What is the performance for each appliance for this solution?
How the solution scales in case of traffic growth?
What are VNF supported?

  • Each appliance has multiple 10Gb/ps links into the C9500s. It is feasible to get 10+Gb/ps out of the solution, but much of this depends on the VNF capabilities (i.e. how much RAM/CPU you've allocated and whether they are running OVS/SR-IOV).
  • At a minimum, the solution will have 2x CSP5444 and 2x C9500s. If necessary, you can add up to 6 more CSPs (total of 8 CSPs - 192 CPUs, 768GB RAM, 20TB Hard Disk).
  • Currently, we have certified Palo Alto, Checkpoint, Fortinet, Avi and are working on F5. However, the solution is based on KVM, so any KVM-capable image can run on it. We fully support 3rd party app integration. The list above simply shows which VMs we know work.
