Notes on v4.1 Large VM configuration

This VM configuration only supported on certain hardware, and must be the only VM on the server:

  • Cisco Multiparty Media 400v

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v4.1 Medium VM configuration

This VM configuration must be the only VM on the server.

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v4.1 Small VM configuration

With BE6000M based on UCS M3 and Specs-based with the E5-2609, the capacity is lower.

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v4.0 Large VM configuration

This VM configuration only supported on certain hardware and must be the only VM on the server:

  • Cisco Multiparty Media 400v


For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v4.0 Medium VM configuration

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v4.0 Small VM configuration

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


Notes on v3.1 Medium VM configuration

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


See also vTS 3.1 special sizing and co-residency rules.


Notes on v3.1 Small VM configuration

For capacity information see the Data Sheet and Release Notes.


See also vTS 3.1 special sizing and co-residency rules.


v3.1 Sizing and Co-residency

When vTS 3.1 is co-resident with other Cisco Collaboration or allowed non-Collaboration/3rd-party apps, vTS 3.1 must follow all of the standard virtualization sizing and co-residency rules (click here)

When vTS 3.1 is the only application on an ESXi host, and the hardware matches requirements in tables above, then the following deployments are also allowed:

  • One Medium VM per physical ESXi host
  • or Two Small 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.
