Introduction

Note Note: Unless specifically indicated otherwise, references to UCS B-Series includes both UCS Mini and regular UCS 5100 Series Blade Server Chassis. UCS Mini is allowed as long as the UCS B-Series and C-Series servers in UCS Mini conform to Collaboration support policies.

Note Note: Not all UC apps support all hardware options. For supported options, check the application's page in At a Glance table of www.cisco.com/go/uc-virtualized

This web page describes supported compute, storage and network hardware for Virtualization of Cisco Unified Communications, including UC on UCS (Cisco Unified Communications on Cisco Unified Computing System). See the "How to..." links on www.cisco.com/go/uc-virtualized for guidelines on how to design, quote and procure a virtualized UC solution that follows Cisco's support policy.

Cisco uses three different support models:

  • UC on UCS Tested Reference Configuration (TRC), some of which are available as packaged collaboration solutions like Cisco Business Edition 6000 or Cisco Business Edition 7000.
  • UC on UCS Specs-based
  • Third-party Server Specs-based


"TRC" used by itself means "UC on UCS Tested Reference Configuration (TRC)". "UC on UCS" used by itself refers to both UC on UCS TRC and UC on UCS Specs-based.
"Specs-based" used by itself refers to the common rules of UC on UCS Specs-based and Third-party Server Specs-based. 

Below is a comparison of the hardware support options. Note that the following are identical regardless of the support model chosen:

  • Virtual machine (OVA) definitions
  • VMware product, version and feature support
  • VMware configuration requirements for UC
  • Application/VM Co-residency policy (specifically regarding application mix, 3rd-party support, no reservations / oversubscription, virtual/physical sizing rules and max VM count per server).

Cisco Business Edition Servers and UC on UCS Tested Reference Configurations

Note Note:

Definition of a Tested Reference Configuration (TRC):

  • Includes specification of server model and local components (CPU, RAM, adapters, local storage) at the orderable part number level.
    • For UCS B-Series servers, does NOT include specification of blade server chassis or switching.
    • For UCS E-Series servers, does NOT include specification of Cisco Integrated Server Router (ISR) chassis unless purchased as part of a Cisco Business Edition 6000S appliance.
  • For TRCs using DAS storage, includes specification of required RAID configuration (e.g. RAID5, RAID10, etc.) - including battery backup cache or SuperCap.
  • Includes guidance on hardware installation and basic setup (full Cisco UCS installation documentation is on http://www.cisco.com/go/ucs and is the authoritative source).
    • Does not include specification of virtual-to-physical network interface mapping as this is design-dependent.
    • Does not include specification of adapter settings (such as Cisco VIC, 3rd-party CNA / NIC / HBA) as this is design-dependent.
    • Does not include configuration settings or step by step procedures for hardware BIOS, firmware, drivers, RAID setup outside the guidance in the Cisco Collaboration on Virtual Servers document. See the Cisco UCS documentation at www.cisco.com/go/ucs for these details.
  • Does not include Design, installation and configuration of external hardware such as:
    • Network routing and switching (e.g. routers, gateways, MCUs, ethernet/FC/FCoE switches, Cisco Catalyst/Nexus/MDS, etc.)
    • QoS configuration of route/switch network devices
    • Cisco UCS B-Series chassis and switching components (e.g. Cisco UCS 6100/6200, Cisco UCS 2100/2200, Cisco UCS 5100)
    • Storage arrays (such as those from EMC, NetApp or other vendors)
  • Does not include configuration settings, patch recommendations or step by step procedures for required VMware virtualization software.

VMware Requirements

VMware virtualization software is required for Cisco TAC support.

  • See the Introduction for basic virtualization software requirements, including what is optional and what is mandatory.
  • For Cisco UCS, no UC applications run or install directly on the server hardware; all applications run only as virtual machines. Cisco UC does not support a physical, bare-metal, or nonvirtualized installation on Cisco UCS server hardware.

All UC virtualization deployments must align with the VMware Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).

All UC virtualization deployments must follow UC rules for supported VMware products, versions, editions and features as described here.

Note Note: For UC on UCS Specs-based and Third-party Server Specs-based, use of VMware vCenter is mandatory, and Statistics Level 4 logging is mandatory. Click here for how to configure VMware vCenter to capture these logs. If not configured by default, Cisco TAC may request enabling these settings in order to troubleshoot problems.


"Can I use this server?"

UC virtualization hardware support is most dependent on the Intel CPU model and the VMware Hardware Compatibility List (HCL).


The server model only matters in the context of:

  • whether or not it is on the VMware HCL
  • what Intel CPU models does it carry (and are those CPU models allowed for UC virtualization)
  • can its hardware component options satisfy all other requirements of this policy
  • For additional considerations, see TAC TechNote 115955.

