Server system recommendations

Link copied to clipboard
  • Four (4) Linux Servers for the PortaBilling:
    • Real-time billing engine (RADIUS).
    • Main database server.
    • Server for web-interfaces (web interface for administrators and self-care portal, XML API services, periodic tasks, invoicing) and replica database.
    • Configuration management (this server is also used for monitoring the other servers and collecting and processing log information).
  • A minimum of 250 GB of available disk space on each billing server. On the average, 200,000 CDRs take up about 1 GB of disk space (this includes database files, indexes and binary logs, raw RADIUS detail files, billing engine log files and other related information), plus you need to reserve an amount of free space roughly equal to the projected database size for performing operations such as backup. RAID is recommended in order to improve performance and reliability.The Configuration server requires about 500 GB of free disk space if you are using PortaSwitch (where log files from the PortaSIP dispatching and processing nodes need to be processed), and 250 GB of free disk space if you are using the PortaBilling standalone.
  • A 64-bit processor (Xeon, Opteron).
  • At least 8 GB of RAM, 16 GB recommended.
  • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).

For additional details and configuration advice, see the Hardware Requirements topic on our website.

For information about whether particular hardware is supported by Oracle Enterprise Linux used as the operating system in PortaSwitch, consult the related document on the Oracle or RedHat website: https://hardware.redhat.com/.

  • Nine servers with Intel Xeon or AMD Opteron/Epyc CPUs. Multi-CPU servers are recommended – there is no licensing limit on the number of CPUs or cores. Each server must be equipped with a DVD drive or USB port (at least temporarily, during installation). Please also see the hardware requirements below:
    • Database servers (3 units):
      • At least 32 GB of RAM, 64 GB recommended.
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • If a disk array with fiber-channel connectivity is used for data storage, each server should be equipped with a fiber-channel adapter card.
      • At least 500 GB of local storage.
    • OCS servers (3 units):
      • At least 16 GB of RAM, 32 GB recommended.
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • Minimum 500 GB of available disk storage, 1TB is recommended..
    • Web servers (2 units):
      • 32 GB of RAM.
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • Minimum 500 GB of available disk storage, 1TB is recommended.
    • Configuration server (1 unit):
      • 32 GB of RAM (64GB for heavily loaded systems).
      • Two Gigabit network ports (can be two separate network adapters or a single dual-port adapter).
      • 2TB of available disk space.

When choosing a specific server model, please ask your vendor about its compatibility with Linux compatibility.

  • RAID is recommended in order to improve performance and reliability.
  • Shared disk storage for the Oracle RAC database and other related data can be either direct attached storage, iSCSI, or FC Storage Area Network (SAN). Please see the Oracle Verified configuration on the Oracle website for examples of supported storage solutions. A minimum of 500 GB of free disk space should be available.
  • All servers must have remote access controllers with remote console access like Dell iDRAC Enterprise/ HP iLO Advanced/IBM IPMI..
