Extreme Networks IDS network sensor and Enterprise Management Server (EMS) can be deployed on VMware ESX servers. With these virtual machine options, enterprises gain additional, cost-efficient, network threat protection and the ability to monitor both the physical and virtual network. Leverage the enterprise's virtual environment for added security with the benefits of cost savings from using existing hardware, and reduced time to value.
The EMS and Network Sensor virtual appliances are packaged in the OVA file format, which is a one-file alternative to the Open Virtualization Format, an ANSI standard. Extreme Networks fully supports these virtual appliances when run on a VMware ESX or ESXi version 4.1 and higher with sufficient resources.
The EMS virtual appliance requires 4 GB of memory, two CPU cores, and 60 GB of thick provisioned hard drive space. The Network Sensor virtual appliance requires 2 GB of memory, two CPU cores, and 20 GB of thick provisioned hard drive space. Additional CPU and memory resources may enhance the performance of some configurations.