Note Note:
  • UC does not support every CPU model
  • A given server model may not carry every (or any) CPU model that UC supports.
  • Therefore your server model choices may be artificially limited by which CPUs the server models carry.

UC on UCS TRC UC on UCS Specs-based Third-Party Server Specs-based Not supported


Allowed Servers:
  • Vendors
  • Models / Generations
  • Form Factors

only Cisco Unified Computing System B-Series Blade Servers and C-Series Rack-mount Servers listed in Table 1 are supported.

  • Cisco UCS E-Series Blade Servers (E14x/16x on ISR router hardware) with CPUs that do not meet Processor policy requirements.
  • For additional considerations, please see TAC TechNote 115955.

Server or Component "Embedded Software"

  • BIOS
  • Firmware
  • Drivers

There are no UC-specific requirements.

UC apps will specify the required version of VMware vSphere ESXi. Customers should follow server vendor guidelines for what to use with this VMware version.

For Cisco UCS:

  • UCS Software or UCS Manager Software in UCS 6x00 hardware: use the latest recommended version for the VMware vSphere ESXi version
  • Other B-Series / C-Series BIOS, firmware, drivers: use the latest recommended version for the VMware vSphere ESXi version
  • If "Intel Virtualization Technology" BIOS option is available, UC recommends enabling.
  • If "Hyper-threading" BIOS option is available (and the CPU supports hyper-threading), UC recommends enabling.
    • Note that the resultant "Logical Cores" do not factor into UC sizing rules for co-residency. UC still requires mapping one physical core to one vcpu core (not to one "Logical Core").


Mechanical and Environmental
Note Note: Energy-saving features that cause reduction in CPU performance or real-time relocation/powering-down of virtual machines (such as CPU throttling or VMware Dynamic Power Management) are not supported.

Otherwise, there are no UC-specific requirements for form factor, rack mounting hardware, cable management hardware, power supplies, fans or cooling systems. Follow server vendor guidelines for these components.

If you use a Cisco UCS bundle SKU, note that the rail kit, cable management and power supply options may not match what is available with non-bundled Cisco UCS.

Redundant power supplies are highly recommended, particularly for UC on UCS.

For Cisco UCS, it is strongly recommended to use the Cisco default rail kit, unless you have different rack types such as telco racks or racks proprietary to another server vendor. Cisco does not sell any other types of rack-mounting hardware; you must purchase such hardware from a third party.




Processors / CPUs

Allowed vs. Supported CPU policies are different for UC on UCS Tested Reference Configuration, UC on UCS Specs-based and 3rd-party Server Specs-based.

Read the notes and BOTH CPU tables below to understand these support policy differences before locking in CPU parts choices.


Note Note:
  • If an application has application-specific rules on its page on www.cisco.com/go/uc-virtualized, that rule takes precedence over this policy. Check EVERY app that will share a physical server before finalizing CPU choice.
  • CPU architectures are NOT allowed for Specs-based until explicitly listed below. Until listed below, they are not allowed, even if believed to be "better" since "newer".
  • Some CPU architectures, or CPU models within an architecture/family, are not a good fit for Collaboration requirements and will NEVER be allowed or listed below. Do not assume that all CPU architectures, or all models with an architecture, will be allowed.
  • Collaboration application support for new CPU architectures/models may lag the release date from Intel and/or server vendors.
  • Collaboration applications require minimum physical core speeds on allowed CPU architectures (normal not turbo). Higher capacity VM configurations will usually require higher minimum physical core speeds. Expect these speeds to be higher than what is required for many traditional business applications. Speeds need to be what is shown at ark.intel.com in the CPU model's description, or for Cisco UCS in the description of the CPU SKU. This is normal speed not "turbo". This speed may not be what is actually returned by running software such as OS CLIs.
  • Slower-speed CPUs categorized as "Restricted UC Performance" are only allowed for certain VM configurations of certain Collaboration apps, and they are usually lower capacity points of those applications. Do not assume large capacity VMs are allowed on slow-speed CPUs.
  • Physical CPU choices for UC on UCS Tested Reference Configurations are stricter. They are a subset of what is allowed for Specs-based. See CPU Table 2.
  • Physical CPUs shipping as part of a Packaged Collaboration Solution like Cisco Business Edition may not be changed.

CPU Table 2 - Additional TRC and Specs-based rules for CPU


UC on UCS TRC UC on UCS Specs-based Third-party Server Specs-based Not supported


Physical Sockets / CPU Quantity must exactly match what is listed in TRC Table 1. Customer choice (subject to what server model allows).

