What are the requirements of a production system?

Operating System

Rhino 2.3.1 is supported on Solaris 10, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, CentOS 5.5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.3 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.5 Operating Systems. It has also been successfully deployed on other versions of Linux (and Windows for the SDK version) — for help with other operating systems, please contact OpenCloud Sales.

Hardware

The general hardware requirements below are for a Rhino 2.3.1 production system, used for:

  • performance testing — to validate whether or not the combination of Rhino, resource adaptors and applications exceeds performance requirements
  • failure testing — to validate whether or not the combination of Rhino, resource adaptors and applications displays appropriate characteristics in failure conditions
  • and (ultimately) live deployment.
Hardware Minimum Recommended
Type of machine Current commodity hardware and CPUs
Number of machines
(one cluster node per machine)
1 2 or more
Number of CPU cores per machine 2 2 – 16
RAM requirements per machine 1 GB 2+ GB
Network interface Switched ethernet
Network interface requirements per machine 2 interfaces at 100MB
(one interface for cluster communication)
2 or more interfaces at 1GB
(one interface for cluster communication)
Performance measures and targets vary, based on the application. The requirements above are for configurations without load-generation hardware or SS7 connectivity.
For more information on how to configure Rhino as a two-node cluster please see the Rhino Administration and Deployment Guide, section 8 Cluster Membership.
