  • 32 ports HD 360p


TS Sizing and Co-residency

For co-residency with other Cisco Collaboration apps, TS follows all of the standard virtualization sizing and co-residency rules (click here).  Due to the large vcpu footprint of the TS VM, this means co-residency will be limited to higher-density servers with many total physical server cores.


If vTS is the only application on an ESXi host, and the hardware matches requirements in tables above, then the following deployments are also allowed:

  • One 12 HD port VM per physical ESXi host
  • or Two 8 HD port VMs per physical ESXi host

In the above deployment models, vTS is using physical CPU oversubscription via hyperthreading and deploying 1 vcpu to 1 Logical Core.  Note: Recall that none of the other Cisco Collaboration apps support physical CPU oversubscription and are required to deploy 1 vcpu to 1 physical core even when hyper-threading is enabled in the physical CPU / BIOS.
