CVP Server Sizing

Answered Question
Aug 20th, 2008

The HW & SW Spec lists the MCS-7845-H2-CCE1 as a supported server for the Call Server and VXML server. However, the minimum requirements for each of those servers it says the following:

2 x 3.4GHz or greater Intel "Xeon" class processors

4096+ MB RAM

73+ GB usable disk space

Internal DVD-ROM drive

1 x 100/1000 Ethernet ports

According to those minimum requirements, the MCS-7845-H2-CCE1 servers don't even meet those requirements as it has 2 x 2.33GHz "Xeon" class processors.


Am I overlooking something.

The minimum requirement is for 2 single core processors, running at 3.4GHz. However, the newer servers are Dual core, which run at a slower speed, but deliver much better performance from the 2 cores.


The MCS-7845-H2 servers have 2 x Intel Xeon 5140 2.33-GHz CPUs, which are DUAL core Xeon processors, where each of the 4 processor cores run at 2.33GHz.


The MCS 7845-H1 servers have 2 x Xeon 3.4-GHz CPUs, which are SINGLE core Xeon processors, where each of the 2 processors runs at 3.4GHz.


The same is true for the IBM equivalent - I1 vs I2.
