Requesting information on APIC-CLUSTER-XS

Hello all,

In the APIC Data Sheet I see an APIC-CLUSTER-XS listed - basically an "extra small" APIC cluster with 1 physical M3 APIC and 2 virtual APIC's.

However I can't find any documentation that discusses this deployment and what it would look like in terms of required infrastructure for the virtual APIC's, how many Leafs/edge ports it would support, etc.

Could someone please point me in that direction (if that documentation exists) ? The price is good compared to a regular M3 cluster but I would be interested to know what I would need to run the virtual APIC's and any potential risks/caveats of implementing this type of "extra small" APIC cluster.

Thanks!

ACI mini will support a max of 4 leaf switches. Port count isn't a factor.

@Robert Burns ah ok excellent. Thank you! For the virtual APIC's, can I run those on any virtual infrastructure I have, or where do those virtual APIC's need to reside? And is there any documentation on standing up an XS cluster?

Only VMware is supported currently for virtual APIC hosting.
