The application and database servers can be deployed on a virtual machine; however, it is recommended that they
are on different virtual machines. It is important to reserve CPU and memory resources exclusively for HP Codar on a
virtual machine so that the product can function with reasonable throughput.

IMPORTANT – HP Codar deployment guidelines
HP strongly recommends that you install the HP Codar database server on a physical server, and not on a virtual
machine, to get good response from HP Codar. If you choose to deploy the HP Codar (one or more nodes with the
Management Console) on a virtual machine, you must reserve CPU and memory resources exclusively for HP Codar,
so that the product can function with reasonable throughput. Use the guidelines below for resource reservation for an
HP Codar instance with the following load characteristics:
CPU: 4 CPUs, 3.0 GHz per CPU
Memory: 8 GB
This configuration for HP Codar application server can support the following load:

Six simultaneous provisioning requests

30 subscriptions generated per hour

Service components in design processed < 120 per hour

Total REST API call-back from HP Operations Orchestration to HP Codar for single VM provision of < 18
For higher loads, you may need a system with more hardware resources or additional HP Codar nodes in a cluster.
Please refer to the HP Codar Configuration Guide and High Availability Guide for additional details.
HP Codar IPv6 support
HP Software is committed to providing support for the network Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) for our enterprise
software products and solutions. HP Codar supports installation on hosts implementing dual-stack (IPv4/IPv6)
transport. HP Codar can deploy Cloud Server Services using network Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6).
Table 2. HP Codar network transport support
HP Codar
HP Codar is supported for installation on the platforms listed below when configured for
