Sentrion Message Processors are high performance messaging appliances, servers and applications for enterprise email infrastructure. Sentrion Message Processors are available in multiple deployment options and all rely upon the same proven enterprise email infrastructure platform, and the Sentrion Message Processing Engine.
The Sentrion Virtual Message Processor (MPV) is a VMWare-based version of the Sentrion MP hard appliance. With Sentrion MPV, organizations get all of the benefits of the Sentrion MP hard appliance plus the additional benefits of a virtual appliance:
- Complete Sentrion Message Processing Engine in a “Virtual Machine”
- Ideal for “green data centers”
- Reduces power consumption
- Provides higher utilization rate per/server
- Increases operational efficiency
- Lowers total cost of ownership of servers
- Runs on existing X86 hardware
Sendmail recommends the following specification enhancements for host systems running three or more Sentrion MPV instances in a production environment:
|Recommended Host System Requirements
|VMware ESX 3.5 or later
|Two Quad-core processors at 3.0 GHz (eight cores total)
|16 GB/667 MHz RAM
|Four 100/1000M NIC ports, allowing a dedicated ESX administration port and three addressable ports for the virtual machines
All Sentrion appliances rely on the Sentrion Message Processing Engine and run all of the applications found in the Sentrion Application Store.
