Choosing a WAE Central Manager

Hi,

If i want to choose a WAE Model to act as a Central Manager, what should i pay attention, beside the Number of Managed Devices ?

In Example:

I have 1 CM WAE-512-1G and 1 WAE-512-1G as "Core", 3 NME-WAE-302, 2 NME-WAE-502, and the client is expecting to grow to more 30 remote sites.

I'm planning to advise the client to upgrade the Core Appliance from WAE-512-1G to WAE-512-2G, or to buy a WAE-612-2GB, cause he's concerned with the Optimized TCP Connections limit.

If i change the WAE Core to a greater Model, should i change the CM WAE to ?

Best Regards,

Bruno Petrónio

Bruno,

It's basically just the number of managed devices. Most of what the CM does is push configs, replicate the stats and provide reporting. It's a very important piece of the infrastructure, however as long as the CM is within recommended device number, you should be fine.

Does the Central Manager have a a hard limit or does it depend on the device type ?

Re: Choosing a WAE Central Manager

Each device type configured as a Central Manager has a hard limit on the number of WAAS endpoint devices which it can support. Here are some guidelines for Number of Managed Devices per Central Manager appliance :

  • WAVE-274: 125 Devices
  • WAVE-474: 250 Devices
  • WAVE-574-3GB: 500 Devices
  • WAVE-574-6GB:1000 Devices
  • WAVE-674-4GB: 2000 Devices
  • WAVE-674-8GB: 2500 Devices
