Skype for Business Cloud Connector Edition VM data size RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the needed data size of the VM store?

    The listed Requirements are not that clear and I think of using 1 SSD or 1 PCI-E ssd to host the images with base os + image backup on it's own disk.

    It will help to know how much hdd is needed.

  • Hi Joe,

    Welcome to post in our forum.

    Based on my research, the necessary hardware to support installation of the 4 VMs for each Cloud Connector Edition in your deployment.

    The following configurations are recommended:
    64-bit dual processor, six core (12 real cores), 2.50 gigahertz (GHz) or higher
    64 gigabytes (GB) ECC RAM 
    Four 600 GB (or better) 10K RPM 128M Cache SAS 6Gbps disks, configured in a RAID 5 configuration
    Three 1 Gbps RJ45 high throughput network adapters

    If you choose to deploy the smaller version of Cloud Connector Edition that supports up to 50 simultaneous calls, you will need the following hardware:
    Intel i7 4790 quad core with Intel 4600 Graphics (no high end graphics needed)
    32 GB DDR3-1600 non ECC
    2: 1TB 7200RPM SATA III (6 Gbps) in RAID 0
    2: 1 Gbps Ethernet (RJ45)

  • I was looking for more info about the data size does this really need 2TB of storage?? or just raid 0 do to the speed?

    Also 1 pci-e ssd card is a lot faster then raid 0 and has less risk then raid 0. Also plan to have the base os on it's own disk. I just want to know if an 500GB is ok or do I need an 900-1TB one?

  • Yes but how much space does it need? An enterprise 512GB ssd pci-e costs a lot less then an 1TB one.

    But if I need 2TB then it's 2 1TB sdd's raid 0 or maybe 1 2TB one. Better to have 1 fast disk vs raid 0
