Kserver Hardware Configuration - Question.

  • Looking to manage 5000 endpoints with the following server configuration. Can any one verify whether the following configuration is good enough for single server to manage 5000 end points.

    UCS C22 M3 SFF w/ rail kit  w/o PSU  CPU  mem  HDD  PCIe
    SMARTNET 24X7X4 UCS C22 M3 Server - SFF
    2.20 GHz E5-2430/95W 6C/15MB Cache/DDR3 1333MHz
    8GB DDR3-1333-MHz RDIMM/PC3-10600/2R/1.35v
    146GB 6Gb SAS 15K RPM SFF HDD/hot plug/drive sled mounted
    Power Cord 250VAC 10A BS1363 Plug (13 A fuse) UK
    650W power supply for C-series rack servers
    Embedded SW RAID 0/1/10/5 8 ports SAS/SATA
    Cisco VIC 1225 Dual Port 10Gb SFP+ CNA
  • I don't think that would even come close, it would do as a front end for a split setup. That's before you start to add other modules.

  • I Apologoize.. I missed the count..  Here we go..

    UCS C22 M3 SFF w/ rail kit  w/o PSU  CPU  mem  HDD  PCIe -1

    SMARTNET 24X7X4 UCS C22 M3 Server - SFF - 1

    2.20 GHz E5-2430/95W 6C/15MB Cache/DDR3 1333MHz - 2

    8GB DDR3-1333-MHz RDIMM/PC3-10600/2R/1.35v -  4

    146GB 6Gb SAS 15K RPM SFF HDD/hot plug/drive sled mounted - 4

    Power Cord 250VAC 10A BS1363 Plug (13 A fuse) UK  - 1

    650W power supply for C-series rack servers - 1

    Embedded SW RAID 0/1/10/5 8 ports SAS/SATA - 1

    Cisco VIC 1225 Dual Port 10Gb SFP+ CNA - 1

  • Also this server will be configured with most of the add-on modules offered by kaseya.

  • Looks good but I would recommend adding a second power supply (always a fan of redundancy) and switching to a hardware RAID controller w/1GB Cache or more.

  • Thanks Tim. We already ordered for one more power supply and thinking of moving from  SW RAID to the Hardware one.

  • HW raid is a big key point here. SW raid is just too slow to handle the agent check-ins, run the scritpts and support the sizeable SQL database you'll be working with.

    Can't see the point of the 10Gb SFP ports, unless you've got supporting 10Gb infrastructure.

  • We just upgraded our K server. Running 3K + endpoints. SAS is good for the data, but put the database on a SSD RAID array. Moving ours from our SAS RAID10 to a SSD RAID1 made a huge improvement. You don't need large SSDs either if it just holds the DB and TRN files.
