Servers, Software, and Network Devices Tested

Node Servers and Servers Tested in the Cloud CPE Solution

The Cloud CPE solution uses commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) node servers or servers for both the centralized and distributed deployments for the following functions:

  • Contrail Service Orchestration central and regional servers
  • Contrail Analytics servers
  • Contrail Cloud Platform in the centralized deployment

Table 2 lists the node servers and servers that have been tested for these functions in the Cloud CPE solution. You should use these specific node servers or servers for the Cloud CPE solution.
