The Telco & VMware Box
We thought for sure that our wildly popular m2.xlarge would fit just about every need. Ends up we were missing one important element: more network ports!
On the network side, we've replaced our the dual port Mellanox ConnectX-4 with a quad-port Intel x710 NIC, giving you 4 x 10Gbps and lots of room for network segmentation.
The other specs? Dual Xeon Gold 5120 processors mean you get 28 physical cores with a 2.2Ghz base clock speed (3.2Ghz max turbo) and 384 GB of blazing fast RAM and a beefy 3.8 TB NVMe drive keep you at the top of the specifications chart (please note that some earlier configurations featured a 3.2 TB NVMe drive).
