We are looking into setting up a virtual NTA environment. Trying to get an idea of what kind of resources the virtual servers will require with the following specs taken into consideration. 600-1200 flows per second for approximately 36.9 million flows per day. This is roughly 20 devices. We would like to have 2 hours of uncompressed real time and 30 days of compressed. Biggest question on our end is what the VMware DB server needs to look like. Thanks for any recommendations.
Quad-core CPU, 8 GB RAM, and 60-80GB HDD for data storage should be sufficient for you. To get better performance you can increase amount of RAM.
