These are generic hardware requirements for PortaBilling or PortaSwitch components. Please note these requirements may vary to serve particular purposes in specific networks.

contactIn order to ensure the chosen hardware set 100% satisfies the requirements and provides adequate performance, submit your preferred configuration to PortaOne engineering team for review prior to placing an order with your hardware vendor.

* Write cache of the RAID controller significantly decreases write latency, thus you need to turn on the RAID's option "Force Write Back" into Always mode.

Please note that all servers must:

  • Have DVD-ROM drive or USB slot
  • Have two network (Gigabit Ethernet) ports
  • Have a remote access card like Dell iDRAC Enterprise, HP iLO Advanced (or be connected to IP KVM and remote power switch)

PortaSwitch® can be installed from optical discs (an IDE or a USB DVD-ROM) or from USB flash drives.

Please avoid any entry-level or desktop-oriented components - use only high-performance ones, for example:

  • RAID must be write cache enabled
  • CPUs must be of the server type (Xeon or Opteron/Epyc), released in 2016 or later. Baseline CPU model is Xeon E5-2620 V4

Download HW compatibility CDIn order to identify whether PortaSwitch can be installed on the specific server you plan to purchase, you must use the "Hardware compatibility CD", provided by PortaOne. Download the CD image and burn it on the CD using any of the CD-recording programs. Boot up from this CD, and PortaSwitch test utility will detect if all of the required components (e.g. network interface) are available and supported by Linux (RedHat).
