Server specifications for LiveSP platform
For hosting the LiveSP main database on a large production platform (above 200 CPEs), please consider the following recommendations:
1. The partition on which the data is stored must be an XFS file system.
2. Very large SPs have installed LiveSP with physical machines for the database and used their Cloud VM infrastructure for the other LiveSP components.
3. Our many years of experience with typical SP cloud infrastructures leads us to strongly recommend physical machines with local SSD over Virtual Machines.
If you still plan to install the database layer on a virtual infrastructure for a large network, we decline responsibility for the end-user quality of experience, as the GUI responsiveness may suffer.
