    Hi Team,

    I have to setup new Gateways in different environments like DEV, QA and PROD. I have to know the recommended specifications for the VM(Virtual Machines) on which i have to install GW.

    I want to know the recommended or minimal requirement for setup of gateway as Standalone and In Cluster both. Thanks in advance.

    Regards
    Prat

    Hi Prat

    The minimum recommend settings for "Dev" environment are 4 vCPU - 8GB of RAM for Gateway 9.x
    For "PROD" take as main reference our physical Hardware Appliance and then scale down horizontally when moving from a single to multiple virtualised clustered nodes.

    For instance: our mid-range Hardware Appliance Oracle X-52 come with the following specs:

    Single or Dual 8x Core CPU
    16 GB (for Single CPU) or 32GB (for Dual CPU) of RAM

    Reference: https://docops.ca.com/ca-api-gateway/9-4/en/release-notes-9-4/requirements-and-compatibility/appliance-gateway-compatibility#ApplianceGatewayCompatibility-X5-2OracleX5-2Server

    So, if you decide to go on Virtual Appliance, split above resources based on the number of nodes you decide to implement in the same cluster, for example:

    1x Gateway node with either 8 or 16 vCPU and 32GB of RAM
    2x Gateway Nodes with 8 vCPU and 16 GB of RAM
    4x Gateway Nodes with 4 vCPU and 8 GB of RAM

    We do have a Virtual Appliance Deployment Best Practice section in our product guide, which contains other useful information:

    I hope this helps
