While reviewing the VELOS F5OS information (specifically looking at 1.5), I notice that any Tenant other than 'T1-F5OS' states that it requires minimum of 2 slots.
"Requires 2 slots"
I hope I am misunderstanding but this sounds like a VELOS with only 1 blade (one slot currently) would be stuck only running T1 tenants, which are far to small for any easy migration (from legacy VIPRION / BIG-IP vCMP guests).
Maybe slots is suppose to mean vCPU?
Curious if anyone knows the answer / has tried to deploy larger Tenants than T1 on a single VELOS Blade.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As an Update a closer look further down in that document seems to indicate this '2 slots' may be refering to vCPU as I suspected. The table "Tenant sizing" lists T1 as minimum 1 vCPU and T2,ALL,T4 with 2 vCPU and Max instance per blade matching the expectation that both vCPU are on the same blade.
In other words the:
1vCPU w/ 22 max per blade
2vCPU w/ 11 max per blade
Makes me strongly think that there should be no requirement to have '2 blades'.
