Notes on Small Conductor VM configuration

This VM configuration is only shipped with Cisco Business Edition 6000 or Cisco Business Edition 7000.

In version XC 2.3, it supports lower capacity/performance than the Cisco TelePresence Conductor Appliance (CTI-CNDTR-K9).


Notes on Conductor VM configuration

Testing was performed on a Cisco UCS C220 M3S platform. Based on evidence from this testing we do not expect there to be any issues with other supported hardware options.

For more information, see Cisco TelePresence Conductor Virtual Machine Deployment Guide.

Special note for version XC2.3

  • Physical CPU speed of 2.40+ GHz is required, 2.80+ GHz recommended.
  • Physical CPU speed of 2.80+ GHz is required for capacity/performance parity with the Cisco TelePresence Conductor Appliance (CTI-CNDTR-K9).
  • Slower physical CPU speeds are allowed with this VM, but with max capacity/performance same as the Small Conductor VM above used with Cisco Business Edition 6000 and Cisco Business Edition 7000.


IOPS and Storage System Performance Requirements

This section provides the IOPS data for a TelePresence Conductor system under load.


Test specifications:

  • Four individual TelePresence Conductor VMs running XC1.2
  • Single C220 M3 TRC running ESXi 5.0.0 (update 1)
  • Processor supporting AESNI feature
  • 6GB of RAM per VM
  • 132GB disk space per VM (for a 4GB virtual disk 1 and a 128GB virtual disk 2)
  • R2XX-LBBU (Raid disk battery backup to enable cache)
  • Four hard disks (450GB SAS 15K RPM 3.5in HDD/hot plug/C200 drive sled)
  • PCI card Intel Quad port GbE Controller (E1G44ETG1P20)
