VM-Series on SDX System Requirements

You can deploy multiple instances of the VM-Series firewall on the Citrix SDX server. Because each instance of the firewall requires a minimum resource allocation—number of CPUs, memory and disk space—on the SDX server, make sure to conform to the specifications below to ensure optimal performance.
SDX platforms
  • 11500, 11515, 11520, 11530, 11540, 11542
  • 13500, 14500, 16500, 18500, 20500
  • 22040, 22060, 22080, 22100, 22120
  • 24100, 24150
  • 17550, 19550, 20550, 21550
SDX version
10.1 is not supported; a software version higher than 10.1. is required.
Citrix XenServer version
6.0.2 or later
Minimum System Resources
Plan and allocate the total number of data interfaces that you might require on the VM-Series firewall. This task is essential during initial deployment, because adding or removing interfaces to the VM-Series firewall after initial deployment will cause the data interfaces (Eth 1/1 and Eth 1/2) on the VM-Series firewall to re-map to the adapters on the SDX server. Each data interface sequentially maps to the adapter with the lowest numerical value, and this remapping can cause a configuration mismatch on the firewall.
  • The host CPU must be a x86-based Intel or AMD CPU with virtualization extension.
  • Two network interfaces: one dedicated for management traffic and one for data traffic. For management traffic, you can use the 0/x interfaces on the management plane or the 10/x interfaces on the dataplane. Assign additional network interfaces for data traffic, as required for your network topology.
  • See VM-Series System Requirements for the minimum hardware requirements for your VM-Series model.
