Note:
  • The virtual CPUs require a minimum speed of 2.3 GHz with hyper-threading support, Virtualization Technology (VT), and 64-bit architecture.

  • The virtual disk requires a minimum size of 200 GB.

  • For VMware ESXi deployments, Service Gateway only supports the VMXNET3 network adapter with a minimum speed of 1000 Mb/s.

  • System requirements for services do not include firmware. When estimating requirements, add firmware to the services you want to use.

    For example, the minimum system requirements for a virtual appliance with ActiveUpdate is 3 virtual CPUs (2 + 1) and 6 GB virtual memory (4 + 2) in total.
