Notes:

  • These minimum requirements are based on a typical fixed line workload running on a lightly contended virtualised
    platform.
  • We advise against the use of SSDs as the sustained write workload leads to a very short lifespan.
  • We recommend the use of high quality Intel server NICs.
  • Performance of SwiftCache Lite is dependent on the load on your VM Infrastructure.
