The SD-WAN Gateway runs on a standard hypervisor (KVM or VMware ESXi).
Minimum Server Requirements
To run the hypervisor:
- 10 Intel CPU's at 2.0 Ghz or higher. The CPU must support the AES-NI, SSSE3, SSE4, and RDTSC instruction sets.
- 20+ GB (16 GB is required for SD-WAN Gateway VM memory)
- 100 GB magnetic or SSD based, persistent disk volume
- 2 x 1 Gbps (or higher) network interface. The physical NIC card supported are Intel 82599/82599ES and Intel X710/XL710 chipsets (for SR-IOV support).

Supported Hypervisor Versions
SD-WAN Gateway Virtual Hardware Specification
For VMware, the OVA already specifies the minimum virtual hardware specification. For KVM, an example XML file will be provided. The minimum virtual hardware specifications are:
- 8 vCPUs
- 8 GB of memory
- Minimum of one vNICs:
- The First vNIC is the public (outside) interface, which must be an untagged interface.
- The Second vNIC is optional and acts as the private (inside) interface that can support VLAN tagging dot1q and Q-in-Q. This interface typically faces the PE router or L3 switch.
Important: Currently, Partner Gateway VLAN tagging is not supported on SR-IOV interfaces. To support VLAN tagging, use VMXNET3 on ESXi environment or use Linux Bridge with VLAN filtering on KVM
- Optional vNIC (if a separate management/OAM interface is required).
- 64 GB of virtual disk.
- The firewall needs to allow outbound traffic from the SD-WAN Gateway to TCP/443 (for communication with SD-WAN Orchestrator).
- The firewall needs to allow inbound traffic from the Internet to UDP/2426 (VCMP), UDP/4500, and UDP/500. If NAT is not used, then the firewall needs to also allow IP/50 (ESP).
- If NAT is used, the above ports must be translated to an externally reachable IP address. Both the 1:1 NAT and port translations are supported.