The following CPUs are NOT supported for UC:

  • Intel CPUs that are IN one of the supported architectures/families, but do NOT meet minimum physical core speeds, are not supported for UC.
  • Unlisted Intel CPU architectures/families (such as Intel Xeon 6500, E5-16xx, Core-i7, etc.) are NOT supported for UC. An Intel CPU architecture is not supported for UC unless listed in CPU Table 1.
  • Other CPU vendors such as AMD are not supported for UC.


Cisco TAC is not obligated to troubleshoot UC app issues when deployed on unsupported hardware.



Physical CPU Vendor and CPU model

Must either exactly match the TRC BOM's CPU model in TRC Table 1 or use a CPU model that satisfies the following requirements:

  • Same physical CPU core count as the TRC BOM's CPU model in Table 1.
  • Same CPU architecture as the TRC BOM's CPU model in Table 1.
  • Physical CPU core speed same or higher than that of the TRC BOM's CPU model in Table 1.

E.g. if the TRC BOM was tested with 2-socket Intel Xeon E5-2680 v1 (SandyBridge, 8-core, 2.7 GHz), then substition of a pair of any other E5-2600 v1 with 8 cores and speed 2.7 Ghz or higher would be allowed and the server is still a TRC.  Subsitition with E5-2600 v2 or v3 would NOT be a TRC due to different architecture, and would make the server UC on UCS Specs-based.

See app links in table on http://www.cisco.com/go/uc-virtualized or Supported Applications for which CPU Types are allowed for a given VM configuration of a UC app. E.g. the Unified Communications Manager 7500 user VM configuration is only allowed on a Full UC Performance CPU.


Total physical CPU cores

Total available is fixed based on the CPU models in TRC Table 1.

Total available depends on which CPU model customer chooses vs. the physical server's socket count and the CPU model selected.


Total required is based on:

Per these policies, recall that physical CPU cores may not be over-subscribed for UC VMs

  • I.e. one physical CPU core must equal one VM vCPU core.
  • Hyper-threading on the CPU should be enabled when available, but the resulting Logical Cores do not change UC app rules. UC rules are based on 1:1 mapping of physical cores to vcpu, not Logical Cores to vcpu.


Cisco TAC is not obligated to troubleshoot UC app issues in deployments with insufficient physical processor cores or speed.



Memory / RAM

Note Note: Virtualization software licenses such as Cisco UC Virtualization Foundation or VMware vSphere limit the amount of total vRAM that can be used (and therefore the amount of physical RAM that can be used for UC VMs, due to UC sizing rules). See Unified Communications VMware Requirements for these limits. In general larger deployments, or deployments with high VM counts, will require very high vRAM totals and will therefore need to use VMware vSphere instead of Cisco UC Virtualization Foundation. If using high-memory-capacity servers, use VMware vSphere instead to ensure use of all physical memory.

UC on UCS TRC Specs-based (UCS or 3rd-party Server)
Physical RAM Total available is listed in Table 1. Additional memory may be added. Total available depends on the server chosen.

Total required is dependent on the virtual machine quantity/size mix deployed on the hardware:

Memory Module/DIMM Speed and Population

For what was tested in a TRC, see Table 1.

Follow server vendor guidelines for optimum memory population for the memory capacity required by UC.

  • For Cisco UCS, use the Specs Sheets at UCS Quick Catalog. E.g. for a UCS B200 M3 with 96GB total RAM, optimal is 4x8GB DIMM + 4x4GB DIMM. Using 6x16GB DIMM is not optimal.

Otherwise, there are no UC-specific requirements (primarily because UC does not support memory oversubscription).

  • UC allows any DIMM speed (e.g. 1333 MHz, 1600 MHz, etc.).
  • UC allows any memory hardware module size, density and quantity (including changing the DIMM population on a Tested Reference Configuration) as long as UC-required RAM capacity is met, and the server vendor supports the intended memory configuration.

Storage

To be supported for UC, all storage systems - whether TRC or specs-based - must meet the following requirements:

  • Compatible with the VMware HCL and compatible with the supported server model used
  • Host-level kernel disk command latency < 4ms (no spikes above) and physical device command latency < 20 ms (no spikes above). For NFS NAS, guest latency < 24 ms (no spikes above)
  • Published vDisk capacity requirements of UC VMs.
  • See VM specs of application pages in At a Glance table on http://www.cisco.com/go/uc-virtualized
  • For DAS-only TRCs (including Cisco Business Edition 6000, Thin Provisioning (either from VMware or from storage array) is not supported. Thick provisioning must be used.
  • For diskless TRCs and any Specs-based server, thin provisioning (either from VMware or from storage array) is allowed with the caveat that disk space must be available to the VM as needed. Running out of disk space due to thin provisioning will crash the application and corrupt the virtual disk (which may also prevent restore from backup on the virtual disk).
  • Published IOPS capacity requirements of UC VMs (including excess capacity provisioned to handle IOPS spikes such as during Cisco Unified Communications Manager upgrades).
  • Other storage system design requirements (click here).

