Notes on TMS 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.

Installation notes:

  • Install OS, Cisco TMS and SQL server on virtual disk 1
  • Install the database on virtual disk 2

This configuration supports:

  • 1000 direct managed systems
  • 40 MCU's and TelePresence servers
  • Supports Cisco TelePresence Provisioning extension

To fully utilize Cisco TMS an external Microsoft SQL server is required.
For more information see: Cisco TelePresence Management Suite Installation Guide

IOPS and Storage System Performance Requirements

This section provides the IOPS data for Cisco TelePresence Management Suite.

Test specifications:

  • Single C220 M3 TRC running ESXi 5.0.0 (update 1)
  • Processor supporting AESNI feature
  • 12GB of RAM
  • 200GB disk space ( 100GB virtual disk 1 and a 100GB 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)
