Question
How does Extreme define “Small”, “Large” and “Enterprise” in the ExtremeManagement Center Client/Server system requirements?
 
Environment
ExtremeManagement
Answer
There are many factor to consider which makes setting an Extreme Management server resource size a bit of a challenge.
 
If managed switches is the only consideration for the deployment we recommend the following sizing:
Appliance Size: 
Small – less than 100 managed devices
Large – 100 to 750 managed device
Enterprise – greater than managed 750
 
Other factors that drive up the server resource requirements:
-          Access Control(NAC) and # of End Systems
-          Assessment
-          Switch and Wireless Device Collection
-          Analytics (# of Flow Sensors and new Flow Rate)
-          # of Wireless Controllers, # of Mobile Users, and MU Events
 
If Access Control, Collection, Assessment, or Analytics are part of the deployment we recommend either the large or enterprise sizing depending on network size and capabilities deployed.