Note Note: UC on UCS TRCs using only DAS storage (such as C220 M3S TRC#1) have been pre-designed and tested to meet the above requirements for any UC with UC co-residency scenario that will fit on the TRC. Detailed capacity planning is not required unless deploying
  • non-UC/3rd-party apps
  • VM OVA templates created later than the TRC
  • VM OVA templates with very large vDisks (300GB+).

Note Note: All of the above requirements must be met for Cisco UC to function properly. Except for UC on UCS TRCs using DAS only, it is the customer's responsibility to design a storage system that meets the above requirements. Cisco TAC is not obligated to troubleshoot UC app issues when customer-provided storage is insufficient, overloaded or otherwise not meeting the above requirements.


See below for supported storage hardware options.


UC on UCS TRC Specs-based (UCS or 3rd-party Server)
Supported Storage Options TRCs are only defined for:
  • DAS-only with UC-specified configuration (C260 M2, C240 M3S, C220 M3S, C210 M1/M2, C200 M2)
  • FC SAN with VMware local boot from DAS (B200 M1/M2, C210 M1/M2)
  • Diskless / boot from FC SAN (B440 M2, B230 M2, B200 M3, C210 M2)
  • DAS with customer-defined configuration (including local disks, external SAS, etc.)
  • FC, iSCSI, FCoE or Infiniband SAN
  • Diskless / boot from SAN via above transport options (only supported with VMware vSphere ESXi 4.1+ and compatible UC app versions). 
  • NFS NAS


DAS Support Details


UC on UCS TRC Specs-based (UCS or 3rd-party Server)
Disk Size and Speed

B-Series TRC
may use the disk size/speed listed in Table 1 BOMs, or any other orderable size/speed for the blade server (since local disks are only used to boot VMware).

C-Series TRC
Both must be same or higher than specs listed in Table 1.
E.g. for a TRC tested with 300 GB 10K rpm disks, then:

  • 300GB 15K rpm is supported (faster)
  • 146GB 10K rpm not supported (too small)
  • 7.2K rpm disk of any size not supported (too slow)

DAS is supported with customer-determined disk size, speed, quantity, technology, form factor and RAID configuration as long as:

  • compatible with the VMware HCL and compatible with the server model used
  • all UC latency, performance and capacity requirements are met. To ensure optimum UC app performance, be sure to use Battery Backup cache or SuperCap on RAID controllers for DAS.
TRC BOMs are updated as orderable disk drive options change. E.g. UCS C210 M2 TRC#1 was tested with 146GB 15K rpm disks, but due to 146GB disk EOL, the BOM now specifies 300GB 15K rpm disks (still supported as TRC since both size and speed are "same or higher" than what was tested).
Disk Quantity, Technology, Form Factor Must exactly match what is listed in Table 1. E.g. if the TRC was tested with ten 2.5" SAS drives, then that must be used regardless of disk size or speed.
RAID Configuration RAID configuration, including physical-to-logical volume mapping, must exactly match Table 1 and the RAID instructions in the document Cisco Collaboration on Virtual Servers here.


SAN / NAS Support Details

  • Applies to any TRC or Specs-based configuration connecting to FC, iSCSI, FCoE or NFS storage.
  • No UC requirement to dedicate arrays or storage groups to UC (vs. non-UC), or to one UC app vs. other UC apps.
  • The storage solution must be compatible with the server model used. E.g. for Cisco Unified Computing System: Cisco UCS Interoperability
  • The storage solution must be compatible with the VMware HCL. For example, refer to the “SAN/Storage” tab at http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-SearchBox&ie=&oe=
  • No UC requirements on disk size, speed, technology (SAS, SATA, FC disk), form factor or RAID configuration as long as requirements for compatibility, latency, performance and capacity are met. "Tier 1 Storage" is generally recommended for UC deployments. See the UC Virtualization Storage System Design Requirements for an illustration of a best practices storage array configuration for UC.
  • There is no UC-specific requirement for NFS version. Use what VMware and the server vendor recommend for the vSphere ESXi version required by UC.
  • Use of storage network and array "features" (such as thin provisioning or EMC Powerpath) is allowed.
  • Otherwise any shared storage configuration is allowed as long as UC requirements for VMware HCL, server compatibility, latency, capacity and performance are met.




