is generally easier to increase resources in that environment. I have seen larger enterprises without a good linkage between the network and server organizations run contrary to that general assertion though.
