1.18 Cisco MediaSense Virtualization and Platform Overlays

This topic describes the virtualization of Cisco MediaSense and the limitations per platform overlay.

Cisco MediaSense can be virtualized.

Node Type vCPU vRAM [GB] vDisk Audio Media Streams Nodes per Cluster
2vCPU Configuration Primary and Secondary Node 2 6 Disk 1: 80 GB for OS Disk 2: 80 (600) GB for Database and working storage Disk 3: 210 GB Minimum. Can be expanded to 12 TB. 40 2
4vCPU Configuration Primary and Secondary Node 4 8 200 2
7vCPU Configuration Primary, Secondary, or Expansion Node 7 16 400 5

Cisco MediaSense also can be virtualized. The table shows the virtual resource requirements and some selected system limitations per OVAtemplate.

The node type can be primary, secondary, or expansion node. Only the 7-vCPU template can be used as an expansion node. Calculate the number of video streams that are required to choose the correct OVA template size. The Cisco MediaSense server has three hard disks for the operating system, the database, and the storage of the recordings. The number of vCPUs has a direct impact on the number of available audio or video streams.