Removable Media


UC on UCS TRC Specs-based (UCS or 3rd-party Server)
Boot from SD cards, USB flash or other
  • Not allowed or supported by Cisco for apps or VMware vSphere ESXi. TRCs are only validated as either boot from DAS or diskless boot from FC SAN depending on Table 1.
  • Note all current TRCs are either diskless blades or C-Series DAS/HDD. SD cards in C-Series TRCs are used for convenience to get the UCS utilities (like SCU and HUU), in lieu of a DVD drive.
  • Not allowed or supported by Cisco for apps. Must boot from DAS, SAN or NAS per Specs-based Storage requirements.
  • Allowed for VMware vSphere ESXi as long as supported by server vendor.  Cisco Collaboration apps do not test, validate or troubleshoot these boot methods - work with server vendor if boot issues.

Otherwise, there are no UC-specific requirements or restrictions. The different methods of installing UC apps into VMs can leverage the following distribution types of Cisco UC software:

  • Physical delivery of UC apps via ISO image file on DVD.
  • Cisco eDelivery of UC apps via email with link to ISO image file download.


IO Adapters, Controllers and Devices for LAN Access and Storage Access

All adapters used (NIC, HBA, CNA, VIC, etc.) must be on the VMware Hardware Compatibility List for the version of vSphere ESXi required by UC.

UC on UCS TRC Specs-based (UCS or 3rd-party Server)
Physical Adapter Hardware (NIC, HBA, VIC, CNA)
  • For UCS B-Series TRC
    • Adapter vendor/model/technology - either match the adapters listed in Table 1 BOMs or substitute with any other supported adapter for the blade server model (which adapter "should" be used is dependent on deployment, design and UC apps).
    • Adapter quantity may be one or two.
  • For UCS C-Series TRC:
    • must exactly match adapter vendor/model/technology (e.g. Intel i350 for 1GbE or QLogic QLE2462 for FC) listed in Table 1 BOMs.
    • Allowed NIC quantity must be same or higher than what is listed in Table 1 BOMs.
    • Allowed HBA/VIC/CNA quantity must exactly match Table 1 BOMs.
    • Any other changes are not allowed for a UC on UCS TRC, but are allowed for UC on UCS Specs-based.
  • Only the following I/O Devices are supported:
    • HBA for storage access
      • Fibre Channel – 2Gbps or faster
      • InfiniBand
    • NIC for LAN and/or shared storage access
      • Ethernet – 1Gbps or faste.  Includes NFS and iSCSI for storage access.
    • Cisco VIC or 3rd-party Converged Network Adapter for LAN and/or storage access
      • FCoE - 10Gbps or faster
    • RAID Controllers for DAS storage access
      • SAS
      • SAS SATA Combo
      • SAS-RAID
      • SAS/SATA-RAID
      • SATA
  • The customer is also responsible for configuring redundant devices on the server (e.g. redundant NIC, HBA, VIA or CNA adapters).
  • There are no UC restrictions on hardware vendors for I/O Devices other than that VMware HCL and the server vendor/model must be compatible with them and support them.


IO Capacity and Performance

In most cases detailed capacity planning is not required for LAN IO or storage access IO. TRC adapter choices have been made to accommodate the IO of all UC on UCS app co-residency scenarios that will fit on the TRC. For guidance on active vs. standby network ports, see the Cisco UC Design Guide] and QoS Design Considerations for Virtual UC with UCS
It is the customer's responsibility to ensure the external LAN and storage access meet UC app design requirements.

  • LAN access adapters must be able to accommodate the LAN usage of UC VMs (described in UC app design guides).
  • Storage access adapters must be able to accommodate the storage IOPS (described in the Storage section of this policy).

Cisco TAC is not obligated troubleshoot UC apps issues in a deployment with insufficient or overloaded I/O devices.


UC on UCS TRC Bills of Material (BOMs)

Note Note: Bundle SKUs for UC on UCS TRCs are listed in the UC on UCS section of Cisco Commerce Build and Price tool.

Do not assume that other UCS bundle SKUs on Cisco Commerce Build and Price can be used with UC on UCS. Before quoting one of these bundles, identify the BOM that it ships and see below:

  • If the bundle meets TRC requirements on this page, it may be quoted for UC on UCS TRC.
  • If the bundle does NOT meet TRC requirements but DOES meet Specs-based requirements, then it may be quoted for UC on UCS Specs-based only.
  • If the bundle does NOT meet TRC requirements and also does NOT meet Specs-based requirements, then it may NOT be quoted for UC on UCS at all without modification.
